Qwiic 6DoF - ISM330DHCX Hookup Guide
Do you need 6 degrees of freedom? We do! Behold the SparkFun Qwiic 6DoF - ISM330DHCX and the SparkFun Micro 6DoF IMU Breakout - ISM330DHCX (Qwiic) - both of which are Qwiic enabled breakouts featuring STMicroelectronics' ISM330DHCX; a high-performance 3D digital accelerometer and 3D digital gyroscope tailored for Industry 4.0 applications such as platform, optical image, and lens stabilization, robotics and industrial automation, navigations systems, and vibration monitoring and compensation.
Both of these accelerometers have a full-scale acceleration range of ±2/±4/±8/±16 g and a wide angular rate range of ±125/±250/±500/±1000/±2000/±4000 dps that enable its usage in a broad range of applications. An unmatched set of embedded features (Machine Learning Core, programmable FSM, FIFO, sensor hub, event decoding and interrupts) are enablers for implementing smart and complex sensor nodes which deliver high performance at very low power.
The full sized SparkFun Qwiic 6DoF - ISM330DHCX boasts the standard 1x1" form factor, while the Micro 6DoF IMU breakout clocks in at a teeny tiny 0.75 x 0.3 inches!
