Keywords:MMA7660FC? detection orientation? configuration?

The MMA7660FC has the built-in capability to do orientation detection. This feature gives the customer the capability to do applications such as portrait/landscape in mobile phones/PMP/PDAs. The tilt orientation of the device is in three dimensions and is identified in its last known static position. This allows a product to set its display orientation appropriately to either portrait or landscape mode or to turn off the display when the device is placed upside down. The sensor provides six different positions: left, right, up, down, back and front.

This application note explains how to configure the MMA7660FC to do orientation detection given the desired sample rate or targeted power consumption.
