Here we have a breakout board for the fantastic ADXL345 chip. These TINY little boards are feature packed and very versatile.
Please note that the board does not have the header pins connected, but you will receive them, if you wish to solder them on. This makes for safer, cheaper postage as well as a more versatile package depending on how you would like to embed the board in your project.
The ADXL345 is a small, thin, low power, 3-axis accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) measurements at up to ± 16 g. Digital output data is formatted as 16-bit twos complement and is accessible through either a SPI (3- or 4-wire) or I2C digital interface.
The ADXL345 is well suited to measures the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion or shock. Its high resolution (4 mg/LSB) enables measurement of inclination changes less than 1.0° .
These functions can be mapped to one of two interrupt output pins. An integrated, patent pending 32-level first in, first out (FIFO) buffer can be used to store data to minimize host processor intervention.
Low power modes enable intelligent motion-based power management with threshold sensing and active acceleration measurement at extremely low power dissipation.
