Product Description



  • Integrates 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerator, including the hardware accelerator engine for devices connected to the second I2C port, like another accelerator of other brands, magnetometer, or Digital Motion Processor (DMP) of other sensors
  • With three 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for digitizing the gyroscope outputs and another three ones for digitizing the accelerometer outputs
  • Supports the I2C serial interface and has a separate VLOGIC reference pin
  • User-programmable gyroscope, with a full-scale range of ±250, ±500, ±1000, and ±2000°/sec (dps) and a user-programmable accelerometer with a full-scale range of ±2g, ±4g, ±8g, and ±16g
  • Working voltage: 3.3v-5v; PCB size: 1.65 x 2.0 cm
  • InstantGesture iG gesture recognition 
  • Location-based services, points of interest, and dead reckoning 
  • Handset and portable gaming 
  • Motion-based game controllers 
  • 3D remote controls for Internet connected DTVs and set top boxes, 3D mice 
  • Wearable sensors for health, fitness and sports 
  • Toys

Unlike other boards, this one has a built-in 3.3V low-dropout regulator, so connect VCC to 5V, not 3.3V otherwise the chip might not get enough voltage to work. A link to a schematic of the GY-521 is available on the Arduino Playground MPU-6050 page. The By TechBuyer 2016-05-19 14:40:05

Works great, as any MPU-6050 breakout board should.
