Hey everyone! Here is a new exciting project that has just been realized by Papilio user Laurent Siou, he has successfully made a 3-Axis IMU with a Papilio One 250k board!!
Laurent’s goal was to realize an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) for a camera and take in-flight stabilized videos. His particular design is comprised of :
- Papilio One 250K board
- ITG-3200 eval board
- BMA180 accelerometer
- HMC5883L magnetometer
And to make all that work Laurent used the AVR8 core 1.6.0 with Arduino IDE and he modified the soft core to add:[checklist]
- 3-axis servo control IP adapted from timer section
- I2C IP adapted from Generic WB hard Master I2C
- Some VHDL cleanup and glue
Watch this video below to have a look at the end result and hopefully you will find this project as cool as I do!!
Feel free to discuss in the comments thread.
