Freescale Semiconductor

The MMA7360L, MMA7340L, and MMA7330L triaxial accelerometers from Freescale Semiconductor Inc., Austin, TX, are suited for motion sensing in smart mobile devices. The devices feature zero-g detect for freefall protection, customer-selectable ranges (1.5 g/6 g for MMA7360L, 3 g/12 g for MMA7340L, and 4 g/16 g for the MMA7330L), 400 μA current draw, 3 μA draw in sleep mode, 2.2–3. V operation, self-test function, 1 ms power-up response time, and 0.5 enable response time. The devices can detect fall, tilt, motion, position, shock, and vibration for multiple portable applications and functions.
