• 3-axis Magnetic Sensor
• 3-axis Accelerometer for tilt compensation
• I2C serial interface
• Power: 3.3V regulated, 4.5mA consumption
• RoHS Compliant
This Compass Module with Tilt Compensation offers the latest IC module in the compass arena from Honeywell. The HMC6343 has three axes of magneto, three axis of accelerometer, and a PIC core running all the calculations. What you get is a compass heading over I2C that stays the same even as you tilt the board. Classic solid-state (and many classic) compasses fail badly when not held flat. The tilt compensated HMC6343 is crucial for those real-world compass applications. Who says robots have to stay flat?
