It is that time again! SparkFun Electronics will be closed Friday, January 13th for our annual inventory day. Please keep in mind that any orders placed after 2PM (Mountain Time) on Thursday, January 12th will not ship or be prepared for local pickup until we open for normal operations on Monday, January 16th. In addition, tours will resume on Friday, January 20th. Thank you for your patience!
This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale. This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious.
Description: Replacement: None. There is no direct replacement for this part, however we do carry a wide selection of dual-axis accelerometers in the accelerometer category. This page is for reference only.
These are the very popular ADXL series dual-axis accelerometers from Analog Devices. The ADXL is a solid state MEMS accelerometer with digital PWM or Analog output. The ADXL can measure both static and dynamic acceleration. This means the ADXL is suited well for sensing tilt (used in many Glove / Air Mouse applications) and for sensing brute acceleration (rocketry and general motion sensing applications).
Some ADXL sensors output Analog, some sensors output both Analog and PWM. Please refer to the current datasheet for your selected sensor for more information. PWM can be easier to interface to using very simple microcontrollers. Analog output sensor require a microcontroller that has an analog to digital converter (ADC).
