Have you seen/used this GYRO sensor before?

Gyro Breakout Board - LPR5150AL

Never use this board before. so I try this code in Arduino:

const int analogInPin1 = A1;

const int analogInPin2 = A2;

int sensorValue1 = 0;

int sensorValue2 = 0;

void setup() {

  Serial.begin(9600); 

}

 

void loop() {

  sensorValue1 = analogRead(analogInPin1);

  sensorValue2 = analogRead(analogInPin2);

  Serial.print("X = ");

  Serial.print(sensorValue1);

  Serial.print("\t  |  Y = ");                       

  Serial.print(sensorValue2);                  

  Serial.println("");

  delay(10);                     

}

It seems reading some value from monitor but 3v3 pin from this board become VERY hot so I have it pull it ASAP. After couple attempts still same result. Hopefully someone could help me out of this one.

I bought it from http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9412

datasheet (http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Components/SMD/lpr5150al.pdf) says something over 1.23 V. but I'm sure there are people here that knows it better..

Guess not many people using this one.

By the way, where should I connect VREF?
