Micro/sys Releases First Rugged StackableUSB™ Accelerometer Module with Analog & Digital I/O

For the first time, the rugged embedded world can incorporate an accelerometer into an embedded system with USB and still meet the reliability demands of rugged and harsh environments. The Micro/sys RoHS-compliant USB1600 is a tri-axial accelerometer solution which can be configured for sensing ranges from 1.5g – 200g making it the ideal solution for a wide range of motion sensing applications.

Simple software algorithms can be used in conjunction with the module to determine linear motion as well as rotational motion, eliminating the need for an expensive gyro. Furthermore, the USB1600 comes equipped with an RS232 level UART, SPI interface, I2C interface, and 20 pins that are user-configurable as analog input or digital I/O. All of these features are packed into a compact footprint measuring only 1.85" x 1.78", one-quarter the size of the 104™ Form Factor.
