Free your Sensors with the Freescale 9-Axis Freedom Development Platform from Mouser

14 JULY 2014

Mouser is now shipping the FreescaleĀ® Freedom Development Platform for Xtrinsic Sensors.

This small Arduino compatible Freedom development board from Freescale Semiconductor is a cost-effective platform for evaluating Freescale’s digital gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, and position sensors. The Freescale FRDM FXS 9AXIS Freedom Development Platform available from Mouser Electronics allows developers to program and evaluate two of Freescale’s advanced digital sensor chips. The first is the FXAS21000 XTRINSIC 3 Axis Gyroscope, a small, low power digital gyroscope that measures yaw, pitch, and roll angular rates. The board also supports the powerful FXOS8700CQ 6-Axis digital sensor which combines the functions of a 3 axis 14 bit accelerometer and a 3 axis 16 bit magnetometer on a single chip. Both sensors provide I2C and SPI interfaces. These chips can be used in a number of applications including an electronic compass for mobile devices, smartphones, virtual reality games and personal navigation devices.
