LISY300 Gyroscope Module

The LISY300 Gyroscope Module is a single-axis yaw rate sensor providing up to 300°/s full scale rotation detection at up to 88 Hz. Useful in balancing robots or auto-pilot systems, the LISY300 Gyroscope Module can detect how many degrees it has turned on its planar axis allowing the host microcontroller to stabilize the platform or correct for drift.

  • ± 300°/s full scale
  • Easy SPI interface
  • Small DIP form factor

Application Ideas:
  • R/C Helicopter stabilization
  • Auto-pilot system for R/C airplanes
  • Balancing robot

Key Specifications:
  • Power requirements: 3.4 VDC to 6.5 VDC (5 VDC recommended) @ 5.25 mA
  • Communication: SPI (4 MHz max)
  • Dimensions: 0.75 x 0.69 x 0.47 in (19.18 x 17.56 x 11.95 mm)
  • Operating temp range: +32°F to +158°F (0°C to +70°C)
