3-Axis, ±200 g Digital Accelerometer Evaluation Board
PLEASE SEE THE LAST PAGE FOR AN IMPORTANT
WARNING AND LEGAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Rev. 0 | Page 1 of 2
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The E VA L -ADXL375Z is a simple evaluation board that allows
quick evaluation of the performance of the ADXL375 3-axis
digital accelerometer. The EVAL -ADXL375Z has two sets of
0.1 inch spaced vias, for population of a 4-pin and 5-pin header,
for access to all power and signal lines. The vias or headers
allow the evaluation board to be attached to a prototyping
board (breadboard) or attached to the PCB in an existing
system. Four holes are provided for mechanical attachment
of the E VA L -ADXL375Z to the application. An external host
processor is required for communication to the part.
The dimensions of the EVA L -ADXL375Z are 20 mm × 20 mm
with mounting holes set 15 mm × 15 mm at the corners of the
printed circuit board (PCB).
CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
The schematic of the E VA L -ADXL375Z is shown in Figure 2.
See the ADXL375 data sheet for configuration of the
accelerometer after it is connected to the application host
processor.
The PCB layout of the E VA L -ADXL375Z is shown in Figure 1.
The E VA L -ADXL375Z has three factory installed capacitors for
bypass: two 100 nF capacitors and a 10 μF capacitor. C1 and C2
are VS bypass capacitors to reduce analog supply noise and C3,
located between VDD I/O and GND, is provided to reduce digital
clocking noise.
HANDLING CONSIDERATIONS
The E VA L -ADXL375Z is not reverse polarity protected. Reversing
the VS or VDD I/O supply and GND pins can cause damage to the
ADXL375.
Dropping the E VA L-ADXL375Z on a hard surface can generate
several thousand g’s of acceleration, which may exceed the data
sheet absolute maximum limits. See the ADXL375 data sheet
for more information.

NOTES
ESD Caution
ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive device. Charged devices and circuit boards can discharge without detection. Although this product features patented or proprietary protection
circuitry, damage may occur on devices subjected to high energy ESD. Therefore, proper ESD precautions should be taken to avoid performance degradation or loss of functionality.
Legal Terms and Conditions
By using the evaluation board discussed herein (together with any tools, components documentation or support materials, the “Evaluation Board”), you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions
set forth below (“Agreement”) unless you have purchased the Evaluation Board, in which case the Analog Devices Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale shall govern. Do not use the Evaluation Board until you
have read and agreed to the Agreement. Your use of the Evaluation Board shall signify your acceptance of the Agreement. This Agreement is made by and between you (“Customer”) and Analog Devices, Inc.
(“ADI”), with its principal place of business at One Technology Way, Norwood, MA 02062, USA. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, ADI hereby grants to Customer a free, limited, personal,
temporary, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to use the Evaluation Board FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY. Customer understands and agrees that the Evaluation Board is provided
for the sole and exclusive purpose referenced above, and agrees not to use the Evaluation Board for any other purpose. Furthermore, the license granted is expressly made subject to the following additional
limitations: Customer shall not (i) rent, lease, display, sell, transfer, assign, sublicense, or distribute the Evaluation Board; and (ii) permit any Third Party to access the Evaluation Board. As used herein, the term
“Third Party includes any entity other than ADI, Customer, their employees, affiliates and in-house consultants. The Evaluation Board is NOT sold to Customer; all rights not expressly granted herein, including
ownership of the Evaluation Board, are reserved by ADI. CONFIDENTIALITY. This Agreement and the Evaluation Board shall all be considered the confidential and proprietary information of ADI. Customer may
not disclose or transfer any portion of the Evaluation Board to any other party for any reason. Upon discontinuation of use of the Evaluation Board or termination of this Agreement, Customer agrees to
promptly return the Evaluation Board to ADI. ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS. Customer may not disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer chips on the Evaluation Board. Customer shall inform ADI of any
occurred damages or any modifications or alterations it makes to the Evaluation Board, including but not limited to soldering or any other activity that affects the material content of the Evaluation Board.
Modifications to the Evaluation Board must comply with applicable law, including but not limited to the RoHS Directive. TERMINATION. ADI may terminate this Agreement at any time upon giving written notice
to Customer. Customer agrees to return to ADI the Evaluation Board at that time. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. THE EVALUATION BOARD PROVIDED HEREUNDER IS PROVIDED AS IS” AND ADI MAKES NO
WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO IT. ADI SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATIONS, ENDORSEMENTS, GUARANTEES, OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATED
