The Great Search: High G Accelerometer Replacement for ADXL377 #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey
We carry all sorts of accelerometers in the Adafruit shop – for many folks, a +-2/4/8/16 or even 32g accelerometer is good enough for detecting motion and tilt. For some rocketry and robotics applications, there’s +-100 and +-200g accelerometers available!
Sadly, today we learned that the ADXL377 is no longer going to be made due to the process being retired. Let’s try to find a replacement!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
