On my continuing mission to take apart HiTechnic sensors and show you guys their guts, I present to you: The Gyro. The little yellow/gold component on the right of the PCB is the actual gyro chip, the rest of the components most likely to deal with power conditioning. There’s not a whole lot to tell about this board since there’s not a lot to it. The other side of this board is completely bare apart from some writing, a couple of vias and the connector, of course.
