Last born of the HONEYWELL magnetoresistive sensors family dedicated to compass applications. This component takes the architecture of the HMC5883L with 3-axis, including analog and digital ASIC. The data output rate will go up to 220Hz, ideal for the motion sensing applications.
It includes a new communication bus by SPI 3 or 4 wires.
Improvement of the I²C speed from 400 kHz to 3,4 MHz.
Improvement of the temperature sensore for a best compensation and possibility to get the temperature value.
Samples already available.
Mass production in November 2011.
Datasheet downloadable on our website.
