The ADXL377 from Analog Devices Inc., Norwood, MA, is an analog, 3-axis, high-g MEMS accelerometer with a F.S. range of ±200 g with no signal saturation. Features include 300 µA typical current draw, 10,000 g shock survival, 1600 Hz bandwidth, simplified design and reduced board space requirement, and 1.8–3.6 V single-supply operation. The sensor can measure the acceleration of high-impact events resulting from shock and vibration, continuously capturing impact data. Applications include detection of concussive forces in contact sports and industrial shock monitoring.
