Saelig (Fairport, NY) has announced the IST8301C - a single-chip 3-axis digital magnetometer sensor, housed in an extremely small form factor (2.5 x 2.5 x 1.0mm) 12-pin BGA package. The IST8301C is an integrated chip containing 3-axis magnetic sensors with an ASIC controller. The IST8301C outputs 13-bit data over a wide magnetic field range (+/- 1000uT) in a fast-mode 400kHz I2C digital output. The compact form factor is easily surface-mounted and is ideally suited to high-volume production consumer electronics, navigation systems, and magnetometers. Features include:
- 32 slots of 16-bit FIFO data for each of 3 output channels X, Y, Z.
- A "wake up only as needed" operation that allows consistent system-power saving.
- Functions on 2.4V with a standby current of 10uA & full operation at 300uA.
- Anti-Offset & Anti-Temperature.
