Debuting as the company’s first family of accelerometers optimized for wearables, the MC3600 family of ultra-low power, high-performance three-axis accelerometers is built upon the company’s monolithic single-chip MEMS technology platform. Reportedly, this technology platform enables very small, single-chip MEMS+ASIC devices that are cost effective, while consuming very little power and offering very high performance. MC3600 accelerometers consume 0.6 µA of current, which is said to be three times less than comparable accelerometers. Additionally, they come in 2 mm x 2 mm packages. Featuring a small die size, the first commercially available device of the family is the MC3610 accelerometer. The device has a configurable sample rate that can be set between 0.4 to 200 samples/s at 8-, 10-, or 12-bit resolution with a 32-sample FIFO, or 14-bits for single samples.
