Philips Semiconductors APPLICATION NOTE Electronic Compass Design using KMZ 51 and KMZ 52 AN 00022

  • Philips Semiconductors


The KMZ51 and KMZ52 from Philips Semiconductors are magnetic field sensors, dedicated to compass applications. Both sensors rely on the magnetoresistive effect and provide the required sensitivity and linearity to measure the weak magnetic field of the earth. While the KMZ51 is a single axis field sensor, the KMZ52 comprises a two-dimensional field sensor… (More)
