I noticed that in other types of accelerometers this is an issue, i want to have as much precision as possible so if you have another product that you can suggest my i would be grateful.
I have never heard about such an issue. You should be able to access either the 14-bit data or the 8-bit data.
Could you please elaborate a bit more on your findings? What FIFO mode are you using and what is your test settings?
this issue that i have found concerns another's company product, that is why i want to buy the FXO, if you want the details of the product i can send it to you. The exact words are " When FIFO is used - there is 10 bit data resolution in normal mode; 8 bit data resolution in low power mode (compared to 12 bit data resolution when FIFO is notused)". The data resolution of the ADC is 16 bit in normal mode. I might be wrong but that is what i understand.
Thank you for your response
I cannot comment on products from other companies, but there is no limitation on resolution regardless of the selected FIFO mode. This applies to the FXOS8700CQ (accelerometer + magnetomer) as well as both the MMA8451Q and FXLS8471Q (accelerometers only).
