ArduIMU V3 ready for pre-order and check our new color!

Hi there! Finally you can pre-order the ArduIMU V3 here.. You can find more info abut it in my last post here

The final version of the board for full production is here, I'm expecting to start shipping them this Friday or Monday. 

We are still working on documentation and giving the final cosmetic touches to the example code to have it ready before you have one in your hands and at the same time we are shipping samples to developers to do a full DCM integration.


From now on our new color will purple! All our new products will feature a Lilypad style look! 


(Note: this is a stand-alone IMU, and is not designed to be a replacement for the "Oilpan" IMU shield of ArduPilot Mega.)

@Harry Lister, here's the pinout for the 6 pin ISP header on your programmer

Comment by Harry Lister on November 30, 2011 at 2:31pm

OK, thanks.  I also found the MKII pin assignments in the help on AVR Studio.  Then, one more question is the correct bootloader the same one used for Ardupilot that also uses the 328?

Comment by Jordi Muñoz on November 30, 2011 at 2:33pm

@Eric, Yes the AVR ISP MKII is a great programmer, is the one we use for everything. The bootloader files are inside the Arduino folder: "arduino-0022\hardware\arduino\bootloaders\ATmegaBOOT_168_atmega328.hex". Here is a good tutorial:  DON"T MOVE THE FUSES THEY ARE ALREADY SET and you MIGHT BRICK your board if you set something wrong. Just move the lock bits to protect the bootloader from being corrupted by accident during normal use, nothing will happen if you screw them... ;-)

unfortunately i got emailed and went to order one and they are out of stock again ! :(
not fun. also where do I hook up my airspeed sensor breakout board?

Thanks Harry that is good to know. Hopefully we can also get confirmation that we can use the arduino ide tools which would make life even easier.

okay so we got an answer from chris. yes arduino ide is okay to use for burning of the boot loader. no need to worry about bits and fuses. this means that visual studio users can also burn the boot loader using the tools menu

Harry, that's right the correct baud is 115200... What are you see there is the testing code we use to verify the sensors....

Final update on boot loader. I've had an email from 3dr store saying that they burn the boot loader for the "Arduino Pro Mini".

So to recap... We can burn the "Arduino Pro Mini" boot loader using arduino ide and an avr programer. The arduino ide sets the correct fises and/or bits

To clarify, as shipped, are these IMU's presently outputting "Sensor Fused" data? Looking at the output, both the accelerometer and gyro are incredibly stable, but the magnetometer is willing to drift when subjected to interference.

It seems like the magnetometer should share in the stability if it were fusing data with gyro output?
