The ADXL345 is a small, thin, ultralow power, 3-axis accelerometer
with high resolution (13-bit) measurement at up to ±16 g. Digital
output data is formatted as 16-bit twos complement and is acces-
sible through either a SPI (3- or 4-wire) or I2C digital interface.
The ADXL345 is well suited for mobile device applications. It
measures the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing appli-
cations, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion
or shock. Its high resolution (3.9 mg/LSB) enables measurement
of inclination changes less than 1.0°.
Several special sensing functions are provided. Activity and
inactivity sensing detect the presence or lack of motion by
comparing the acceleration on any axis with user-set thresholds.
Tap sensing detects single and double taps in any direction. Free-
fall sensing detects if the device is falling. These functions can
be mapped individually to either of two interrupt output pins.
An integrated memory management system with a 32-level first in,
first out (FIFO) buffer can be used to store data to minimize host
processor activity and lower overall system power consumption.
Low power modes enable intelligent motion-based power
management with threshold sensing and active acceleration
measurement at extremely low power dissipation.
The ADXL345 is supplied in a small, thin, 3 mm × 5 mm × 1 mm,
14-lead, plastic package.
