The ADXL335 is an three axis analog accelerometer which outputs raw X, Y and Z axis values on three pins. Let's connect these to the analog input pins on Explore M3 and log the data to the serial monitor.

This is a standard Arduino example that I will be using. We will make a tutorial some time later to do some math and put the accelerometer to good use.
