"@Tom HW specifies at room temperature too as do most vendors, and most vendors (Invensense,et al) have a "percent sensitivity change vs temperature" error correction; same difference as HW's stated value at operating…"
"@Rafael, The difference is one is an AHRS IMU and the other are discrete sensors.. Regarding Pixhawk vs HGxxxx the difference is one is a purpose built AHRS IMU device; the Honeywell IMU, The other (Pixhawk,et al) is a controller that does its own…"
""one of the reasons that the Pixhawk autopilot has been so successful has been the remarkably low noise level of the MPU6000s." ... Well probably actually because the software/hardware is adequate to do the job and is CHEAP at <…"
"Like Windows Vista the MPU9250 is obsolete as is the Pixhawk.

FYI MIMO means Multiple Input Multiple Output. I.e., can transmit/receive on three channels (streams) concurrently.
"Yeah. the use of diodes for this is arcane; even multiplexing 5V power inputs as in the PixHawk. Note that if the diodes are properly rated, they won't "burn". Simply put, simple use of a few of today's high power, low cost…"
"Well here is a teaser (you are the first to see it here):
