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.
Real time clocks
The RTC is a time registering device to keep track of time in industrial or PC application. It is able to keep time even when the device is turned off. The RTC is connected to a small battery (which usually has a long lifespan, 5 or more years). Specifically, the RTC maintains the second, minute, hour, day, year, and century for the system.
