Baolab Uses Its NanoEMS Technology to Create Ultra-low Cost 3D Digital MEMS Compasses in CMOS

Barcelona, Spain - 5 July 2011. Until now, 3D Compasses have typically used non-standard technologies such as magneto-resistive materials or Hall-effect structures combined with magnetic field concentrators to detect the direction of the Earth's magnetic field. Baolab Microsystems is first to design a pure CMOS Lorentz force MEMS sensor and, as a result, its new 3D Digital NanoCompass(TM) matches...
