Little Bird L3G4200D based 3 Axis Gyro


Product Overview

The L3G4200D Gyroscope Module is a low power 3-Axis angular rate sensor with temperature data. The gyroscope shows the rate of change in rotation on its X,Y and Z axes. Temperature output data and raw measured angular rate is accessed from the selectable digital interface (I²C or SPI). The module is a small package design and has an easy to access SIP interface with a mounting hole for quick connectivity to your projects. The module is designed for use with a large variety of microcontrollers with different voltage requirements.
