Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout - LIS2DH12 (Qwiic)

Description of product


Qwiic has struck again! This MEMS, three axis accelerometer by STMicroelectronics has been outfitted to communicate over Qwiic. The LIS2DH12 is an ultra-low-power highperformance three-axis linear accelerometer belonging to the “femto” family with digital I2C/SPI serial interface standard output.

The LIS2DH12 has user-selectable full scales of ±2g/±4g/±8g/±16g and is capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates from 1 Hz to 5.3 kHz. The accelerometer features ultra-low power consumption down to as low as 2 uA, and a supply voltage ranging from 1.71 V to 3.6 V.

The SparkFun LIS2DH12 Arduino Library library which allows the user to easily modify the gravity scale, enable/disable the shake control, toggle between operating modes, etc. The LIS2DH12 comes in a small thin plastic land grid array package (LGA) and is guaranteed to operate over an extended temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C.
