This module is an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) & is referred as DOF -Degrees of freedom.
3DOF is a simple 3 axis Accelerometer measuring orientation.(ADXL335) -
6DOF is 3 axis Accelerometer with 3 axis Gyroscope(measuring rotation) (ITG3200).
9DOF is along with magnetometer (compass).
Upto 11 DOF is available (with GPS).
