MMA8451 Triple-Axis Accelerometer

MMA8451 Triple-Axis Accelerometer ±2/4/8g @ 14-bit

Adafruit Industries LLC

The MMA8451 is a miniature accelerometer from Freescale. It's designed for use in phones, tablets, smart watches, and more, but works just as well in an Arduino project. Of the MMA8451/MMA8452/MMA8453 family, the MMA8451 is the most precise with a built in 14-bit ADC. The accelerometer also has built in tilt/orientation detection so it can tell you whether your project is being held in landscape or portrait mode, and whether it is tilted forward or back. This sensor communicates over I²C so you can share it with a bunch of other sensors on the same two I²C pins. There's an address selection pin so you can have accelerometers share an I²C bus.
