What is it?

The LIS2DTW12 is an ultra-low-power high-performance three-axis linear accelerometer and temperature sensor.


What problem does it solve?

It detects motion and acceleration such as free-fall, wakeup, highly configurable single/double-tap recognition, activity/inactivity, stationary/motion detection, portrait/landscape detection and 6D/4D orientation.


What are the features and benefits?
  • Ultra-low power consumption: 50 nA in power-down mode, below 1 μA in active low-power mode
  • Very low noise: down to 1.3 mg RMS in low-power mode
  • 0.8 °C (typ. accuracy) embedded temperature sensor


What are the focus applications/markets?
  • Fragile shipment tracking
  • Motion and temperature monitoring in battery-powered devices
  • Gesture recognition and gaming
  • Motion-activated functions and user interfaces
  • Display orientation
  • Tap/double-tap recognition
  • Free-fall detection
  • Smart power saving for handheld devices
  • Hearing aids
  • Portable healthcare devices
  • Wireless sensor nodes
  • Motion-enabled metering devices
