This 3-axis Accelerometer module is based on MMA7660FC with Digital Output I2C. This Module can be used for sensing data changes, product orientation, and gesture detection through an interrupt pin (INT).It is a very low power, low profile capacitive MEMS sensor.
What are Accelerometers?
Accelerometers are electromechanical devices that measure acceleration, the rate of change in velocity of an object. It uses axis-based motion sensing, as a way of detection. In this blog, I’ll be recommending the ADXL335 and ADXL356C accelerometers with a quick assessment of each through my buying guide.

What is Grove?
Grove makes it easier to connect, experiment, and simplify the prototyping process. No jumpers or soldering required. We have developed more than 300 Grove modules, covering a wide range of applications that can fulfill a variety of needs. Not only are these open hardware, but we also have open-source software.
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you the guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface – Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your use of the product.
