Description: Bosch's BMA180 is a three-axis, ultra-high performance digital accelerometer, which provides a digital 14-bit output via either a 4-wire SPI or a 2-wire I2C interface. The full-scale measurement range can be set to ±1g, 1.5g, 2g, 3g, 4g, 8g or 16g. Other features include programmable wake-up, low-g and high-g detection, tap sensing, slope detection, and self-test capability. The sensor also has two operating modes: low-noise and low-power.
The BMA180 comes in a tiny 3x3mm 12-pin LGA package. The sensor can be powered between 1.62 and 3.6V for VDD and 1.2 to 3.6V for VDDIO, and will typically only consume 650uA in standard mode.
A breakout board is available for the BMA180 here.
