MMA8452Q_Basic.ino
SFE_MMA8452Q Library Basic Example Sketch
Jim Lindblom @ SparkFun Electronics
Original Creation Date: June 3, 2014
https://github.com/sparkfun/MMA8452_Accelerometer
This sketch uses the SparkFun_MMA8452Q library to initialize the
accelerometer, and stream values from it.
Hardware hookup:
Arduino --------------- MMA8452Q Breakout
3.3V --------------- 3.3V
GND --------------- GND
SDA (A4) --\/330 Ohm\/-- SDA
SCL (A5) --\/330 Ohm\/-- SCL
The MMA8452Q is a 3.3V max sensor, so you'll need to do some
level-shifting between the Arduino and the breakout. Series
resistors on the SDA and SCL lines should do the trick.
Development environment specifics:
IDE: Arduino 1.0.5
Hardware Platform: Arduino Uno
**Updated for Arduino 1.6.4 5/2015**
This code is beerware; if you see me (or any other SparkFun employee) at the
local, and you've found our code helpful, please buy us a round!

#include <Wire.h> // Must include Wire library for I2C
#include <SparkFun_MMA8452Q.h> // Includes the SFE_MMA8452Q library
// Begin using the library by creating an instance of the MMA8452Q
// class. We'll call it "accel". That's what we'll reference from
// here on out.
MMA8452Q accel;
// The setup function simply starts serial and initializes the
// accelerometer.
void setup()
{
Serial.begin(9600);
Serial.println("MMA8452Q Test Code!");
// Choose your adventure! There are a few options when it comes
// to initializing the MMA8452Q:
// 1. Default init. This will set the accelerometer up
// with a full-scale range of +/-2g, and an output data rate
// of 800 Hz (fastest).
accel.init();
// 2. Initialize with FULL-SCALE setting. You can set the scale
// using either SCALE_2G, SCALE_4G, or SCALE_8G as the value.
// That'll set the scale to +/-2g, 4g, or 8g respectively.
//accel.init(SCALE_4G); // Uncomment this out if you'd like
// 3. Initialize with FULL-SCALE and DATA RATE setting. If you
// want control over how fast your accelerometer produces
// data use one of the following options in the second param:
// ODR_800, ODR_400, ODR_200, ODR_100, ODR_50, ODR_12,
// ODR_6, or ODR_1.
// Sets to 800, 400, 200, 100, 50, 12.5, 6.25, or 1.56 Hz.
//accel.init(SCALE_8G, ODR_6);
}
// The loop function will simply check for new data from the
// accelerometer and print it out if it's available.
void loop()
{
// Use the accel.available() function to wait for new data
// from the accelerometer.
if (accel.available())
{
// First, use accel.read() to read the new variables:
accel.read();
// accel.read() will update two sets of variables.
// * int's x, y, and z will store the signed 12-bit values
// read out of the accelerometer.
// * floats cx, cy, and cz will store the calculated
// acceleration from those 12-bit values. These variables
// are in units of g's.
// Check the two function declarations below for an example
// of how to use these variables.
printCalculatedAccels();
//printAccels(); // Uncomment to print digital readings
// The library also supports the portrait/landscape detection
// of the MMA8452Q. Check out this function declaration for
// an example of how to use that.
printOrientation();
Serial.println(); // Print new line every time.

// accel.z variables.
