Got the gyro/accelerometer today.As I already have a few Propeller chips(SIP40 modules, but OK for testing), all I need now is a few resistors and capacitors.
They are on order from a local supplier as Sparkfun doesn't seem to sell 0805-size SMT components.(They're a pain to solder but it's necessary to shorten signal paths. The recommendation is 0603-size components, but as I'm not that much of an masochist...)
Until they arrive, I'll just occupy my time doodling PCBs...
