Single-chip magnetometer launched by ST
The device offers flexibility for designers to implement movement and position detection in space-constrained products. It can also be combined with other discrete sensors such as 3-axis MEMS accelerometer or 3-axis MEMS gyroscope, to build sensors with as many as 9 degrees of freedom (DOF).
Samples are available and mass production is scheduled for Q2 2013. Unit pricing is US$0.60 for volumes in the range of 1,000 pieces.
