Introduction
CMA3000 demo demonstrates the CMA3000 component functionality and the component key
properties. This document describes how to install the required software and how to use the
CMA3000 demo board and Graphical User Interface (GUI) software.
CMA3000 demo consists of:
• CMA3000 sensor soldered on chip carrier PWB (see Figure 1 on next page)
• USB interface card (see Figure 1 on next page)
• USB cable
• GUI software running on PC
The CMA3000 DEMO KIT supports digital CMA3000 series sensor, CMA3000-D01. The support
for analog CMA3000-A01 will be added later. The evaluation boards (SCA3000 PWBs) are
compatible with the SCA3000 DEMO KIT.
CMA3000 demo runs on Windows XP and 2000, it requires USB connection for data transfer.
Demo is powered from USB port. The current GUI software does not support Windows Vista. The
CMA3000 demo is based on the same USB hardware PCB as the SCA3000 DEMO KIT, also the
same driver can be used with all demo kits provided by VTI Technologies.
2
Quick start for using the CMA3000 DEMO KIT
Please follow the steps below:
1. Insert CD-ROM
2. Setup the hardware
- Connect the demo kit to PC's USB port
3. Install the USB driver, after the PC has found the device
- When the PC detects the new USB device, do not let Windows to detect the driver,
address the USB driver from folder:
"CD-ROM\CMA3000 demo - Virtual Com Port Drivers\”
- NOTICE, if you have already installed some other demo kit provided by VTI
Technologies, please check that the latency timer parameter is 5 ms. In case the
latency timer value is greater than 5 ms, the CMA3000 DEMO KIT GUI will not
work (more detailed instructions in section 9)
4. Install the GUI software
- Install the GUI software by running the “setup.exe" from folder:
CD-ROM\CMA3000 demo – GUI Installer
- Do not change the installation destination
5. Start the GUI software
- From Start → Programs → CMA3000-USB-DEMO-VER-1.1 →
CMA3000-USB-DEMO-VER-1.1
When using the CMA3000 DEMO KIT with GUI software:
• The DEMO KIT should be connected to PC before the GUI software is started
• Exit the GUI software before unplugging the DEMO KIT from PC
• After GUI software is stopped, the DEMO KIT can be unplugged from PC (DEMO KIT uses
virtual serial port driver, so it can not be found as a USB device).
During software start up, the firewall may alert that the demo software wants a network access.
The demo software can be operated without the network access (granting the network access
won't change the software operation.)

Advanced data logging
Acceleration data can be saved from GUI software by pressing the “Save to file” button (Figure 2).
Data can be logged also by using the Windows HyperTerminal software and macro language that
is used to control the MCU of the CMA3000 DEMO KIT.
Please notice that GUI software and Windows HyperTerminal software can not be open at the
same time. Follow the steps below to start the data logging:
1. Connect CMA3000 DEMO KIT with USB cable to PC
2. Open GUI software to see the correct COM port number (SETUP display, see Figure 10).
Windows Device Manager can be also used to find out the COM port number.
3. Close the GUI software.
4. Open Windows HyperTerminal software from CD-ROM:
− “CMA3000_demo_HyperTerminal_connection.ht”, or
− see detailed serial communication settings in Table 2.
5. Press demo reset button (see Figure 1). CMA3000 DEMO KIT sends an info text to
HyperTerminal (see Figure 12). If the HyperTerminal software is unable to connect the
CMA3000 DEMO KIT or the info text does not appear,
,
- Press disconnect
,
- change the COM port number to correct from port properties
,
- press connect
- press reset button on CMA3000 DEMO KIT.
until info text appears to HyperTerminal screen (see Figure 12).
6. After the info text appears on HyperTerminal, send the wanted macro text file, such as
“CMA3000_data_logger.txt” from CD-ROM (“Transfer” pull down menu → “Send Text
File…” → browse for
CMA3000_data_logger_macro.txt)
7. The text file is a macro that runs in an endless loop. The macro sends 3-axis acceleration
data in hex format to HyperTerminal (see Figure 13). Example of data format:
0x3c,0x01,0x01,Z-Y-X
where “0x” indicates for hex format, and “Z-Y-X” the axis order. The Z-axis hex output is
3C, which is ‘0011 1100’ in binary format.
8. The data can be stored by capturing the data in to file:
“Transfer” pull down menu → “Capture Text…” → save captured data into wanted file and
folder.
9. Data capturing can be stopped from:
“Transfer” pull down menu → “Capture Text…” → “Stop”
Macro language is used to control the CMA3000 DEMO KIT. It can be also used to configure the
CMA3000 sensor. For more detailed information of macro language, please refer to “SCA3000
DEMO KIT macro language description 8259200”.

CMA3000 current consumption measurement with DEMO KIT
The current consumption of the CMA3000 sensor can be calculated by measuring the voltage drop
over the resistor R34 (470 Ω, 1% tolerance). Voltage drop can be measured from test points TP5
and TP6, see DEMO KIT USB interface board circuit diagram in Figure 16 (PCB design
VTI 29393 rev B0).
The offset current consumption of the DEMO KIT hardware depends on used serial communication
(SPI vs. I2C). The offset current consumption according to serial communication type is presented
in Table 3 below.
Table 3. Offset current consumption of the CMA3000 DEMO KIT HW.
Serial interface
SPI
I2C
Offset current consumption
~950 µA (Voffset = 444 mV)
~200 µA (Voffset = 94 mV)
The offset current consumption can also be measured by measuring the voltage drop over the
resistor R34 (TP5 and TP6, see Figure 16) when CMA3000 PWB is not connected to USB
interface board.
SCA3000 current consumption can be calculated
⎛ V − Voffset
Idd = ⎜⎜ drop
⎝ 470 Ω
⎞
⎟⎟,
⎠
(1)
where Vdrop is the measured voltage drop in [V] (from TP5 to TP6, see Figure 16), Voffset is the
measured offset current consumption (from TP5 to TP6, see Figure 16), alternatively the values
from Table 3 can be used. Idd is the CMA3000 current consumption in [A].
The difference in offset current consumption is due the pull up resistor in SCK/SCL line (R2 in
Figure 15). When using SPI-bus, the MCU software drives the SCK/SCL line low when there is no
communication, which results in increase in DEMO KIT offset current consumption (current through
resistor R2 in Figure 15 from DVDD to GND). When I2C is used, the MCU releases the SCK/SCL
line when there is no communication.
