This Ardu IMU Sensor Board is Discontinued Now, We recommend other best selling arduino sensors as a suitable replacement.

The Arduino-compatible IMU is a project by Chris Anderson and Jordi Muñoz to create an AHRS (attitude heading reference system) for UAV control and general motion capture. This is the main board for the ArduIMU 6DOF. By itself, this board works as a 4DOF -- it produces three axes of acceleration and one axis of angular velocity data. This board can be connected to up to two Ardu 6DOF daughter boards which will each add one more axis of angular velocity information.  

The ArduIMU 6DOF main board comes equipped with one LISY300AL, a single axis ±300°/s gyro, and one ADXL335, a three axis ±3g accelerometer. All filtering components are included. There are no on-board regulators so power provided should be clean and regulated 3.3V.


  • 4 degrees of freedom:
  • ADXL335 - three axes of acceleration, ±3g range
  • LISY300AL - one axis of angular velocity, ±300°/s range
  • Compatible with ArduIMU 6DOF daughter boards to get up to 6 degrees of freedom
  • Analog output of all 6 axes is sent to ArduIMU analog pins
  • 0.1" pitch headers to connect to daughter boards and ArduIMU
  • Dimensions: 0.9x0.6"
