NXP FXAS21002 Element
The FXAS21002 element is used to measure the hardware’s orientation and angular velocity. This element is for using the NXP FXAS21002 three-axis digital gyroscope and angular sensor.
The FXAS21002 is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Elementbutton located in the toolbox from Embedded View. NXP Rapid IoT projects have this element imported by default.
The following properties can be changed for the FXAS21002 element:
The name of the element.
I2C Driver Instance
The I2C bus used to communicate with the sensor.
The I2C address the element sends data to.
The rate the sensor wakes up to sample data. The sampling rate options include:
- 12.5 Hz (default)
- 25 Hz
- 50 Hz
- 100 Hz
- 200 Hz
- 400 Hz
- 800 Hz
The following triggers are available to execute events from within the FXAS21002 element:
Execute an event when the source element connected to the FXAS21002 triggers.
Sensor Data Read
Execute an event when the sensor’s data is read.
X Rotation Speed Read (DPS)
Execute an event when the sensor’s x-axis rotation speed (in DPS) is read.
Y Rotation Speed Read (DPS)
Execute an event when the sensor’s y-axis rotation speed is read.
Z Rotation Speed Read (DPS)
Execute an event when the sensor’s z-axis rotation speed is read.
The following abilities are available for the FXAS21002 element when its source element triggers:
