The MPU-6050 is the world’s first MotionTracking devices designed for the low power, low cost, and high-performance requirements of smartphones, tablets and wearable sensors.

The MPU-6050 devices combine a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die, together with an onboard Digital Motion Processor (DMP™), which processes complex 6-axis MotionFusion algorithms. The device can access external magnetometers or other sensors through an auxiliary master I²C bus, allowing the devices to gather a full set of sensor data without intervention from the system processor.

For precision tracking of both fast and slow motions, the parts feature a user-programmable gyro full-scale range of ±250, ±500, ±1000, and ±2000 °/sec (dps), and a user-programmable accelerometer full-scale range of ±2g, ±4g, ±8g, and ±16g. Additional features include an embedded temperature sensor and an on-chip oscillator with ±1% variation over the operating temperature range.

Features :

  1. Chip built-in 16bit AD converter, 16-bit data output.
  2. I2C Digital-output of 6 or 9-axis MotionFusion data in rotation matrix, quaternion, Euler Angle, or raw data format.
  3. Selectable Solder Jumpers on CLK, FSYNC, and AD0.
  4. Digital Motion Processing™ (DMP™) engine offloads complex MotionFusion, sensor timing synchronization, and gesture detection.
  5. Embedded algorithms for run-time bias and compass calibration. No user intervention required.
  6. Digital-output temperature sensor.


There are different types of MPU’s available in market; the basic differences between MPU6000, MPU6050 and MPU6500 is:

1. A sampling rate of 8 kHz.1. A sampling rate of 8 kHz.1. A sampling Rate of 32 kHz.
2. Supports SPI and I2C interface. But I2C is too slow to handle 8 kHz gyro update.2. Supports I2C interface communication protocol.2. Supports both I2C and SPI interface.
3. Vibration Sensitivity is better than MPU6500.3. Vibration Sensitivity is better than MPU6500 but the speed of operation is less than MPU6000.3. It is more susceptible to vibrations, so the need for some vibration isolation method.It is faster than both MPU.
