Sensors Expo 2013, USA: MEMSIC Inc. announced the availability of its MMC246xMT two-axis magnetic sensor.
This fully integrated high performance part is provided in a miniature 2.0 mm. x 2.0 mm. x 1.0 mm. Land Grid Array (LGA) package and is capable of operating from a single 1.8 V supply.
It offers the industry's best performance at the lowest power consumption for a two-axis magnetic sensor, making it ideal for portable applications. Applications include electronic compassing, in-vehicle GPS assist, GPS wristwatches and industrial field measurements including traffic control and parking management.
The MEMSIC MMC246xMT Two-Axis Magnetic Sensor uses MEMSIC's proprietary anisotropic magnetic resistive (AMR) technology to achieve its high performance. Operating over the range of +/- 6 Gauss full scale, its fully integrated design provides all of the necessary circuit functions to facilitate its design into systems while saving space, reducing cost and increasing reliability over other solutions that require external circuit elements.
