3-axis Electronic Compass

AK8973 is a geomagnetism detection type electronic compass IC. The small package of AK8973 integrates magnetic Sensors for detecting geomagnetism in the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis, and arithmetic circuit for processing the signal from each Sensor AK8973 outputs four data in total as 8-bit digital values respectively: 3-axis magnetic Sensor measured values and Temperature Sensor read value. By processing the magnetic Sensor measured values with an external CPU, azimuth data CAN be obtained. By using AK8973 integrated into the system, a navigation system is achieved with reduced space in portable equipment such as PDA or mobile phone incorporating the GPs function.
