Sparkfun’s present the latest smart and low power LIS3DH breakout sensor with 3 Degree of Freedom micro machined capacitive accelerometer sensor, which has got two way control option with I2C and SPI. Inertial Measurement Units (or IMUs) can provide additional space location data, such as gyroscopic or magnetometric. The device serves as a breakout board for the arduino board and operates at only 3.3 volt, so the extra input supply may damage the IC permanently.
The sensor is very much friendly with breadboard and needs few connecting wires to power and run the device. The sensor breakout also features the analog inputs for giving more leverage on the sensing side, also the movement detection ability adds the overall sensing unit to matches closely like smart phones sensors.
