Security & Chassis
ADI's Security and Chassis portfolio encompasses a variety of MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes designed for automotive applications. These sensors can be found in OEM car alarms, eCall systems, event data recorders, and active suspension systems. All of our automotive products are qualified to the strictest automotive guidelines to ensure highest reliability in the field.
The ADXL313 is a small, thin, low power, 3-axis accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) measurement up to ±4g. Digital output data is formatted as 16-bit twos complement and is accessible through either a serial port interface (SPI) (3-wire or 4-wire) or I2C digital interface.
The ADXL313 is well suited for car alarm or black box applications. It measures the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion or shock. Its high resolution (1024 LSB/g) and low noise (150 μg/√Hz) enable resolution of inclination changes of as little as 0.1°. A built-in FIFO facilitates using oversampling techniques to improve resolution to as little as 0.025° of inclination.
Several built-in sensing functions are provided. Activity and inactivity sensing detects the presence or absence of motion and whether the acceleration on any axis exceeds a user-set level. These functions can be mapped to interrupt output pins. An integrated 32-level FIFO can be used to store data to minimize host processor intervention, resulting in reduced system power consumption.
Low power modes enable intelligent motion-based power management with threshold sensing and active acceleration measurement at extremely low power dissipation.
The ADXL313 is supplied in a small, thin 5 mm × 5 mm × 1.45 mm, 32-lead LFCSP package and is pin compatible with the ADXL312 accelerometer device.

The ADXRS800 is an angular rate sensor (gyroscope) intended for automotive electronic stability control, vehicle rollover detection, and other high performance applications. An advanced, differential, quad-sensor design rejects the influence of linear acceleration, enabling the ADXRS800 to operate in exceedingly harsh environments where shock and vibration are present.
The ADXRS800 uses an internal, continuous self-test archi-tecture. The integrity of the electromechanical system is checked by applying a high frequency electrostatic force to the sense structure to generate a rate signal that can be differentiated from the baseband rate data and internally analyzed.
The ADXRS800 is capable of sensing an angular rate of up to ±300°/sec. Angular rate data is presented as a 16-bit word, as part of a 32-bit SPI message.
The ADXRS800 is available in a cavity plastic SOIC-16 and an SMT-compatible vertical mount package and is capable of operating across both a wide voltage range (3.3 V to 5 V) and temperature range (−40°C to 105°C).
