I am designing a small 6-DOF IMU with digital outputs that uses the newest MEMs devices on the market (some of which haven't been released yet) to keep the footprint small and the cost low. I'm hoping to make a bunch of them and sell them at low margins so that DIY'ers like us can afford to tinker without breaking the bank. If they sell well enough, I'll be able to keep the cost on the order of $100 for the full 6-DOF with digital outputs. :-)
If you had the choice, what do you all think the "best" pinout would be?
My current design has two .1" headers mounted on opposite ends of the board, so that prototyping and mounting is easy.
Alternatively, I could add mounting holes, and then put little shrouded headers that you'd plug into; then, you wouldn't have to mount the IMU on a PCB - you could put it anywhere on the airframe.
Another option would be to use low-profile board-to-board connectors, but they wouldn't be easy to use (have really fine pitch).
What do you think?
