Board Supports Popular Accelerometers

Kionix unveils the Accel 7 tri-axis acceleration sensing Click board powered by its KXTJ3-1057 14-bit tri-axis digital accelerometer. Accel 7 click supports a wide range of applications such as motion detection, display orientation, HID, drop detection (for warranty logging), and similar applications that rely on acceleration and motion-sensing.


The Pedometer 3 click is a tri-axis acceleration sensing Click board utilizing the KX126-1063. The sensor includes an embedded pedometer algorithm. The MEMS sensor itself is based on the principle of measuring the differential capacitance via a proprietary ASIC that decreases errors due to manufacturing imperfections, temperature, and other environmental influences. The KX126-1063 includes engines that enable pedometer functionality with programmable sensing thresholds and step detection, Directional Tap/Double-Tap detection, advanced orientation detection, and free fall detection. It also includes motion monitoring functionality, including wake-up on motion and back-to-sleep functionality with programmable thresholds.
