The Accelerometer: Hardware

Hardware Design
           Following the schematic seen earlier in the write-up we create the circuit on a breadboard seen in the picture below:

           Some SIPS have been soldered to the accelerometer so that it is easily inserted into the breadboard. The circuit is not very difficult to wire up and requires few parts. This should make things significantly easier!

           Now that you've got the hardware all wired up, it's time to program the pic and get things going for real. The next section describes the program the PIC uses to take in and interpret the accelerometer data.
