Analog Accelerometers Bulk Up For Industrial Challenges

The KX220 family of medium-g, tri-axis analog accelerometers are available in two versions: the KX220-1071 and the KX220-1072, providing ±20g and ±40g ranges respectively.  Maximum supported bandwidths range from 4.5 kHz to 8 kHz.  Both sensors integrate self-test functions, consume 0.25 mA at 3.3V and come in 10-pin, 3mm x 3mm LGA packages. Samples are available now. For more details and specs, contact Kionix.
