Triple axis accelerometer(MPU6050)

Introduction

The MPU-6050 combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die together with an build-in Digital Motion Processor(DMP) capable of processing complex 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms, the MPU-6050A does away with the cross-axis alignment problems that can creep up on discrete parts.

Features

Input Voltage: 3V-5V

Dimensions: 20 * 15 * 1.6mm

Selectable Solder Jumpers on CLK, FSYNC and AD0

synchronization and gesture detection

Tri-Axis accelerometer with a programmable full scale range of +-2g, +-4g, +-8g and 16g

Digital Motion Processing(DMP engine offloads complex MotionFusion, sensor timing

I2C Digital-output of 6 or 9-axis MotionFusion data in rotation matrix, quaternion, Euler Angle, or raw data format

Tri-Axis angular rate sensor (gyro) with a sensitivity up to 131 LSBs/dps and a full-scale range of 250, 500, 1000, and 2000dps

Embedded algorithms for run-time bias and compass calibration. No user intervention required

Digital-output temperature sensor
