Bus Pirate interfacing MMA8453Q accelerometer

Posted on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011 in Bus Pirate by Ian

m8051 dead-bugged a tiny QFN accelerometer on a dip breakout board and tested it with the Bus Pirate.

We were trying to work out the new Accelerometer MMA8453Q which is a I2C based 10 bit accelerometer.  Bus Pirate helped us to debug the issues and also talk to the MMA8453Q chip.

Thanks Boseji! Via the forum.
