ADXL180 - Accelerometer
The ADXL180 iMEMS accelerometer is a configurable, single axis, integrated satellite sensor that enables easy solutions for front or side impact sensing applications. Acceleration data is sent to the control module via a digital 2-wire current loop interface bus. The communication protocol is programmable for compatibility with various automotive interface bus standards.
The sensor g range is configurable to provide full-scale ranges from ±50 g to ±500 g. The 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) allows either 8-bit or 10-bit acceleration data to be transmitted to the control module.
