Gyroscope Module 3-Axis L3G4200D from Parallax



The Gyroscope Module is a low power 3-axis angular rate sensor featuring temperature data as an added bonus.

Raw measured angular rate and temperature data are accessed from the selectable digital interface (I2C or SPI). The module features a small package design and has an easy to access SIP interface with a mounting hole for quick connectivity to your projects. It is designed for use with a large variety of microcontrollers with different voltage requirements.

Application Ideas:

  • Gaming
  • 3D motion control
  • Virtual reality input devices
  • Robotics
  • UAV, IMU systems
