Sensor touts industry-first g-selectable capability

Freescale Semiconductor says it has developed the industry’s first three-axis, low-gravity (low-g), microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensor with a g-select feature. Designed for the portable consumer electronics market, the new MMA7260Q accelerometer is also said to provide a fast response time, low current consumption, low supply voltage and high sensitivity, all in a small package size.
