    BMA456 Self Test while device is not still

    Hi,

    I successfully implemented the BMA456 recommented self test procedure in a custom driver of mine.

    I want to understand if the self test procedure can be executed anytime during the device lifecycle (e.g. when carried around) or if the device should be hold in a still position.

    I made some experimentation and it seems to me that the device could be moved, but I don't find anything about device state during self test in the datasheet.

    Best regards,

    Andrea

    Hello acanidio,

    During the self test, it is recommended that the equipment be stationary, so that the self test can be successful every time. The self test may fail under non-stationary conditions due to the direction of movement.
