What is an accelerometer?
The DE-ACCM2G2 is an off the shelf 2 axis 2g accelerometer solution with analog outputs. It features integrated op amp buffers for direct connection to a microcontroller's analog inputs, or for driving heavier loads.
To maximise usability, it is designed to fit in the DIP-14 form factor, making the DE-ACCM2G2 suitable for breadboarding, perfboarding, and insertion into standard chip sockets. To keep things as simple as possible, there are only 4 pins - two for power, and two for the X and Y analog outputs.
Additional circuitry ensures that the product won't be damaged by reversed power connections, and it has an onboard voltage regulator to allow operation from a wide range of inputs.
