9-Axis Sensor Wireling

AST1002

Whisker Kickstarter Item


Note: This item is currently only available on Kickstarter, it will be for sale on our site after the Kickstarter is complete and rewards have been fulfilled



DESCRIPTION

This Wireling lets you measure 9 degrees of freedom (9DOF) with any TinyCircuits processor board of choice and features the ST LSM9DS1 - a system-in-package featuring a 3D digital linear acceleration sensor, a 3D digital angular rate sensor, and a 3D digital magnetic sensor.

The LSM9DS1 has a linear acceleration full scale of ±2g/±4g/±8/±16 g, a magnetic field full scale of ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss and an angular rate of ±245/±500/±2000 dps.

The Wireling Adapter TinyShield (ASD2022) incorporates level shifting and a local power supply to ensure proper and safe operation over the entire TinyDuino operating voltage range up to 5V.

    TECH SPECS

    ST LSM9DS1 9-Axis DOF Specs

    • 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
    • 16-bit data output
    • “Always-on” eco power mode down to 1.9 mA
    • Embedded temperature sensor
    • Embedded FIFO

    • Click/double-click recognition

    TinyDuino Power Requirements

    • Voltage: 3.0V - 5.5V 
    • Current: 4.6mA (Normal Mode).  Due to the low current, this board can be run using the TinyDuino coin cell option

    Pins Used

    • A5/SCL - I²C Serial Clock line
    • A4/SDA - I²C Serial Data line

    Dimensions

    • 10mm x 10mm (.394 inches x .394 inches)
    • Max Height (from the lower bottom of Wireling to upper top Wireling Connector): 3.70mm (0.15 inches)
    • Weight: 1 gram (.04 ounces)

    NOTES

    • You can also use this board without the TinyDuino – modifying the connecting cable by removing the opposite connector and stripping/tinning the wires, you can solder the connector cable to any other microcontroller board of your choice!
