PNI Sensor Corporation, the world’s foremost expert in precision location, motion tracking, and fusion of sensor systems into real-world applications, today announced the introduction of the PNI 3-Axis Magnetometer Breakout Board. Now developers, hobbyists and makers can evaluate a high-quality magnetic sensor and prototype their designs at a low cost.
The new 3-Axis Magnetometer Breakout Board includes PNI’s RM3100 3-axis geomagnetic sensors and MagI2C ASIC controller mounted on a PCB, to provide a complete magnetic-field sensing module. It incorporates both I2C and SPI interfaces for system design flexibility. This breakout board easily connects to Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other microcontroller boards. The cornerstone of the breakout board is PNI’s RM3100 geomagnetic sensor, which is the highest-performance magnetic sensor in its class. The RM3100 incorporates proprietary magneto-inductive technology that has more than 30 times the sensitivity of other magnetic sensors and is stable over temperature fluctuations.
“PNI’s geomagnetic sensor technology provides high-resolution, low-power consumption, large signal noise immunity, a large dynamic range, and high sampling rates,” said Daniel Delsuc, Field Applications Engineer at PNI Sensor Corporation. “Measurements are stable over temperature and inherently free from offset drift, making our 3-Axis Magnetometer Breakout Board the ideal choice not only for prototyping high-volume solutions, but also for makers and hobbyists and lower-volume applications.”
Pricing and Availability
The PNI 3-Axis Magnetometer Breakout Board is available now for $20.
