Does anyone know how the temperture of the outside envirnment effects the accuracy of the accelerometers. And if it does how do we make it more accurate in near freezing and very hot temps.

Hello gkushner,

You might want to read this article in another forum thread, about getting more accurate measurements with the Memsic dual-axis accelerometer in temperatures above and below room temperature. I hope this is what you are after.

I'll second that article. I've used that code on two different chips. Works SUPER!!. Each chip is different, so you'll need to 'center' it, then you're good to go.

HTH, Chris
