The Tilt and Vibration Sensor TVS0713.180 is a surface mount passive electronic component that acts as a tilt orientation detector to “wake up” or “switch on/off” depending upon tilt orientation of the sensor. 

Fully passive, the sensor requires no signal conditioning and operates with currents as low as 0.2 microamps.  In a surface mount package, it measures only 2.85mm x 2.45mm x 1.7mm, it is halogen free with a temperature range from -40 up to +850C, and it has a wide operating voltage range of 1.8 to 15VDC.  It can eliminate the need for accelerometers in many applications.

The TVS0713.180 is particularly useful for the new emerging wearable’s market and the Internet of Things whever battery life is critical.  Another typical application would be a remote control with a QWERTY keyboard, where the TVS0713.180 can detect if the remote control or the keyboard side is facing upwards.
