Triaxial Digital Magnetic Sensor

WMAG-03 is an integrated 3-axis magnetic field sensing module. The variable inductance property of sensors is used in a cost and space efficient ASIC which incorporates a temperature and noise stabilized oscillator/counter circuit with an SPI interface. The microprocessor compatible SPI interface allows easy access to the WMAG-03's measurement parameters and resulting field measurement data.

Advantages include 3V operation, low power consumption, large signal noise immunity under all conditions, and a large dynamic range. Resolution and field measurement range are software configurable for a variety of applications. The measurement is very stable over temperature and inherently free from offset drift.
