(0x16) s_tap_en and (0x16) d_tap_en, then only (0x16) d_tap_en keeps the value ´1´ and the
double tap interrupt is enabled.
The status of the single tap interrupt is stored in bit (0x09) s_tap_int, the status of the double tap
interrupt is stored in bit (0x09) d_tap_int.
The slope threshold for detecting a tap event is set by bits (0x2B) tap_th. The meaning of
(0x2B) tap_th depends on the range setting. 1 LSB of (0x2B) tap_th corresponds to a slope of
62.5mg in 2g-range, 125mg in 4g-range, 250mg in 8g-range, and 500mg in 16g-range.
In figure 7 the meaning of the different timing parameters is visualized:

tap_th
tap_shock
single tap detection
double tap detection
The parameters (0x2A) tap_shock and (0x2A) tap_quiet apply to both single tap and double tap
detection, while (0x2A) tap_dur applies to double tap detection only. Within the duration of
(0x2A) tap_shock any slope exceeding (0x2B) tap_th after the first event is ignored. Contrary to
this, within the duration of (0x2A) tap_quiet no slope exceeding (0x2B) tap_th must occur,
otherwise the first event will be cancelled.
