1525 Analog Compass Sensor

This sensor provides a ratiometric output on two channels. The outputs swing from 2.9v to 2.1v in a sine/cosine fashion. It will return to the indicated direction from a 90 degree displacement in approximately 2.5 seconds with no overswing.


Power 5-volts DC @ 19 ma. Since rise time is only 90 nanoseconds, input current may be pulsed to save power.
Outputs Dual analog channels, 2.5v 0.4v swing (total voltage swing rail to rail, aprox. .75v), 4ma DC signal. May feed direct to A-D front end of microprocessor.
Weight 2.25 grams
Size 12.7 mm diameter, 16 mm tall
