self test mechanism

Question asked by mak.robin on Mar 28, 2014
Hello, I am new to ST accelerometers.

And I am interested to LIS3DE or LIS3DH.

I would like to know the mechanism of the self-testing mode.
Anyone can help to send me a link of ST site, so I can learn from that?
I tried to search by my self, but all are information of products, no explanation on the mechanisms.

I read some other documents on internet, that the self test of some others accelerometers,A electrostatic test force is applied to the mechanical sensing element , so the self-test actually is almost same as you move the sensor in reality.
So I want to know if ST 's Accelerometer works in same way.
