3D-magnetometer optimized for battery powered applications
Stephen LawElectronics Semiconductors semiconductor
MELEXIS MLX90397 three-dimensional magnetometer for position sensing features a wide supply voltage (1.7 to 3.6V), and suitable for battery powered appliances for both consumer and industrial applications. The 16-bit 3-axis sensor device that has a magnetic field range reaching 50mT (with an adaptive range on the z-axis of up to 200mT). The user can choose the fields to measure among BX, BY, BZ, temperature or a combination. The sensing element relies on the proven Triaxis 3D Hall effect technology. Captured data are converted into a digital form and then transferred over an I2C interface.
