UPDATED – NEW PRODUCT! ADXL335 – 5V ready triple-axis accelerometer (+-3g analog out). We’ve updated our favorite triple-axis accelerometer to now have an on-board 3.3V regulator – making it a perfect choice for interfacing with a 5V microcontroller such as the Arduino. This breakout comes with 3 analog outputs for X, Y and Z axis measurements on a 0.75″x0.75″ breakout board. The ADXL335 is the latest and greatest from Analog Devices, known for their exceptional quality MEMS devices. The VCC takes up to 5V in and regulates it to 3.3V with an output pin. The analog outputs are ratiometric: that means that 0g measurement output is always at half of the 3.3V output (1.65V), -3g is at 0v and 3g is at 3.3V with full scaling in between.
Fully assembled and tested. Comes with 8 pin 0.1″ standard header in case you want to use it with a breadboard or perfboard. Two 2mm (0.08″) mounting holes for easy attachment.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Any chance of updating the product page with the value of Cx, Cy, and Cz? I think I researched this on your previous version and would guess you’re using the .1uF called out in the datasheet as generally acceptable but having a clear source would be nice. For those considering using this great little board, the size of these capacitors affects the maximum refresh rate. See the datasheet for details.
