LSM6DSL click

LSM6DSL click measures linear and angular velocity with six degrees of freedom. It carries the LSM6DSL high-performance 3-axis digital accelerometer and 3-axis digital gyroscope. The click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. LSM6DSL click communicates with the target microcontroller over SPI or I2C interface, with additional functionality provided by the INT pin on the mikroBUS™ line.

Accelerometers and gyroscopes

As the name indicates, an accelerometer measures acceleration, or in simple terms, how fast an object is moving. Accelerometers can be used to sense motion. And gyroscopes on the other hand measure how fast something is spinning about an axis.
