Ultra low-power high-performance three-axis digital output MEMS motion sensor

08-01-2015 | Mouser Electronics | 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 +85C. 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.
