I am trying to compare the sensitivity readings between two accelerometers and I noticed that they were in different units. How do I convert between LSB/g to mg/digit? Thanks.
I would imagine that "digit" might mean the same thing as LSB, but I would need to see it in the context of the actual specification to have full confidence in this assumption. 1000mg = 1g.
What device uses "digit" in its scale factor?
I am comparing between accelerometers ST Microelectronics LIS3DH and Invensense MP6500. The accelerometer made by ST Microelectronics has a sensitivity of 1 mg/digit on their product specification whereas the MP6500 has a listed sensitivity of 16384 LSB/g.

Are you seriously asking us for help in comparing two of our competitors?
Sorry, I should have mentioned that I have also looked into your devices in my comparison and am confused as to why many of the accelerometers that are provided by analog have different units compared to your competitor. It makes it a very challenging task to select which accelerometer is suited for my project.
I am sorry that this dialog was accidentally dropped. Were you able to make a selection? How did it work out? Generally speaking, we have a different target market than consumer-focused providers, who tend to copy each other more, since they are going after the same sockets. We have had pretty strong feedback on the relevance of our approach, from customers that need the performance advantages that come with our MEMS products. If you have any future questions, we look forward to you refreshing this discussion with a new post.
