Freescale Xtrinsic Accelerometer Cube Demo

Table of contents

Have you ever wanted an easy method to add motion detection to your project?  Want to try out an accelerometer but don’t know how to interpret the data coming out?  Freescale has developed a simple module that allows you to do both by combining an accelerometer with a microcontroller and example code that easily gives you the data your looking for.image
Well, we're giving you the chance to get your hands on Freescale’s Accelerometer Cube (MMA9559LKUBE) featuring the MMA9559L intelligent motion sensing platform, a 3-axis accelerometer with an embedded ColdFire MCU, a battery and three color LEDs that blink different colors and rates depending on the cubes motion and orientation. Some of the features demonstrated by the MMA9559L intelligent motion sensing platform include: wake, sleep, motion recognition and orientation detection.
Sign up today to your chance to win one of these great new enabling devices.
  • 3-axis orientation detection
  • Freefall detection
  • High-g filter showing sustained acceleration
  • High-pass filter indicates a high rate of change of motion
  • Fast blinking LEDs indicates the Accelerometer Cube is moving
  • Slow blinking LEDs indicates the Accelerometer Cube is resting
  • BDM connector for customizing the firmware
  • Low-power sleep mode
  • On/off switch to save power
