Is it possible to connect the following acceleration sensor to the Arduino board ?
BOSCH SMB 360/365
http://www.bosch-sensortec.com/content/language1/html/3474.htm

The sensor chip use an SPI interface. Can someone explain what it means ?

Thanks in advance

i think it will be hard to interface it with arduino...  :-/

ehm

SPI is actually kinda easy to implement

here is an example  by  Heather Dewey-Hagborg of SPI used to control a digital Potentiometre http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SPIDigitalPot

see also http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SPIEEPROM

now the prob is to understand what type of mesages you need to exchange with that

I just posted an example for interfacing to an accelerometer using SPI. It's a different device than what you're using, but interfacing over SPI is fairly straightforward (even easy..) with the Arduino. You can find the tutorial here:
