Accelerometers measure linear acceleration. They can be also used for specific purposes such as inclination and vibration measurement. MEMS accelerometers embed several useful features for motion and acceleration detection, including free-fall, wakeup, single/double-tap recognition, activity/inactivity detection and 6D/4D orientation.
Our accelerometer portfolio
ST's state-of-the-art 3-axis MEMS accelerometers include analog and digital sensors featuring up to ±400g acceleration full scale and from 1.71 to 3.6 V supply voltage.
Ideal for low-power applications
ST's accelerometer sensors 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.
They are suitable for handheld portable applications such as mobile phones and PDAs, or any other application where low power consumption and reduced package size are required. The new generation of accelerometers, recently introduced by ST, makes a significant step forward in miniaturization, with packages sized only 2x2x1 mm, available with both 14 and 12-leads pinout.
For Automotive and Industrial applications
LIS2DTW12: Temperature sensor combined with a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer
The LIS2DTW12 is the first hybrid combo sensor of the T-Plus family. It is an accelerometer coupled with a precise temperature sensor to offer additional levels of integration.
Together: integrated solution for higher accuracy, lower power consumption
