The ADXL371 is an ultra low power, 3-axis, ±200 g microelectromechanical system (MEMS) accelerometer that consumes 28 μA at a 2560 Hz output data rate (ODR). The ADXL371 does not power cycle its front end to achieve its low power operation and therefore does not run the risk of aliasing the output of the sensor.
In addition to its ultra low power consumption, the ADXL371 enables impact detection while providing system level power reduction. Two additional lower power modes with interrupt driven, wake-up features are available for monitoring motion during periods of inactivity. In wake-up mode, acceleration data can be averaged to obtain a low enough output noise to trigger on low g thresholds. In instant on mode, the ADXL371 consumes 1.7 μA while continuously monitoring the environment for impacts. When an impact event that exceeds the internally set threshold is detected, the device switches to normal operating mode fast enough to record the event.
High g applications tend to experience acceleration content over a wide range of frequencies. The ADXL371 includes a four-pole, low-pass antialiasing filter to attenuate out of band signals that are common in high g applications. The ADXL371 also incorporates a high-pass filter to eliminate initial and slow changing errors, such as ambient temperature drift.
The ADXL371 provides 12-bit output data at a 100 mg /LSB scale factor. The user can access configuration and data registers via the serial peripheral interface (SPI) or I2C protocol. The ADXL371 operates over a wide supply voltage range and is available in a 3 mm × 3.25 mm × 1.06 mm package.
- Impact and shock detection
- Asset health assessment
- Portable Internet of Things (IoT) edge nodes
- Concussion and head trauma detection
Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The EVAL-ADXL371Z is a simple evaluation board that allows quick evaluation of the performance of the ADXL371 ultralow power, 3-axis, digital output MEMS accelerometer. The EVAL-ADXL371Z is ideal for evaluation of the ADXL371 in an existing system because the stiffness and the small size of the evaluation board minimize the effect of the board on both the system and acceleration measurements.
For full specifications on the ADXL371, see the ADXL371 data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using this evaluation board.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
