MEMSIC (Andover, MA) announced the availability of its MMC3524xPJ Three-Axis Magnetic Sensor. This fully integrated device achieves a dramatic increase in performance, particularly in the areas of stability over temperature and time, and insensitivity to external magnetic disturbance. In particular, the offset drift over temperature is <1.5mGauss, which is more than 100x better than the nearest competitor. Additionally, the device can withstand a magnetic disturbance of up to 100G without recalibration. This enhanced stability enables the elimination of the inconvenient and frequent “figure-8” user calibration, delivering a whole new user experience in mobile phones, tablets and wearable devices. Features include:
- Anisotropic magnetic resistive (AMR) technology.
- Full scale range of +/- 24 Gauss (+/- 2400 μTesla).
- RMS noise of 2mGauss (0.2uT).
