Santa Clara, CA, 10/31/2013 (Globe Newswire)—MEMSIC Inc., a leading solutions provider, combining proprietary MEMS technology with systems solutions, today announced here at the ARM TechCON conference an Electronic Compass (e-compass) library . It is the first member of its Atmel applications Gallery library to accelerate embedded designers’ ability to create smarter connected devices including consumer sensor hubs, Internet of Things and wearables.

The Electronic Compass software applications extention provides a highly accurate fully tilt compensated electronic compass with calibration that supports the MEMSIC’s recently introduced MMC3416PJ ultra low noise, low power magnetometer in a 1.6 x 1.6 x 0.6 package.  High heading accuracy of the compass is enabled by the high performance and low noise of the MMC3416PJ. 

Integrating sensors can be complex and time consuming.  A thorough understanding of the theory of magnetics, sensor behavior, calibration and tilt compensation is required before the design can start, and the digital outputs of counts per gauss, and counts per g need to be filtered and translated and correlated into a tilt compensated heading.
