1.2x1.2x0.5mm 3-axis magnetometer delivers ±1º accuracy

March 25, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Delivered in a 1.2x1.2x0.5mm BGA package, MEMSIC's MMC3630KJ series magnetometer includes an integrated monolithic 3-axis AMR sensor and a signal conditioning ASIC in one device.

The MMC3630KJ is a breakthrough design in AMR technology with the ability to reach ±30G range, and more than 5x better noise level compared to other technologies, claims the manufacturer. With 600Hz magnetic sensing bandwidth, the chip is able to provide better than ±1ºaccuracy in eCompass applications. The design also has drastically lower system level power consumption and processing time. The series also includes a self-degaussing feature, which can eliminate the output drift due to temperature change and residual magnetic from ambient magnetic field. The series also includes an interruption feature, which can be used for motion detection and data acquisition ready notifications to lower system-level power consumption.
