Dual Axis Accelerometer Breakout Board ADXL321 18g.jpg

Breakout board for the dual axis ADXL32x accelerometers. Brings out the analog voltage levels from the X and Y axis to a standard .1" header. The ADXL320 can be powered from 2.4V-5.25V. The Self-Test pin can be used to verify sensor operation. Board comes fully assembled and tested with selected sensor and 0.1uF filtering capacitors. Installed Sensor: ADXL321 (+/- 18g) 18x18 mm (0.70x0.70"). Software: The ADXL32x outputs an analog voltage. This voltage is in ratio to the measured acceleration and to the supply voltage (ratiometric). You will need some extra hardware to convert this analog signal to a usable digital one. Luckily, many uCs have a built in Analog to Digital converter.
