It is an improved version of the ADXL210AQC/JQC. The ADXL210E will measure accelerations with a full-scale range of ± 10 g . The ADXL210E can measure both dynamic acceleration (e.g., vibra- tion) and static acceleration (e.g., gravity). The outputs are analog voltage or digital signals whose duty cycles (ratio of pulsewidth to period) are proportional to acceleration. The duty cycle outputs can be directly measured by a micro- processor counter without an A/D converter or glue logic. The duty cycle period is adjustable from 0.5 ms to 10 ms via a single resistor (R SET ). The typical noise floor is 200 g Hz , allowing signals below 2 m g (at 60 Hz bandwidth) to be resolved. The bandwidth of the accelerometer is set with capacitors C X and C Y at the X FILT and Y FILT pins. An analog output can be recon- structed by filtering the duty cycle output. The ADXL210E is available in a 5 mm 5 mm 2 mm 8-lead hermetic LCC package.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
