Accelerometers

Kionix capacitive accelerometers are fabricated from single-crystal silicon using our proprietary micromachining process. The silicon sensor element is hermetically sealed during wafer processing, enabling industry-standard packaging.

Kionix accelerometers feature high sensitivity, low noise, stable offset and sensitivity over temperature, and high shock survivability for a variety of consumer, automotive and industrial applications. Kionix low-g accelerometers can be used to achieve precise measurements of inclination (tilt). Motion sensing and drop-detection applications can be readily implemented with Kionix accelerometers featuring built-in algorithms and interrupt outputs.

Development Kits

The Kionix Accelerometer Application and Firmware Development Kit provides a simple environment to quickly begin the development of applications and firmware that incorporate Kionix accelerometers. The Development Kit provides a common interface to Kionix evaluation boards. The included software provides an easy-to-use interface for displaying and recording acceleration data. Plus, a graphical register map allows the user to see and change the contents of control registers.

The Silicon Labs development board allows the use of a standard 8051 microcontroller core and a USB interface for PC development/evaluation environments. Additionally, the F340 Adapter Board provides a visual indication (through an LED array) of interrupts (motion and tap) and screen rotation output states for Kionix products that include those functionalities.

Development Boards

The Kionix KX_94 Development Board provides developers and engineers with easy access to the capabilities of Kionix’s KXP94 and KXR94 series of tri-axis accelerometers. The development board creates a solid foundation for understanding motion, and enables quick and easy proof of concept. Also, with onboard battery, microprocessor, memory, crystal oscillator and plenty of breadboard space, it operates as a stand-alone development platform. Kit includes a Kionix KXP94-2050 or KXR94-2050 Tri-Axis Accelerometer, and a Texas Instruments MSP430F149 MCU.

The Texas Instruments MSP430F149 is a 16Bit RISC microprocessor with 2 Kbytes of ram and 60Kbytes of Flash Memory for program storage. It has an integrated 12Bit Sigma Delta Analog to Digital Converter with 8 Channels. It also has 2 Hardware USARTS for communications, and is low power at 1.8-3.6V and 250uA per MIPS. For more information refer to MSP430x14x Datasheet (SLAS272D) and MSP430x1xx User Guide (SLAU049C).

Demonstration Boards

To demonstrate and explore the capabilities of motion sensing with Kionix accelerometers, Kionix has created some demonstration boards. The demonstration boards provide a wired USB or a 2.4GHz wireless connection to a PC.  Basic software is also provided to acquire acceleration data from the boards.

Evaluation Boards

Evaluation BoardTo facilitate prototype work with Kionix accelerometers, Kionix has created evaluation boards for each accelerometer product. The evaluation boards provide access to the pins of the accelerometer, contain all of the appropriate decoupling capacitors and pull-up resistors, and allow for easy connection into a prototyping system.
