Accel 2 click carries ST’s LIS3DSH IC, a low-power factory-calibrated three-axis accelerometer which embeds a FIFO buffer and two programmable state machines. It allows you to implement gesture recognition. User-defined programs can distinguish movement patterns like shake and double shake, face up and face down, turn and double turn, and activate an interrupt upon their execution. You can also switch between I2C and SPI interfaces for communicating with the target board MCU (by soldering the onboard jumpers in the appropriate positions). Accel 2 click is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.

MEMS sensors or Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems are the sensors and actuators at the bare metal of embedded systems. MEMS are used for airbag systems, automatic door locks, security systems , earthquake detection, inkjet printers, kitchen appliances, and of course computer peripherals. In this blog we will explore the different ways you can use MEMS sensors.
