4.8.6.5 Tap sensing in low power mode
In low-power mode, a limited number of samples is processed after wake-up to decide whether
an interrupt condition is fulfilled. The number of samples is selected by bits (0x2B) tap_samp
according to table 16.
4.8.7 Orientation recognition
The orientation recognition feature informs on an orientation change of the sensor with respect
to the gravitational field vector ‘g’. The measured acceleration vector components with respect
to the gravitational field are defined as shown in figure 8.
Therefore, the magnitudes of the acceleration vectors are calculated as follows:
