MEMSIC announced the availability of the MMC5883MA 3 axis magnetic sensor. A member of MEMSIC’s Anisotropic Magneto Resistive (AMR) based Magnetic Sensor family, it provides accuracy, low noise and low power consumption, all combined in an LGA package, and addresses the demands of industrial and drone applications.

memsic5883_web_buThe MEMSIC MMC5883MA 3-axis magnetic sensor provides 16-bit operation over a ± 8 Gauss operating range with linearity of ± 0.2 % FSR, hysteresis of 0.2 % FSR and repeatability of 0.2 % FSR on each of its 3-axis.  Its performance enables faster algorithms for hard and soft iron interference correction delivering precise heading determination.  The LGA package measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.0 mm. and operates over the -40 C to + 85 C temperature range from a supply voltage of 2.16 to 3.6 volts.  It exhibits low current consumption of 20uA at seven samples per second data rate and a noise level of only 0.4 mGauss total RMS noise making it ideal for drone and industrial…
