3-axis accelerometer boasts industry’s smallest, most power efficient design

The MC3635 3-axis accelerometer from land grid array package comes in at 1.6 mm x 1.6 mm in size and consumes less than 0.9 µA of current at 25 MHz output data rate (ODR). A power wake mode consumes 0.3 µA at 1 Hz ODR and a new “sniff” mode (actuator detects no movement for a period of time) that consumes 0.4 µA at 6 Hz. The combination of small size and ultra-low power makes the device ideal for inclusion in “Internet of Moving Things” (IoMT) and wearables applications.
