  1. I'm looking for an Inclinometer / Tilt Sensor that will take a 5V DC
    input and give a 0-5V output, help! please?
     
  2. The AD and ST accelerometer chips will do this. You may beed to amplify and offset the output to get
    a full range when measuring tild, and do some trig/lookups to convert to angle.
    I think AD have an apnote on it
     
  3. thanks! the ADXL103 looks good, but could somebody explain to me exactly
    what the 'Common' pin connects to? (forgive me, I'm more of a software
    than a hardware person)
