MPU 9DOF click carries the MPU–9150 System in Package, which is the world’s first 9-axis Motion Tracking device. MPU–9150 comprises two chips. One is the MPU–6050 that contains a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a DMP (digital motion processor); the other is AK8975, a 3-axis digital compass. It is designed for the low power, low cost, and high performance requirements of consumer electronics equipment and wearable sensors. The ability to track motion in free space also makes MPU 9DOF click a suitable sensor for RC vehicles (e.g. quadcopters) and camera stabilisation systems.
MEMS sensors or Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems are the sensors and actuators at the bare metal of embedded systems. MEMS are used for airbag systems, automatic door locks, security systems , earthquake detection, inkjet printers, kitchen appliances, and of course computer peripherals. In this blog we will explore the different ways you can use MEMS sensors.
