Industry’s First Accelerometer with Built-In Noise Filtering

Kionix has recently announced the KX132-1211 and KX134-1211 discrete accelerometer sensors that include a built-in noise filtering function.

Advanced Data Path (ADP) technology allows noise filtering and sensor signal processing normally carried out by the MCU to be performed by the accelerometer. 

This means the board containing the Accelerometer does less work and uses less power. It also enables the sensing frequency and acceleration detection to have wide ranges of 8,500Hz and ±64g respectively making this device suitable for industrial applications.
