The LIS352AX is the new small size, low-power
three-axis linear accelerometer that includes a
sensing element and an IC interface able to
provide an absolute analog signal to the external
The IC interface is manufactured using a CMOS
process that allows high level of integration to
design a dedicated circuit which is trimmed to
better match the sensing element characteristics.
The LIS352AX has a full scale of ±2g and it is
capable of measuring accelerations over a
maximum bandwidth of 2.0 kHz. The device
bandwidth may be reduced by using external
The self-test capability allows the user to check
the functioning of the system.
An embedded multiplexer allows to redirect the
analog outputs onto a single pin for operation with
a single channel A/D converter.
ST is already in the field with several hundreds
million sensors with excellent acceptance from
the market in terms of quality, reliability and
The LIS352AX is provided in plastic land grid
array (LGA) package.
Several years ago ST pioneered successfully the
usage of this package for accelerometers. Today
ST has the widest manufacturing capability and
strongest expertise in the world for production of
sensor in plastic LGA package.
