E-Blocks Motion Sensor Board, 3-Axis Accelerometer US$102.00

E-Blocks Motion Sensor Board, 3-Axis Accelerometer

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/FPGA architectures.

The E-blocks Motion Sensor Board features an LIS3LV02DQ 3-axis acceleration sensor capable of sensing acceleration at 2g or 6g scales. The board can be used to measure G forces or can be used to measure orientation in terms of pan/tilt and roll. A few typical applications for the board include force meters, balancing robotics, calibration tools and digital spirit levels. The motion sensor board connects to your upstream E-block board using the standard D-type connector.

You may want to connect via an EB634 E-blocks extender cable for situations in which you want the forces to be applied to the motion sensor only and not to the rest of your E-blocks system.

Motion Sensor Board Features

  • LIS3LV02DQ three-axis accelerometer, I2C communication
  • Good for game development
  • Compatible with both 3.3V and 5V upstream E-blocks
  • Flowcode macros available
The module is powered using one of the output pins from the microcontroller. This allows the module to be powered down when the accelerometer is not in use. This also means that you do not need a flying lead connected to the board as with most standard E-block boards.

The board's patch/jumper system allows you to route the signals to different pins on the downstream E-blocks connector, or to individual female pin headers.

E-blocks Overview

E-blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-blocks that need it.

Processing E-blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers, Altera FPGAs, Arduino or Raspberry Pi control the whole E-blocks system. Processing E-blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
