Analog Devices Inc. ADXL356/ADXL357 3-Axis MEMS Accelerometers

Analog Devices ADXL356/ADXL357 3-Axis MEMS Accelerometers are analog (ADXL356) or digital output (ADXL357) MEMS accelerometers. These devices offer low noise density, low 0g offset drift, low power with selectable measurement ranges. The ADXL356B supports the ±10g and ±20g ranges, the ADXL356C supports the ±10g and ±40g ranges, and the ADXL357 supports the ±10.24g, ±20.48g, and ±40.96g ranges.
