I am using LIS332AR mems chip for vibration measurement. Assembled this chip in PCB and PCB located vertical with respect to ground. For every 90 degree rotation of this chip corresponding X and Y axis value changed either +1g or -1g. for 0g condition, voltage will be vcc/2. If change in X axis as +1g Y to be 0g. So the voltage of X axis is (vcc/2)+0.6V(Sensitivity) and Y axis to be (vcc/2). While giving any vibration, it is generating spike for 0.6V(sensitivity) amplitude with 80ms time. Whether can be use this accelerometer for vibration measurement and also for tilt application.
