iSentek Inc. debuts the most compact three-axis AMR magnetometer for consumer electronic application
By: iSentek Inc.
Max Lai, Chairman/CEO of iSentek explains: "IST8305 is an MEMS-based IC integrating sensing circuits and computing circuits onto a single die. It adopts WLCSP package technology to further shrink device size. Current magnetometers in the market adopts multi-chip package, using multiple dies as sensing circuit and computing circuits are made by different process respectively. iSentek's propriety technology allows manufacturing various components of a magnetometer using common CMOS semiconductor process. Simplified process enables compact size and lower cost as well."
"IST8305 utilizes AMR magneto sensing technology and features low hysteresis performance."
IST8305 is a single chip three-axis magnetometer. Featured 5-pin WLCSP-BGA package, dimensions are length x width x height, 1.28 x 0.88 x 0.53mm3, respectively. It supports I2C slave interface, fast mode up to 400kHz. Maximum Output Data Rate is 100Hz and low hysteresis is <0.05%FS. Currently samples are available and mass production starts since May, 2016.
