MEMSIC Inc. recently announced the availability of its MMC246xMT Two-Axis Magnetic Sensor. The sensor is provided in a miniature 2.0x2.0x1.0 mm. Land Grid Array (LGA) package and is capable of operating from a single 1.8 V supply. Applications include electronic compassing, in-vehicle GPS assist, GPS wristwatches and industrial field measurements including traffic control and parking management.

The MEMSIC MMC246xMT Two-Axis Magnetic Sensor uses MEMSIC's proprietary anisotropic magnetic resistive (AMR) technology to achieve its high performance. Operating over the range of 0.0006T full scale, its fully integrated design provides all of the necessary circuit functions to facilitate its design into systems while saving space.

The sensor exhibits superior performance in critical electrical design parameters including dynamic range, accuracy over temperature and power consumption. Its low noise of 0.8mG total RMS and resolution of 0.25mG per least significant bit (LSB) result in a more accurate heading determination with less averaging in addition to having a
