Product Description

Parallax speeds the process of Propeller 2 development through our partnership with MikroE, who has created a family of 850+ Clicks for most I/O functions you may envision. For each of the Click boards stocked by Parallax, you will find a documented Spin 2 code example on our Propeller GitHub Object Exchange. Connect your Click boards to the Propeller 2 Evaluation Board or P2-EC Edge Breakout Breadboard using the #64008 P2 to MikroBus Click Adapter.

The LIS3DH is a high performance, ultra-low power, three-axis linear accelerometer. It features user-selectable scales up to 16g, an embedded temperature sensor, 10-bit ADC and a standard digital I2C/SPI serial interface.

Parallax Inc. places the LIS3DH on a compact 20×21 mm PCB with an 8-pin straight header.  The I/O connections operate at the same voltage supplied to the VIN pin for compatibility with both 3.3 V and 5 V microcontrollers. The Parallax module includes a low-noise 2.5 V regulator which matches the LIS3DH factory calibration voltage for the highest possible accuracy.

This LS3DH module is supported by the latest Propeller C libraries as well as dedicated BlocklyProp Solo blocks for easy visual programming.


  • Factory calibrated with 2.5 V low-noise regulator
  • User-selectable full scales of 2 g, 4 g, 8 g, 16 g
  • Hardware supports I2C, SPI 3-wire, & SPI 4-wire interfaces
  • Over-voltage, reverse polarity, and signal contention protection of all signal pins
  • VIN / GND reverse polarity protection
  • Compatible with 3.3 V and 5 V microcontrollers
