[ADXL362] Changing ODR doesn't affect FIFO_WATER-MARK frequency

Good morning,

I'm working on an university project, using MSP430 (msp430fr5969) with ADXL362 as gesture recognizer.

I wrote my own libraries for the accelerometer communications, configurations and applications.


I don't know if I don't understand well how FIFO works or if it's just a bug in my code, or maybe something else.

As the title states, I'm not able to change the ODR in order to increase the FIFO WaterMark frequency.


I wrote a test program to focus only on this problem, still using my own libraries. I'm not using any external osc. I think the SPI communication is ok, since I can write and read from registers, in single and burst mode. The register is the right one (0x2C FILTER_CTL), since I'm able to succesfully modify the range, for example.


The configuration for the test application is:

  • Activity Threshold: 250,
  • Activity Timer: 0,
  • Inactivity Threshold: 150,
  • Inactivity Timer: 30,
  • FifoControl: AH | FIFO_OLDEST,
  • FifoSamples: 0xFF,
  • IntMap1: 0,
  • IntMap2: 0,
  • FilterControl: HALF_BW | ODR_12_5,
  • PowerControl: WAKEUP | MEAS_MODE
