CHR-6dm Attitude and Heading Reference System

Vendor's Description: 

This IMU from CH Robotics is an Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) that combines three gyro axes, three accelerometer axes, three magnetic compass axes, and a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex on one tiny, 2.7g board. An on-board Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) handles the tricky data fusion problem, reporting yaw, pitch, and roll angles at up to 300 Hz over a simple TTL serial interface. The CHR-6dm provides built-in routines for gyro bias calibration, and PC software is available for automatic soft and hard iron magnetometer calibration. The Cortex’s programming pins are exposed, and the firmware is open-source.
