Freescale FXOS8700 6-Axis Xtrinsic Sensor

Freescale FXOS8700 6-Axis Xtrinsic Sensor

Freescale's FXOS8700 6-Axis Xtrinsic Sensor with Integrated Linear Accelerometer and Magnetometer is a small, low-power 6-axis linear accelerometer and magnetometer combined into a single package. The device features a selectable digital I2C or SPI serial interface with 14-bit accelerometer and 16-bit magnetometer resolution along with smart-embedded functions. FXOS8700 has dynamically selectable acceleration full scales of ±2g/±4g/±8g and a fixed magnetic measurement range of ±1200μT. Output Data Rates (ODR) from 1.563Hz to 800Hz are selectable by the user for each sensor. Interleaved magnetic and acceleration data is available at ODR rates of up to 400Hz.

Features
  • 1.95V to 3.6V VDD supply voltage, 1.62V to 3.6 VDDIO voltage
  • ±2g/±4g/±8g dynamically selectable acceleration full-scale range
  • ±1200 μT magnetic sensor full-scale range
  • Output Data Rates (ODR) from 1.563 Hz to 800 Hz for each sensor, and up to 400 Hz when operated in hybrid mode with both sensors active
  • Low noise: < 150 μg/√Hz acceleration, < 1 μT rms magnetic
  • 14-bit resolution for acceleration measurements
  • 16-bit resolution for magnetic measurements
  • Footprint compatible with Xtrinsic MMA8451, 2, 3
  • Embedded programmable acceleration event functions:
  • Freefall and Motion Detection
  • Transient Detection
  • Vector-Magnitude Change Detection
  • Pulse and Tap Detection (Single and Double)
  • Orientation Detection (Portrait/Landscape)
  • Embedded programmable magnetic event functions:
  • Threshold Detection
  • Vector-Magnitude Change Detection
  • Autonomous Magnetic Min/Max Detection
  • Autonomous Hard
  • Iron Calibration
  • Programmable automatic ODR change using Auto-Wake and return to Sleep functions to save power. This function works with both magnetic and acceleration event interrupt sources.
  • 32-sample FIFO for acceleration data only
  • Integrated accelerometer and magnetometer self-test functions
Applications
  • eCompass in mobile devices
  • User interface (menu scrolling by orientation change, tap detection for button replacement)
  • Orientation detection (portrait/landscape: up/down, left/right, back/front position identification)
  • Augmented Reality (AR), gaming, and real-time activity analysis (pedometry, freefall and drop detection for hard disk drives and other devices)
  • Power management for mobile devices using inertial and magnetic event detection
  • Shock and vibration monitoring (mechatronic compensation, shipping and warranty usage logging)
