This is a Arduino library for the MMA845x family of Accelerometers.
The MMA8453Q is a 3.3v 2/4/8G 10bit I2C digital accelerometer capable of output data rates from 1.56 Hz to 800 Hz.

It includes the basic setup as well as free fall, pulse and jolt detection on programmable interrupt pins.

The library, a write up and a schematic with level shifting can be found here:
