The LIS2DW12 has user-selectable full scales of ±2g, ±4g, ±8g or ±16g, and is capable of measuring acceleration at output data rates from 1.6Hz to 1.6kHz.
The LIS2DW12 has an integrated 32-level First-In, First-Out (FIFO) buffer allowing the user to store data in order to limit the requirement for intervention by a host processor. An embedded self-test capability enables the user to check the functioning of the sensor in the final application.
The LIS2DW12 has a dedicated internal engine which can perform motion- and acceleration-detection functions including free-fall, wake-up, single- or double- tap recognition, activity/ inactivity detection, portrait/ landscape detection and 6D/4D orientation.
The LIS2DW12 is available in a small thin plastic LGA package measuring 2mm x 2mm x 0.7mm. It is guaranteed to operate over an extended temperature range from -40°C to 85°C.
