ST’s 2-in-1, accelerometer with built-in absolute thermometer is the new wave of evolution

The LIS2DTW12 is the first Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) in the industry to embark both an accelerometer and an absolute thermometer. Until today, designers had to use two different devices if they wanted to sense motion and temperature, which increased costs and complexity. Moreover, despite the additional sensing element, the LIS2DTW12 is still part of our “femto” family of low-power devices, which means that it uses as little as 50 nA in power-down mode and only 1 µA in low-power mode. The packaging is also identical to the more traditional LIS2DW12 at just 2 mm x 2 mm x 0.7 mm, meaning that the additional sensor does not necessitate a compromise in power consumption or size, making the LIS2DTW12 an even more attractive proposition.
