Here’s another app note (PDF) from Kionix on their tri-axis accelerometer applications. An earlier set-up was used in the application note’s experiment.

This application note describes how to use a Kionix MEMS tri-axis accelerometer as a free-fall sensor for drop force modeling applications. Required theory, equations, and sample event signatures are provided with this note as guidelines for characterizing drop force models.

  • gant: They still have a couple of the more expensive (but still considerably cheap) 5S-I-S01 in stock...
  • readybrek: Anyone got a any recommendations for a budget-priced hot air station?
  • William: lol I'm happy to waste 3c for each program/debug cycle... but probably not the time spent soldering a new device down to a proto board!...
  • Joe Desbonnet: Ya, I can recommend the low melting point solder. I used brand 'ChipQuik' and it's amazingly easy to use.
