KAmodMMA8451Q is a module with the NXP MMA8451Q triaxial accelerometer. The board is equipped with a Pmod I2C standard connector and a KAMAMI connector, that allows easy connection of the module to the evaluation kits. Due to its small dimensions, the product can be used in many development projects, while the Pmod loop connector allows to connect the boards in the series.

I2C bus lines

The KAmodMMA8451Q module is equipped with jumpers allowing to connect pull-up resistors to the positive power pole to the I2C bus line. The jumpers give the possibility of independent enabled of the pull-up for the SDA and SCL lines.

Interrupt line INT2

The KAmodMMA8451Q module has been equipped with a jumper enabling connection of the INT2 interrupt output line to the Pmod compatible connector. Thanks to the possibility of disconnecting the MMA8451Q interrupt line from Pmod connectors, the user does not have to worry about the consequences of possible conflicts resulting from the connection of Pmod-compatible module modules with different logic states.

I2C address

The KAmodMMA8451Q module has been equipped with the function of selecting one of the two I2C bus addresses for the MMA8451Q chip. The jumper "Addr. 0x" in position "1D" causes that the integrated circuit will be represented by bus address 0x1D (HEX), and in position "1C" - 0x1C (HEX).
