This is a LIS3LV02DL evaluation board. LIS3LV02DL is a digital output 3 axis accelerometer produced by ST Microelectronics. It is a low-cost and high-performance sensor produced in the MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) technology.

The measurement of the acceleration is made using the indirect method. The force causing acceleration in an inertial frame is acting upon the proof mass hanging on the springs. As in result, the proof mass is displaced from the point of balance. Displacement is measured as a variation of capacitance between the proof mass and the frame of the sensor. This displacement is proportional to the applied force to the sensor. The technology of capacitance sensing allows for manufacturing reliable, low noise and good performance MEMS accelerometers.

LIS3LV02DL are popular among laptop producers, as a part sensing free fall for magnetic hard-drives security. Drivers for Linux and android can be downloaded from ST website.

The LIS3LV02DL sensor has proven reliability and it is in production for over 10 years.
