STMicroelectronics LIS2DW12 – ultra low-power high performance 3-axes femto accelerometer

The LIS2DW12 is an ultra-low-power highperformance three-axis linear accelerometer belonging to the “femto” family which leverages on the robust and mature manufacturing processes already used for the production of micromachined accelerometers.

The LIS2DW12 has user-selectable full scales of +-2g/+-4g/+-8g/+-16g and is capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates from 1.6 Hz to 1600 Hz.

The LIS2DW12 has an integrated 32-level first-in, first-out (FIFO) buffer allowing the user to store data in order to limit intervention by the host processor.

The embedded self-test capability allows the user to check the functioning of the sensor in the final application.

The LIS2DW12 has a dedicated internal engine to process motion and acceleration detection including free-fall, wakeup, highly configurable single/double-tap recognition, activity/inactivity, portrait/landscape detection and 6D/4D orientation.

The LIS2DW12 is available in a small thin plastic land grid array package (LGA) and it is guaranteed to operate over an extended temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C.
