STMicroelectronics LIS3MDL 3-Axis Magnetometer
STMicroelectronics LIS3MDL 3-Axis Magnetometer is an ultra low-power high performance three axis magnetic sensor in a very small package. Because of its small size and high performance, the sensor is ideal for mobile phones, tablets or personal navigation devices. ST's stand alone magnetometer is also perfectly suited to indoor navigation applications where it reliably calculates dead-reckoning when no satellite signal is available. This device offers the unique flexibility for designers to implement movement and position detection in space-constrained products such as smartphones and personal navigation devices. The device can also be combined with other discrete sensors from ST such as 3-axis MEMS accelerometer or 3-axis MEMS gyroscope, to build sensors with as many as 9 degrees of freedom (DOF).
