This TinyShield features the high performance and lower power ST L3G4200D 3-axis gyroscope. The L3G4200D allows measurement of angular rates in three axes. There is also an integrated temperature sensor built in.
The Gyroscope TinyShield incorporates level shifters and a local power supply to ensure proper and safe operation over the entire TinyDuino operating voltage range up to 5V.
You can also use this shield without the TinyDuino – there are 0.1″ spaced holes for power, ground, and the two I2C signals along the side of the TinyShield to allow you to connect a different system.
