Ultra low-power high-performance three-axis digital output MEMS motion sensor
Test & Measurement
STMicroelectronics' LIS2HH12 MEMS digital output motion sensor is now
available from Mouser stock. Part of the company's Pico family, the device
is an ultra low-power high-performance three-axis linear accelerometer.
It has full scales of ±2g/±4g/±8g and is capable of measuring accelerations
with output data rates from 10Hz to 800Hz.
The device's self-test capability allows the user to check the functioning
of the sensor in the final application. The LIS2HH12 has an integrated
first-in, first-out (FIFO) buffer allowing the user to store data in order
to limit intervention by the host processor. The LIS2HH12 is available in a
compact low-profile plastic land grid array package (LGA) and it is
'guaranteed' to operate over an extended temperature range from -40C to
Applications include motion-controlled user interfaces, gaming and virtual
reality, pedometers, intelligent power saving for handheld devices, display
orientation, click / double-click recognition, impact recognition / logging,
vibration monitoring and compensation.
