App note: Digital compass reference design

Posted on Saturday, June 9th, 2012 in app notes by DP

A PIC18F2520-based digital compass using magneto-resistive sensors to measure the magnetic field in 3-axies:

This application note will focus on a simple, low-cost, hand-held digital compass design using a Microchip PIC18F2520 microcontroller. This compass application can be  integrated into your own design, or as a building block in an advanced navigation tracking device similar to one you would find in a sporting goods store or automobile.
