STMicroelectronics' LIS2HH12 MEMS Digital Output Motion Sensor is an ultra-low-power high-performance three-axis linear accelerometer belonging to the "pico" family. It has full scales of ±2g/±4g/±8g and is capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates from 10Hz to 800Hz. The self-test capability allows the user to check the functioning of the sensor in the final application. The LIS2HH12 has an integrated first-in, first-out (FIFO) buffer allowing the user to store data in order to limit intervention by the host processor. The LIS2HH12 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.
