This gyroscope board is a basic carrier/breakout board for the ST LPY550AL dual-axis gyro, which measures the angular rates of rotation about the pitch (x) and yaw (z) axes. Two separate analog voltage outputs for each axis provide angular velocity ranges of ±500°/s and ±2000°/s. This board has a 3.3V regulator for easy integration with 5 V parts, includes a low-pass filter on each output for noise reduction, and is smaller than competing products, all at a lower price.
