The Honeywell HMC1055 is a 3-axis compass sensor chipset that combines the HMC1051Z single-axis and the HMC1052 two-axis
magneto-resistive sensors, plus a two-axis MEMSIC MXS3334UL accelerometer in a single kit. By combining these three sensor
packages, OEM compass system designers will have the building blocks needed to create their own tilt compensated compass
designs using these proven components.
The HMC1055 chip set includes the three sensor integrated circuits and this datasheet describes the application notes for sensor function, a reference design, and design tips for integrating the compass feature into other product platforms.
Honeywell's Magnetoresistive (AMR) sensor technology provides advantages over coil based magnetic sensors and are among the most sensitive and reliable low-field sensors in the industry. The MEMSIC accelerometer offers a low cost, high performance tilt sensor (inclinometer) function using its unique thermal chimney effect.
Honeywell continues to maintain product excellence and performance by introducing innovative solid-state magnetic sensor solutions. These are highly reliable, top performance products that are delivered when promised. Honeywell's magnetic sensor solutions provide real solutions you can count on.
