This product has been discontinued.

This board has been replaced by the L3GD20 and L3GD20H 3-axis gyro carriers.

This sensor is a carrier/breakout board for the ST L3G4200D three-axis gyroscope, which measures the angular rates of rotation about the roll (X), pitch (Y), and yaw (Z) axes. Angular velocity measurements with a configurable range of ±250°/s, ±500°/s, or ±2000°/s can be read through a digital I²C or SPI interface. The board operates from 2.5–5.5 V and has a 0.1″ pin spacing.
