FXLS8471Q PCB Layout Suggestion Question

I am interested in using the FXLS8471Q accelerometer in an upcoming design that has tight space requirements. I read in the datasheet that it is suggested to have all other components and vias more than 2mm away from the PCB land area. Unfortunately this is not possible for my design.


What are the potential risks involved in having vias or components roughly 1 mm away? Are there any other ways to minimize those risks?


I've purchased a breakout board from Freescale and measured the via distance with calipers and it seems they are less than 2 mm away from the chip.


Thanks for any help,
