How to configure the MMAxxKW sensor to get the acceleration data(g-value) on any axis.

Dear all,


Recenlty I have started using MMA6813BKW dual axis SPI sensor. I need to calculate the g-value out of this sensor and I am trying to configure it as below.


  • Vcc supplied with 3.3v
  • VREG and VREGA are connected to center plate with 1uf cap, VSS is given to ground
  • MOSI, MISO, CLK and CS are connected to SPI tool.


I have configured the sensor according to the details given in the data sheet page num: 45, sec: 4.1. I requested the raw acceleration data out from x-axis, unsigned and with odd parity. based on the above configuration I send the SPI MOSI

command as 0x3004 (I send only this command 4times, no other configuration made) as a response MISO I am getting only 0x0E00, even if I move the sensor in all directions.


Can you please support me on the following topics,

  1. -Is the configuration I made correct? if not what I have to configure additionally.
  2. -Is the single MOSI command enough to get the acceleration data?
  3. -Do I additionally need anything other than the mentioned details to have acceleration data at least on one axis.


Thanks in advance.


Best Regards
