3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis magnetometer in one IC Accelerometer range ±2/±4/±8/±16 g Magnetometer range ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss Gyroscope range ±245/±500/±2000 degrees per second Multiple interrupt lines Selectable I2C address Individual sensors can be powered down to reduce consumption 3.3V power supply
9DOF click carries ST's LSM9DS1 iNEMO inertial measurement module that combines a 3D accelerometer, a 3D gyroscope and a 3D magnetometer into a single device producing so-called Nine Degrees of Freedom data (3-axis acceleration, angular velocity and heading), in 16-bit resolution. The advantage of the accel/gyro/compass combination is that it gives enough data to orient an object in space in relation to its initial position, i.e. dead reckoning.
The accelerometer measures full-scale ±2/±4/±8/±16 g acceleration. The magnetometer has ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss magnetic, also full scale. The angular rate of the gyroscope is ±245/±500/±2000 dps, full scale. The LSM9DS1 also integrates a FIFO buffer for all three channels of the accelerometer and gyroscope.
9DOF click communicates with your target MCU through the mikroBUS I2C interface (SCL and SDA) with additional functionality provided by the programmable Interrupt (INT) pin, as well as the Enable (EN) pin. The IC has multiple interrupt lines which can be activated by soldering jumpers J3-J6 on the board (J6 is made by default). The I2C address can be specified in the same manner (jumpers are in positions 0,0 by default).
This board is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
Note: The picture shows the board with through-hole headers. The board now comes populated with male pin headers already soldered for your convenience. The board's user manual has yet to be updated to remove the soldering instructions.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, the Flip & Click Arduino/Python-compatible board, the Quail board, these mikromedia shields, the Microchip Curiosity board, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581) or Arduino Mega click shield (MIKROE-1900)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512) or Pi 2 click shield (MIKROE-1879)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596) or mikroBUS Cape (MIKROE-1857)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
- Freescale Freedom — FRDM-KL46Z click shield (MIKROE-1795) or FRDM-K64F click shield (MIKROE-1794)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
