The MAG3110 is a small, low-power digital 3D magnetic sensor with a wide dynamic range to allow operation in PCBs with high extraneous magnetic fields. The MAG3110:
- Measures the components of the local magnetic field, the sum of the geomagnetic field and the magnetic field created by components on the circuit board
- Can be used in conjunction with a 3-axis accelerometer so that orientation-independent accurate compass heading information may be achieved
- Features a standard I²C serial interface and is capable of measuring local magnetic fields up to 10 Gauss with output data rates up to 80 Hz
