SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout - H3LIS331DL

The SparkFun H3LIS331DL Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout is a low-power, high-g accelerometer with I2C and SPI interface options. Though not necessarily good at detecting minute changes, the H3LIS331DL is great for grueling conditions that normal accelerometers aren’t suited for. With a shock survivability of 10000g and a handy sleep-to-wake function, the H3LIS331DL breakout makes the perfect board for shock and collision detection as well as impact recognition and logging.

This breakout offers an adjustable output range of 100, 200 or 400g, and an adjustable data rate of 0.5kHz to 1kHz. While normally operating at 2.16V–3.6V, the SparkFun H3LIS331DL Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout does feature a pretty impressive low-power mode with low-voltage compatible IOs at 1.8V with a power consumption rate of 10μA. Each pin has been broken out into breadboard-friendly 0.1" pins, and we’ve also added convenient mounting holes that allow you to attach the breakout to whatever ingenious project you can think up.

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
