STMicroelectronics – LSM6DS0

LSM6DS0 features a 3-axis linear accelerometer and a 3-axis digital gyroscope in the same package. Two operating modes offer high flexibility thanks to accelerometer & gyroscope running at the same ODR or accelerometer enabled while the gyroscope is in power-down mode. ODR can be configured to reduce the overall power consumption of your application which is meaningful for battery operated systems and wearable devices. LSM6DS0 is the first member of LSM6DS family which delivers excellent 6-axis performances to enhance end-user experience. It is housed in a small package for easier integration in connected devices.
