TILT n SHAKE Click Board
IC Module: MMA8491Q IC
The 3-axis multifunction digital accelerometer comes in a small package. It can be used in two accelerometer configurations, either as a 45° tilt sensor or as a digital output accelerometer with I2C interface. Ideal for tamper detect, anti-theft and remote control devices, the TILT-n-SHAKE click device can operate in a wide voltage range with fast data output time (~700 μs).
As a 45-degree Tilt Sensor
The MMA8491Q device is extremely easy to implement by using a single line output per axis. Once it reaches the 45° tilt angle, depending on the direction it leans to, this click board outputs either a Xout, Zout or Yout signal—all through the same interrupt pin. Three onboard LEDs will also signal the tilt orientation.
As Digital Output AccelerometerThe TILT-n-SHAKE click can be used as a 3-axis digital accelerometer that offers a 14-bit digital output with a ±8g full-scale range, which can be read from the device with a 1 mg/LSB sensitivity.
