Analog Devices have released a next-generation accelerometer designed for long-period monitoring of the
physical condition of high-value assets. With its extremely low power capabilities, the
micropower high-g MEMS accelerometer targets Internet of Things (IoT) solutions where shock and impact on a unit during
storage, transit, or use would adversely affect its function, safety, or reliability.
Typical target applications include materials inside shipping and storage containers, factory machinery, and
battery powered products where there may be lengthy quiet periods punctuated by spontaneous, severe impacts.
Unlike other comparable accelerometers in the market, this ultralow power MEMS sensor has an "instant on"
feature and can wake up immediately to acquire the entire waveform, this feature significantly reduces the
standby power drain of the sensor. The resulting low current requirement of less than two microamps while
waiting for an impact typically yields years of operation from a single small battery when the sensor is
used in a motion-activated system.
By using the
MEMS accelerometer as part of a remote edge-node device in an IoT application, transient
events can be captured and categorized by a localized processor beforehand by being sent to the cloud or other
data centre via a wireless link. Keeping the analysis localized further saves power, time, and prevents unnecessary
transfer of data for an event that is actually insignificant.
The wide bandwidth of 3200 Hz and dynamic range of ±200 g of the accelerometer make it an excellent fit for a
diverse set of asset health-monitoring applications including monitoring of concussions for indication of
Traumatic Brain Injury in both athletes and military personnel.

all of these devices feature both active and hibernate modes with ultralow power demands,
and target applications where power consumption, security, and robustness are key requirements.

MEMS accelerometer is supported by the
EVAL-ADXL372Z evaluation board.
This simple evaluation board allows quick evaluation of the performance of the
ultralow power, 3-axis, digital output MEMS accelerometer. The
is ideal for evaluation of the
in an existing system because the stiffness and the small size of the evaluation board minimize the effect of the board on both the
system and acceleration measurements.

STMicroelectronics are powering the next generation of Industry 4.0 applications with a new vibration-sensing solution optimized to enable smart maintenance of factory equipment. The IIS3DWB is a system-in-package MEMS sensor featuring a 3-axis digital vibration sensor with low noise over an ultra-wide and flat frequency range. The wide bandwidth, low noise, very stable and repeatable sensitivity, together with the capability of operating over an extended temperature range (up to +105 °C), make the device particularly suitable for vibration monitoring in industrial applications.
