High-Performance 3-Axis MotionTracking® Accelerometer

The ICM-42370-P is a high-performance 3-axis MEMS accelerometer. It targets consumer/industrial appliances, security camera and IoT applications that require low noise and high accuracy accel data with low power consumption. It features 16-bit ADC for high accel sensitivity and supports wide range of on-chip motion event/activity detection based on interrupt or register access without addition user programming.

The ICM-42370-P is in a 2.5 × 3 × 0.76 mm (14‑pin LGA) package which is pin compatible to standard 6-axis IMU footprint. This drop-in compatibility enables easy transition between 3-axis and 6-axis solution depends on different application requirements.

The device supports a VDD/VDDIO operating range of 1.71V to 3.6V. Other features include configurable host interface that supports I3C℠, I²C, and SPI serial communication, up to 2.25 Kbytes FIFO and 2 programmable interrupts with ultra-low-power wake-on-motion support to minimize system power consumption.
