Note: Gravity: Triple Axis Accelerometer - FXLN8361 (±8g) is discontinued now.
3-Axis acceleration sensor is electronic equipment that could measure the acceleration during the object's motion. It could help you to analyze the target motion position or direction. The typical interactive application could be posture recognition and action recognition, such as WII game applications. These video game devices are all using an internal acceleration sensor, calculate the current motion direction by conversion algorithm. And most of the recent smart devices are based on the same theory, like Misfit, Microsoft band .etc.
FXLN83XXQR1 series is a low power consumption with a high precision sensor. The highest bandwidth could arrive 2.7kHz. And analog output could be compatible with most MCU. It is well suited to measures the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion or shock.
The new FXLN8361 accelerometer sensor provides two measurement range: ±2g/±8g. You could select your range according to your application.
