The Honeywell HMC5983 is a temperature compensated three-axis integrated circuit e-compass. This surface-mount, multi-chip module is designed for low-field magnetic sensing for applications such as mobile
phones, tablets, netbooks, consumer electronics, automotive navigation systems, and
personal navigation devices.
The HMC5983 includes our state-of-the-art, high-resolution HMC118X series magnetoresistive sensors plus an ASIC containing amplification, automatic degaussing strap drivers, offset cancellation, and a 12-bit ADC that enables 1° to 2° compass heading accuracy. The I2C or SPI serial bus allows for easy interface. The HMC5983 is a 3.0x3.0x0.9mm surface mount 16-pin leadless chip carrier (LCC).
Power supply: DC3-5V
PCB size: 15mm * 24mm
Heading angle accuracy of 1-2 degrees.
