Accelerometer – Gyro LPY530AL Dual 300°

This is a breakout board for the ST’s dual-axis LPY530AL gyro.  The LPY530AL measures angular velocity along the pitch and yaw axes with a full scale of ±300°/s. Two different analog outputs are provided for both the x- and z- axes – one 1x amplified and the other 4x amplified.

A regulated voltage between 2.7 and 3.6VDC should be supplied to the power pins. We have the filtering circuits all set up; you’ll just need to connect the outputs to an ADC, and you’re ready to go.

There are two of these in the Lab.
