4.8.6.1 Single tap detection
A single tap is detected and the single tap interrupt is generated after the combined durations of
(0x2A) tap_shock and (0x2A) tap_quiet, if the corresponding slope conditions are fulfilled. The
interrupt is cleared after a delay of 12.5 ms.
4.8.6.2 Double tap detection
A double tap is detected and the double tap interrupt is generated if an event fulfilling the
conditions for a single tap occurs within the set duration in (0x2A) tap_dur after the completion
of the first tap event. The interrupt is cleared after a delay of 12.5 ms.
4.8.6.3 Selecting the timing of tap detection
For each of parameters (0x2A) tap_shock and (0x2A) tap_quiet two values are selectable. By
writing ´0´ (´1´) to bit (0x2A) tap_shock the duration of (0x2A) tap_shock is set to 50 ms (75 ms).
By writing ´0´ (´1´) to bit (0x2A) tap_quiet the duration of (0x2A) tap_quiet is set to 30 ms (20
ms).
The length of (0x2A) tap_dur can be selected by setting the (0x2A) tap_dur bits according to
table 15:
4.8.6.4 Axis and sign information of tap sensing
The sign of the slope of the first tap which triggered the interrupt is stored in bit (0x0B) tap_sign
(´0´ means positive sign, ´1´ means negative sign). The value of this bit persists after clearing
the interrupt.
The axis which triggered the interrupt is indicated by bits (0x0B) tap_first_x, (0x0B) tap_first_y,
and (0x0B) tap_first_z.
The bit corresponding to the triggering axis contains a ´1´ while the other bits hold a ´0´. These
bits are cleared together with clearing the interrupt status.
