New Open Source Hardware KiCAD project – MOD-MPU9150 9-axis motion tracking device with gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer

MOD-MPU9150

MOD-MPU9150 is 9-axis motion tracking device with 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer in small 4×4 mm package.

Possible applications: Motion-enabled game and application framework, gesture recognition, portable gaming, 3D remote controls, 3D mice, wearable sensors for fitness and sports, toys, navigation, electronic compass.

Features are:

  • 3-axis gyroscope ±2000°/sec
  • 3-axis accelerometer ±16g
  • 3-axis magnetometer ±1200μT
  • I2C interface

The female connector can connect directly to boards with UEXT creating small wearable devices which can track gestures etc:
