Greetings to everyone,


and sorry for posting an accelerometer related question here but there seems to be no dedicated subforum for these tiny devices.  Please help me understanding this in the datasheet, page 5:


"10 MΩ or higher is recommended on XOUT, YOUT and
ZOUT to prevent loss due to the voltage divider
relationship between the internal 32 kΩ resistor and
the measurement input impedance."


Does it mean that I need to connect  1MOhm resistors in series with each output of the accelerometer?

Thank you.
