ST's state-of-the-art MEMS accelerometers include analog and digital sensors featuring up to ±400g acceleration full scale and from 1.71 to 3.6 V supply voltage.
Accelerometers have advanced power-saving features that make them the ideal choice for ultra-low-power applications. These features include low-power mode, auto wake-up function and FIFO buffer that can be used to store data, thus reducing the host processor loading and system power consumption.
The small size and embedded features of ST’s accelerometers make them an ideal choice for handheld portable applications such as cell phones and PDAs, or any other application where reduced package size and low power consumption are required.
ST’s portfolio also includes accelerometers for automotive applications, such as the AIS32x family, with extended temperature range and AEC-Q100 qualified.
The LIS3DSH is an ultra-low-power high-performance 3-axis linear accelerometer with two embedded finite-state machines. These programmable blocks allow the user to implement customized motion-detection based applications with a high level of flexibility, working autonomously, so reducing the microprocessor workload by moving programming functionality inside the sensor. In this way, the two embedded finite state machines can be programmed independently for motion detection.
