Bosch is the first company to get this right by taking a MEMS accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope and putting them on a single die with a high speed ARM Cortex-M0 based processor to digest all the sensor data, abstract the sensor fusion and real time requirements away, and spit out data you can use in quaternions, Euler angles or vectors.
Absolute Orientation (Euler Vector, 100Hz) Three axis orientation data based on a 360° sphere
Absolute Orientation (Quaterion, 100Hz) Four point quaternion output for more accurate data manipulation
Angular Velocity Vector (100Hz) Three axis of 'rotation speed' in rad/s
Acceleration Vector (100Hz) Three axis of acceleration (gravity + linear motion) in m/s^2
Magnetic Field Strength Vector (20Hz) Three axis of magnetic field sensing in micro Tesla (uT)
Linear Acceleration Vector (100Hz) Three axis of linear acceleration data (acceleration minus gravity) in m/s^2
Gravity Vector (100Hz) Three axis of gravitational acceleration (minus any movement) in m/s^2
Temperature (1Hz) Ambient temperature in degrees celsius
So the very nice sensor has been placed on its own breakout, complete with 3.3V regulator, logic level shifting for the Reset and I2C pins, an external 32.768KHz crystal (recommended for best performance), and breakouts for some other pins you might find handy. Comes assembled and tested, with a small piece of header. Some soldering is required to attach the header to the breakout PCB, but its pretty easy work.
If you\'ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun bi-directional logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V AND steps up 3.3V to 5V at the same time. This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. What really separates this Logic level...
If you are sourcing a ultrasonic ranging module , the HC-SR04 is good choose . Its stable performance and high ranging accuracy make it a popular module in electronic market .Compared to the Shap IR ranging module , HC-SR04 is more inexpensive than it . But it has the same ranging accuracy and longer ranging distance.
Because the Arduino (and Basic Stamp) are 5V devices, and most modern sensors, displays, flash cards and modes are 3.3V-only, many makers find that they need to perform level shifting/conversion to protect the 3.3V device from 5V.
DS3231 is a low-cost, extremely accurate I2C real-time clock (RTC), with an integrated temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) and crystal. Compared to the DS1302 solution, the DS3231 has many advantages, it function with a VCC ranging from 2.3V to 5.5V and has a battery backup. Unlike the DS1307, the DS3231 also has an integrated crystal (so no...
The module (MicroSD Card Adapter) is a Micro SD card reader module, through the file system and the SPI interface driver, MCU to complete the file system to read and write MicroSD card. Users can directly use IDE comes with an SD card to complete the library card initialization and read-write.
This 47 x 35mm (1.84 x 1.37") breadboard has 17 rows of tie points, enough for up to two 14 or 16 pin DIP integrated circuits (ICs). The board features an adhesive backing and is Blue color. Add some color to your next project!
