Low Power ±2g Dual Axis Accelerometer

  • Fully Integrated I2C Thermal Accelerometer
  • X,Y Axis, 8 bit, Acceleration AD Output (± 2g)
  • Absolute 0G Offset Less Than ±50mg
  • 4-position Orientation Detection
  • Shake Detection with Interrupt
  • Programmable Shake Direction Detection and Threshold


The MEMSIC Digital Thermal Orientation Sensor (DTOS) is the world's first fully-integrated orientation sensor.

Its operation is based on our patented MEMS-thermal technology and is built using a standard 0.18um CMOS process. DTOS contains no moving parts and thus eliminates field-reliability and repeatability issues associated with competitive products. It also eliminates the "click" sounds typically heard in ball-based orientation sensors.
DTOS detects four orientations, shake and shake direction. In addition, it provides X,Y axis acceleration signals with very low 0g offset. An I2C interface is used to communicate with this device and an interrupt pin (INT) is provided for shake and orientation. The DTOS also has a power-down enabled through the I2C interface.


This is a general purpose I²C device compatible with all computing platforms and IoT technologies, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Particle, BridgeX5, and many more.  All ControlEverything.com devices support a strict +5V I²C Bus standard.

Mini Modules

Our mini modules provide a standardized footprint to simplify the design of your project, and allow for a smaller form factor without sacrificing the plug-and-play  ease of use that our product line affords.

All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient quick connect 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.

Pull-up resistors are included with all ControlEverything.com master devices. If you are wiring in your own I²C port, on-board 4.7K jumper-selectable pull-up resistors are available for convenience purposes.

All mini modules are 50.8 x 31.75 mm.
