Is there some company that is making counterfeit accelerometers? I bought two cheap Pixhawks (2.4.8) and often got “accelerometers inconsistent” or “gyros inconsistent” errors. Fortunately, I work at a company that has surface-mount assembly capability, so I bought some new Invensense 6000 chips from Digi-Key and had the parts replaced.
Now, both Pixhawks work perfectly. No more errors!
So, I’m wondering if someone is producing lower-quality knockoffs and that is why the originals didn’t work as well. Or could it be that Invensense has different “grades” of parts, and a lower grade part was originally put on my boards.
Does anyone know the answer?
