The EVAL-ADXL345Z is a simple breakout board that enables easy connection of an ADXL345 into an existing system. The ADXL345 is a digital-output, 3-axis accelerometer whose low power consumption and built-in features make it ideal for use in a wide variety of applications. Due to its small size, the EVAL-ADXL345Z has minimal effect on performance of the system and of the accelerometer, and thus it is ideal for evaluation of the ADXL345 in an existing system. Note that the ADXL345 must be communicated with digitally via SPI or I2C. No processor is included with the EVAL-ADXL345Z; firmware must be supplied externally by the user. For evaluation boards that include a processor, please see the EVAL-ADXL345Z-M and the ADXL345Z-DB.
