Not a real datasheet, but everything you need to know for implementing the Serial ADXL PCB into your project. Includes the PCB layout, firmware, and discussions on sensor sensitivity.
Besides liking that word, we really enjoy flying our gliders. We decided to use the new ADXL sensors we put together in connection with a wireless transmitter. Foamware is what came out.
On the third Thursday of every month, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science hosts an evening event for adults in the area called, Science Lounge. Their programming features live entertainment, demonstrations, hands-on demos, and an evening filled with science, education, and exploration! Each month features a different theme. For April, the Science Lounge theme was “Electrify!” What a perfect match for us here at SparkFun!
