Interface for MPU, ICM and BMI IMUs

I need to work with various drone IMU’s available in the market. They are MPU6000, MPU6050, MPU6500, MPU9250, ICM20602, ICM42688, ICM20948, ICM20649, ICM45686, ICM20689, and BMI270. The thing is these IMU’s for drones come in QFN millimeter dimension chip model and I don’t have necessary hardware to read the IMU data. Currently I have only Arduino UNO microcontroller. Can anyone suggest me some interconnects or adaptors to read the IMU data? Thanks.

Normally when one wants to play around with an IMU you would buy an available development board that has an easy to access 0.1 inch header connection commonly found in prototyping electronics. Here is an example for the MPU-6050 you mentioned.

Here’s a link to a number of evaluation boards for IMU applications, including some of the parts you mention as well as others you may not be aware of.
