The EVAL-ADXRS450Z is a simple breakout board that enables easy connection of an ADXRS450 into an existing system. The ADXRS450 is a digital-output, single-axis gyroscope with built-in temperature calibration.
The ADXRS450 is available in two packages: an SOIC package for yaw-axis rate sensing, and a vertical-mount package (VMP) for pitch- or roll-axis sensing. In applications requiring multi-axis sensing, the innovative VMP greatly simplifies assembly by eliminating the need for additional boards mounted at 90°. Breakout boards are available for the ADXRS450 in both packages, as listed in the Ordering Guide below.
Due to its small size and stiff PCB, the EVAL-ADXRS450Z has minimal effect on performance of the system and of the gyroscope, and thus it is ideal for evaluation of the ADXRS450 in an existing system. Note that the ADXRS450 requires digital communication via SPI. No processor is included with the EVAL-ADXRS450Z; firmware must be supplied externally by the user. For an evaluation system that includes a processor, please see the EVAL-ADXRS450Z-M.
