High sensitivity Accelerometer Family
Freescale have introduced a new range of 3-axis accelerometers offering high sensitivity at low power consumption. According to Freescale the FXLN83xxQ family is capable of detecting acceleration information often missed by less accurate sensors commonly used in consumer products such as smartphones and exercise activity monitors.
In conjunction with appropriate software algorithms its improved sensitivity allows the new sensor to be used for equipment fault prognostication (for predictive maintenance), condition monitoring and medical tamper detection applications.
