The Arduino-compatible IMU is a project by Chris Anderson and Jordi Muñoz to create an AHRS (attitude heading reference system) for UAV control and general motion capture. This is the main board for the ArduPilot 6DOF. By itself, this board works as a 4DOF -- it produces three axes of acceleration and one axis of angular velocity data. This board can be connected to up to two ArduPilot 6DOF daughter boards which will each add one more axis of angular velocity information. The main board can be connected directly to the ArduPilot analog pins.
The ArduPilot 6DOF main board comes equipped with one LISY300AL, a single axis ±300°/s gyro, and one ADXL335, a three axis ±3g accelerometer. All filtering components are included. There are no on-board regulators so power provided should be clean and regulated 3.3V.
Note: The silkscreen on this board is slightly incorrect. The Z and Y accel axis labels are swapped. The board still works great. The pin labels will be corrected on the next version.
