The ADXL362 is capable of measuring dynamic acceleration (resulting from motion or shock) as well as static acceleration (gravity). It provides 12-bit output resolution and has three operating ranges, ±2 g, ±4 g, and ±8 g. Additional useful features include an on-chip, 12-bit temperature sensor accurate to ±0.5°, motion triggered wake-up functionality, and and several activity detection modes which makes is ideal for portable low-power instruments.
The EVAL-ADXL362-ARDZ board has a large capacitor (C18) on the board which holds charge for the LCD screen. When power cycling the system, you must wait approximately 5 seconds to allow enough time for the capacitors on the EVAL-ADXL362-ARDZ board to fully discharge. This is a power requirement for the ADXL362, which notes in the datasheet that the power rail must come all the way back down to 0V before powering back up.
The EVAL-ADXL362-ARDZ Shield has four jumpers to increase flexibility when stacking systems together. Each jumper and it's purpose is described below.
Routes ADXL362 CS pin to P0.3/IRQ0/CS1
Routes ADXL362 CS pin to P0.4/RTS/IRQ1
Connects ADXL362 Interrupt pin 1 (INT1) to P1.0/IRQ3
Connects ADXL362 Interrupt pin 2 (INT2) to P1.0/IRQ3.
