MMA7455L is an inexpensive 3-axis accelerometer with adjustable measurement range of 2/4/8g. It can communicate with microcontrollers through an SPI or I2C interface.
This chip is only a few dollars in onesies, but it comes in a leadless LGA-14 package. It’s a challenging chip to solder, so we though a inexpensive breakout board might be useful.
What can you do with it? We’re using it to track hand motion with the USB POV Toy.
Check out the resources for this breakout:
Get the MMA7455L breakout board for $15 at Seeed Studio. That’s about $5 cheaper than other accelerometer breakouts we’ve seen recently.
