ADXL335:  Small, Low Power, 3-Axis ±3 g Accelerometer

Product Details

The ADXL335 is a small, thin, low power, complete 3-axis accelerometer with signal conditioned voltage outputs. The product measures acceleration with a minimum full-scale range of ±3 g. It can measure the static acceleration of gravity in tiltsensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion, shock, or vibration.

The user selects the bandwidth of the accelerometer using the CX, CY, and CZ capacitors at the XOUT, YOUT, and ZOUT pins. Bandwidths can be selected to suit the application, with a range of 0.5 Hz to 1600 Hz for X and Y axes, and a range of 0.5 Hz to 550 Hz for the Z axis.

The ADXL335 is available in a small, low profile, 4 mm × 4 mm × 1.45 mm, 16-lead, plastic lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP_LQ).

Precision Tilt/Fall Detector Consumes Less Than 1.5 mW
When you need to detect angular position related to Earth’s gravity, you can use an Analog Devices three-axis MEMS (microelectromechanical-system) accelerometer.

Human Fall Detection Using New MEMS Accelerometer Technology
For humans, an unobserved fall can have very serious consequences. Statistics show that the majority of serious consequences are not the direct result of falling, but rather are due to a delay in assistance and treatment. Post-fall consequences can be greatly reduced if relief personnel can be alerted in time.
