App note: Input for magnetometer placement simulations

App note from Kionix on things to look for and placement evaluation before placing magnetometer on PCBs. Link here (PDF) Simulations of the magnetic field environment to provide magnetometer part placement recommendations need considerable technical information to assist the process. Magneto-static and magnetic noise information of the materials and magnetic field sources need to be […]

App note: Layout recommendations for PCBs using a magnetometer sensor

Another app note from NXP on PCB design guidelines when using magnetic sensitive sensors. Link here (PDF) Unlike accelerometer, pressure, and gyroscope MEMS sensors, which use mechanical sensing elements unaffected by electromagnetic components on the PCB, magnetometers are sensitive to the magnetic fields generated by other circuit components. The most common magnetic field sources are: […]

App note: Magnetometer placement in mobile devices

App note from Kionix about magnetometer integration challenges from the mobile equipment point of view, and gives guidelines for the mounting position of the magnetic sensor. Link here (PDF) Electronic devices contain many parts which can affect a magnetic sensor. When deciding the mounting position, it is necessary to consider the types of materials and […]

App note: Magnetometer placement in mobile devices

Correct magnetometer placement app note from Kionix. Link here (PDF) Electronic devices contain many parts which can affect a magnetic sensor. When deciding the mounting position, it is necessary to consider the types of materials and the amount of current carried in proximity of the magnetic sensor. Accuracy of an electronic compass depends upon getting […]
