P /* ADXL3xx Reads an Analog Devices ADXL3xx accelerometer and communicates the acceleration to the computer. The pins used are designed to be easily compatible with the breakout boards from Sparkfun, available from: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/categories.php?c=80 http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ADXL3xx The circuit: analog 0: accelerometer self test analog 1: z-axis analog 2: y-axis analog 3: x-axis analog 4: ground analog 5: vcc created 2 Jul 2008 by David A. Mellis modified 4 Sep 2010 by Tom Igoe This example code is in the public domain. */ * // these constants describe the pins. They won't change: const int groundpin = 18; // analog input pin 4 -- ground const int powerpin = 19; // analog input pin 5 -- voltage const int xpin = A3; // x-axis of the accelerometer const int ypin = A2; // y-axis const int zpin = A1;
