NXP's LFSTBEB865x Sensor Toolbox development kit allows customers to quickly evaluate the two high performance 3-axis accelerometers with all the embedded features of previous solutions now in a 56% smaller form factor (2x2x1mm DFN package).

The Xtrinsic MMA8652FC (12-bit) and MMA8653FC (10-bit) low-power, low-noise accelerometers offer a wide range of performance for portable devices. At only 2 x 2 mm, they have a 56 percent smaller volume than previous NXP accelerometers, and with a 1 mm height are ideal for low-profile applications.

The MMA865xFC accelerometers have greatly optimized the overall system power consumption to be best in class. The MMA865xFC 3-axis accelerometers have six user configurable sample rates that can be set over a wide range from 1.5 to 800 samples per second. The operating current is proportional to the sample rate. The power scheme contains normal mode and low-power operational modes. FIFO allows for smarter system power management that contributes over 96 percent savings of the system power consumption when using the i.MX processor.

The development kit contains three PCBs: MMA8652FC and MMA8653FC accelerometer daughter cards and the sensor interface board. Customers who have not already purchased the LFSTBUSB communication board, can order this separately or order the full kit RDMMA865x that also contains the LFSTBUSB board.
