Magnetic Sensor IC facilitates HMI implementation.

November 19, 2014

Based on proprietary Triaxis® technology, Model MLX90393 measures changes in magnetic flux density along its X, Y, and Z axes. Programmable unit employs monolithic pixel cell arrangement and enables linear sensitivity across selectable 16-bit full-scale range from ±5 mT to ±50 mT. Using SPI and I2C interfaces, engineers can access various operating modes: continuous, single measurement, wake up on change, and burst mode. Supplied in 3 x 3 mm QFN package, IC draws 2.5 µA of current while idle. Read More
