Kionix's KX022 is a low-power, I2C/SPI, 3-axis accelerometer with integrated FIFO/FILO buffer

The KX022 features a wide range of embedded functionality, including tap detection, orientation, activity, and wake-up algorithms. Kionix's XAC sensor also provides stability with a combination of improved shock, reflow, and thermal performance. The KX022 offers low current consumption in all modes and accelerometer outputs with 16-bit resolution for greater precision. User-selectable parameters include ± 2g, 4g, or 8g ranges and Output Data Rates (ODR) with programmable high and low-pass filters. It is packaged in an ultra-small, 12-pin, 2 x2 x 0.9 mm LGA plastic package.

Applications include smartphones/mobile devices, laptops, gaming/virtual reality, and health and fitness.
