I have a ADXL202 accelerometer on a ADXL202EB evalution board. I think that it
isn't working well, I get 7-8 V in the leaving, after to pass by a filter, and
I'm think that it's tooy tall, is all right?


That voltage is too high, indeed. +6V is the maximum allowable supply voltage

The part is most than likely broken. The correct bias level at analog outputs
should be mid-supply for 0g acceleration.
The ADXL202 can only withstand 1000g. dropping the device onto a hard surface
such as a concrete floor is enough to break the internal springs and
permanently damage the device.
