The OSEPP Compass Sensor Module is a 3-axis digital compass for low-field magnetic sensing. It utilizes the Honeywell HMC5883L state-of-the-art high resolution magneto-resistive sensors, an ASIC containing amplification, automatic degaussing strap drivers, offset cancellation, and a 12-bit ADC that enables a compass heading accuracy to within 1-2 degrees. The module uses the I²C interface for data communication. The I²C lines are packaged with the power and ground lines into a modular connector, which allows easy plug and play operation. There are two connectors on the module to enable daisy chaining of multiple I2C devices together. The OSEPP Compass Sensor Module is ideal for applications that require the measurement of both the direction and the magnitude of Earth's magnetic field, from milligauss to 8 gauss.
