DESCRIPTION

This 6 Degrees of Freedom Motion Sensor Breakout can detect acceleration in three axes - X, Y, and Z - as well as three axes of magnetic heading. It's ideal for building into robots, rockets, and rovers, or anywhere else where you want to measure motion accurately. It's compatible with Raspberry Pi or Arduino.

The LSM303D 6DoF Breakout has an I2C interface and is 3.3V or 5V compatible. Like our other Pimoroni breakouts, we've designed it so that you can solder a piece of right-angle header onto it and then pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 6, 9).

It's also compatible with our fancy new Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.

SPECIFICATIONS

Sensor Type:
  • IMU
Typical Input Voltage:
  • 3.3VDC
  • 5VDC
Interface:
  • Digital
Communication Protocol:
  • I2C

Notes

  • The trace between the solder pads (marked ADDR) can be cut (carefully with a craft knife) to change the I2C address from the default of 0x1D to 0x1E, meaning that you can use up to two sensors on the same Raspberry Pi or Arduino. If cut, the pads can be bridged again by soldering to reset the address to 0x1D.
