STMicroelectronics 3-Axis LIS3DH Accelerometer

STMicroelectronics introduced the LIS3DH 3-axis digital-output accelerometer. The ST LIS3DH features low power consumption (over 90% lower than other solutions), miniature footprint, and enhanced functionality. The LIS3DH accelerometer is ideal for motion-sensing features and applications in space- and power-constrained consumer devices, such as mobile phones, remotes and game controllers. Volume production is scheduled for early Q3 2010 and the unit price is $0.85 in quantities of 100,000 pieces.
