Description: Breakout board for the 3 axis ADXL335 from Analog Devices. This is the latest in a long, proven line of analog sensors - the holy grail of accelerometers. The ADXL335 is a triple axis MEMS accelerometer with extremely low noise and power consumption - only 320uA! The sensor has a full sensing range of +/-3g.
There is no on-board regulation, provided power should be between 1.8 and 3.6VDC.
Board comes fully assembled and tested with external components installed. The included 0.1uF capacitors set the bandwidth of each axis to 50Hz.

So the BOB is ideal for prototyping.

I live in California and this little unit along with an Arduino Pro Mini and an airplane servo motor is now an earthquake detector that locks down the pendulum of an antique clock at the first hint of a temblor. Works great.
Easy to use, analog output accelerometer. Sensitivity is orientation depended, check datasheet and experiment. Screwholes are nice.
This tiny board is easy to use, and comes with clear support from Sparkfun. If you need help, just go to the product page and all the information is available, from specifications, to typical wiring connections. This is a basic 3 axis design and can used with your 3 volt arduino projects.
this did exactly what was needed at 90,000 feet and beyond.
wasn’t potted, no conformal coatings… not sealed from the elements at all. operated properly from +75°F to -60°F and back in two hours without issue.
This is a great sensor! Sparkfun makes it easy to try new sensors out before adapting the technology to your PCB.
Great company - parts, service and Eagle CAD files.
Love this company! Great job guys and gals.
To calibrate low-G accelerometers, just use Earth’s gravity (1G) for each axis while the accelerometer is at rest. Make sure that each axis is perpendicular to the flat surface that you are using to calibrate the sensor.
