The MXC4005XC is the world's first monolithic 3D accelerometer, and also the first 3D accelerometer to utilize WLP technology. The technology breakthrough in combining the 3D IC sensor with full WLP translates directly to a 60 percent reduction in cost and a 50 percent reduction in size, enabling a new generation of mobile consumer devices including phones, tablets, toys and wearable devices Its operation is based on our patented MEMS-thermal technology and is built using a standard 0.18um CMOS process. This sensor contains no moving parts (such as a ball) 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. Shock survival is greater than 200,000g. This sensor detects four orientation positions, 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 device also has a power down enabled through the I2C interface.
