Magnetometer Combines High Performance, Small Size

30 March 2016

The MMC3630KJ from MEMSIC Inc. is a magnetometer in an ultra-small BGA package targeting portable devices. The MMC3630KJ series magnetometer includes an integrated monolithic 3-axis AMR sensor and a signal conditioning ASIC into an ultra-small (1.2 x 1.2x 0.5 mm) BGA package.

The MMC3630KJ has the ability to reach ±30 G range, and more than 5x better noise level compared to other technologies. With 600 Hz magnetic sensing bandwidth, the MMC3630KJ is able to provide better than ±10 accuracy in eCompass applications. The design also has lower system- level power consumption and processing time.
The MMC3630KJ includes a self-degaussing feature, which can eliminate the output drift due to temperature change and residual magnetic from ambient magnetic field. The series also includes an interruption feature, which can be used for motion detection and data acquisition-ready notifications to lower system-level power consumption.
