Accelerometers

Need for speed: accelerometers

Bosch Sensortec has specifically designed the 3-axis accelerometer family for low-power applications optimized for devices such as smartphones and wearables. Accelerometers measure the change of linear motion by applying the sensing principle of capacitive detection. All accelerometers are available in small and thin LGA packages. The interrupt feature of the sensors offers an additional special advantage for mobile applications such as a battery saving mode or free-fall detection. The sensing principle of all MEMS sensors in this category is capacitive detection.
