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.

  • 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
  • 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)
