LSM9DS0 Hookup Guide
Resources and Going Further
Hopefully that info dump was enough to get you rolling with the LSM9DS0. If you need any more information, here are some more resources:
- Schematic (PDF)
- EAGLE Files (ZIP)
- LSM9DS0 Datasheet (PDF) -- This datasheet covers everything from the hardware and pinout of the IC, to the register mapping of the gyroscope and accelerometer/magnetometer.
- Arduino Library
- GitHub Repo
- SFE Product Showcase
Now that you've got the LSM9DS0 up-and-running, what project are you going to incorporate motion-sensing into? Need a little inspiration? Check out some of these tutorials!
- Getting Started With the RedBot -- The RedBot is a great entry-level robotics platform. It'd be really neat to see what could be done with an LSM9DS0 connected to it.
- Dungeons and Dragons Dice Gauntlet -- This project uses an accelerometer to sense a "rolling the dice" motion. You could swap in the LSM9DS0 to add more functionality -- like compass-based damage multipliers!
- Leap Motion Teardown -- An IMU sensor is cool, but image-based motion sensing is the future. Check out this teardown of the miniature-Kinect-like Leap Motion!
