LPMS-ME1: Maker Edition 9-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

US$ 79



LPMS-ME1 is a low cost, high performance 9 axis inertial measurement unit (IMU). It integrates multiple sensors, a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis magnetometer into a single miniature device. Using the LP-RESEARCH IMUcore sensor fusion algorithm, the unit locally calculates high accuracy, real-time orientation (orientation quaternion or Euler angles) and relative displacement information. LPMS-ME1 is LP-RESEARCH’s most small-scale sensor solution, ready to be implemented into your device’s schematic / PCB design.

The unit contains a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of running all calculations on-board in real-time. For more information on our sensor fusion method please refer to the IMUcore description.
