Breadboarding: Putting the Accelerometer on the Breadboard and Connecting it to the Microcontroller
Since this Freescale accelerometer requires a different voltage than the AVR microcontroller, another voltage regulator is used (Maxim MAX604). The MAX604 will be positioned on the other extreme side of the breadboard. The MAX604 uses 2 10uf capacitors to smooth the power signal at the input and the output. One portion of the power rails is dedicated to the 3.3v so the accelerometer can easily be connected to power.
