ADXL335 is 3v3 compatible device, it's powered by a 3.3v source and also generates 3.3v peak outputs. It has three outputs for each axis i.e. X, Y & Z. These are analog outputs and thus require an ADC in a micro-controller. Arduino solves this problem. We will be using the analog functions of Arduino.
Step 1: Parts Required
- Arduino-Any Arduino/clone will do but I have used Freeduino v1.16
- ADXL335 accelerometer
- Connecting wires(Relimates)
- USB cable for connecting Arduino with your Laptop
