MPU-6000 is the world's first integrated 6-axis motion processing components, compared to the multi-component programs, eliminating the inter-axis gyroscope and accelerator when the combination of the problem of poor, reducing the amount of packaging space. MPU-6000 integrates a 3-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer, and may contain other brands of the accelerator by a second I2C port connection, magnetic sensors, or digital motion processing other sensors (DMP: Digital Motion Processor) hardware acceleration engine, the main I2C ports to form a single data stream, to complete the application side of the output shaft 9 fusion algorithm technology

InvenSense's motion processing library that can handle complex data movement sensing, motion processing reduces the computing load the operating system, and provide a framework of API for application development.

MPU-6000 full-frame angular velocity sensing range of ± 250, ± 500, ± 1000 and ± 2000 ° / sec (dps), though this is very fast and accurate recovery slow movement, and the user can program the full control of the accelerator grid flu measuring range of ± 2g, ± 4g ± 8g and ± 16g. Product transport through the I2C or up to 400kHz up to 20MHz SPI.

MPU-6000 can operate at different voltages, VDD supply voltage referred to 2.5V ± 5%, 3.0V ± 5% or 3.3V ± 5%, the logical interface VVDIO power to 1.8V ± 5%. MPU-6000 package size 4x4x0.9mm (QFN), the size of the industry is revolutionary. Other features include a built-in temperature sensor is included in the operating environment, only ± 1% change in the oscillator.
