Description: This is a Tri axis accelerometer board with Freescale's MMA7361L three-axis analog accelerometer with onboard low dropout linear voltage regulator and all required components as per datasheet. The sensor requires a very low amount of power and has a g-select input which switches the accelerometer between ±1.5g and ±6g measurement ranges. Other features include a sleep mode, signal conditioning, a 1-pole low pass filter, temperature compensation, self test, and 0g-detect which detects linear freefall. Zero-g offset and sensitivity are factory set and require no external devices.
This breadboard friendly board breaks out every pin of the MMA7361L to a 9-pin, 0.1" pitch header. The sensor works on power between 3.3V to 6VDC, yes offcourse 5V is inbetween !!. This wide power supply range helps you to use this module with ARM (3V3) based product as well as 5V Arduinos and PICs.All three axes have their own analog output with onboard low pass filter.
