Accelerometers

Digital Accelerometers utilize MEMS technology.

Measuring 2 x 2 mm, 3-axis Digital Accelerometers consume less than 10 Â-µA at sampling rate of 100 Hz. Units provide click and double-click recognition, motion-detection/wake-up, and 4D/6D orientation detection. Containing temperature sensor and 3 ADCs, devices integrate with companion chips, such as gyroscopes. Two programmable interrupt signals enable immediate notification of motion...
