This is product is no longer for sale, it has been replaced with Twig - 3-axis Compass.
The 2-axis compass module integrates HMC6352 two-axis magnetic sensor with the required external circuits for heading computation. For the ultimate in electronic functionality, this innovative electronic compass provides an electronic compass function using two-axis magnetic field sensing. To speed your design cycle, the HMC6352 is easy to use as a drop in, plug and play component.
The 2-axis compass Module combines the sensor elements and all the processing electronics in a 6.5mm square package to satisfy smaller, next generation applications. Aimed for low power battery operation on OEM printed circuit boards, the HMC6352 uses a I2C digital interface slaved to the manufacturer's microprocessor to transfer compass heading data. Heading update rates from 1 to 20Hz are selectable.
