SparkFun 9DoF IMU Breakout - LSM9DS1 by SparkFun Electronics

Autodesk EAGLE Design Block Description: The LSM9DS1 is a versatile, motion-sensing system-in-a-chip. It houses a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer – nine degrees of freedom (9DOF) in a single IC! The LSM9DS1 is equipped with a digital interface, but even that is flexible: it supports both I2C and SPI, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find a microcontroller it doesn’t work with. This IMU-in-a-chip is so cool we put it on the quarter-sized breakout board you are currently viewing! The LSM9DS1 is one of only a handful of IC’s that can measure three key properties of movement – angular velocity, acceleration, and heading – in a single IC. By measuring these three properties, you can gain a great deal of knowledge about an object’s movement and orientation. The LSM9DS1 measures each of these movement properties in three dimensions. That means it produces nine pieces of data: acceleration in x/y/z, angular rotation in x/y/z, and magnetic force in x/y/z. The LSM9DS1 Breakout has labels indicating the accelerometer and gyroscope axis orientations, which share a right-hand rule relationship with each other. Each sensor in the LSM9DS1 supports a wide spectrum of ranges: the accelerometer’s scale can be set to ± 2, 4, 8, or 16 g, the gyroscope supports ± 245, 500, and 2000 °/s, and the magnetometer has full-scale ranges of ± 4, 8, 12, or 16 gauss. Features: 3 acceleration channels, 3 angular rate channels, 3 magnetic field channels ±2/±4/±8/±16 g linear acceleration full scale ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss magnetic full scale ±245/±500/±2000 dps angular rate full scale SPI / I2C serial interfaces Operating Voltage: 3.3V

SparkFun LiPo Charger Basic - Micro-USB by SparkFun Electronics

Autodesk EAGLE Design Block Description: If you need to charge LiPo batteries, this simple charger will do just that, and do it fast! The SparkFun LiPo Charger Basic is stripped down of all features and just does one thing well - charge 3.7V LiPo cells at a rate of 500mA. It is designed to charge single-cell Li-Ion or Li-Polymer batteries. Check the datasheet below to see if it will work with your battery. The board incorporates a charging circuit, status LED, connector for your battery (JST-type used in the batteries we carry), and a micro-USB connector. A small mounting hole allows this charger to be easily embedded into a project. Note: This version uses a micro-USB cable. We also have this charger with a mini-USB connection as well. Dimensions: 29.4x10.8mm

SparkFun XBee Explorer USB by SparkFun Electronics

Autodesk EAGLE Design Block Description: This is a simple to use, USB to serial base unit for the Digi XBee line. This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro version. Plug the unit into the XBee Explorer, attach a mini USB cable, and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit. The highlight of this board is an FT231X USB-to-Serial converter. That’s what translates data between your computer and the XBee. There’s also a reset button, and a voltage regulator to supply the XBee with plenty of power. In addition, there are four LEDs that’ll help if you ever need to debug your XBee: RX, TX, RSSI (signal-strength indicator), and power indicator. This board also breaks out each of the XBee’s I/O pins to a pair of breadboard-compatible headers. So if you want to make use of the XBee’s extended functionality, you can solder some header pins into those, or even just solder some wire.

SparkFun Venus GPS with SMA Connector by SparkFun Electronics

Autodesk EAGLE Design Block Description: This is the latest version of our Venus GPS board; the smallest, most powerful, and most versatile GPS receiver we carry. It’s based on the Venus638FLPx, the successor to the Venus634LPx. The Venus638FLPx outputs standard NMEA-0183 or SkyTraq Binary sentences at a default rate of 9600bps (adjustable to 115200bps), with update rates up to 20Hz! The Venus638FLPx also allows for limited on-chip logging (check out the firmware below), as well as external logging using an SPI flash memory chip (not included). This board includes an SMA connector to attach an external antenna, headers for 3.3V serial data, NAV (lock) indication, Pulse-Per-Second output, and external Flash support. We’ve also provided solder jumpers to easily configure the power consumption, boot memory, and backup supply. This board requires a regulated 3.3V supply to operate; at full power, the board uses up to 90mA, at reduced power it requires up to 60mA. We’ve made it easy to connect an external battery or super capacitor to the board, to support very fast restarts after power is removed. Features: Up to 20Hz update rate -148dBm cold start sensitivity -165dBm tracking sensitivity 29 second cold start TTFF 3.5 second TTFF with AGPS 1 second hot start 2.5m accuracy Multipath detection and suppression Jamming detection and mitigation SBAS (WAAS / EGNOS) support 67mW full power navigation Works directly with active or passive antenna Internal flash for optional 75K point data logging Supports external SPI flash memory data logging Complete receiver in 10mm x 10mm x 1.3mm size Contains LNA, SAW Filter, TCXO, RTC Xtal, LDO Single 2.7-3.3V supply Dimensions: 1.15 x 0.7 inches
