STMicroelectronics LSM303 3D Accelerometers/Magnetometer Models
The STMicroelectronics LSM303DLM Next Generation Digital Compass is an ultra-low-power device that provides advanced navigation and location-based services in portable consumer applications by integrating high-resolution three-axis sensing of linear and magnetic motion in a 5x5x1mm package. The STMicroelectronics LSM303DLM sensor module provides extremely accurate output across full-scale ranges of ±2g/±4g/±8g (linear acceleration) and from ±1.3 up to ±8 gauss (magnetic field). This digital compass device boasts state-of-the-art stability over time and temperature and a 30% increase in magnetic sensing resolution over its predecessor, the LSM303DLH. The module is pin-to-pin and software-compatible with the previous-generation device. The LSM303DLM is ideal for use in a wide variety of applications, including compensated compass, map rotation, position detection, free-fall detection, and more.
