Asahi Kasei Microdevices Device Support
The 3D Hall 7 Click Board™ is a very accurate, magnetic field sensing Click Board™, used to measure the intensity of the magnetic field across three perpendicular axes. It is equipped with the AK09970N, a high sensitivity 3D magnetic sensor IC, from Asahi KASEI. This IC has a separate Hall sensing element on each axis, which allows a very accurate and reliable measurement of the magnetic field intensity in a 3D space, offering a basis for accurate positional calculations.
The AK09970N magnetic sensor IC offers two industry-standard interfaces: both I2C and SPI communication protocols are supported by this IC. This sensor IC also features a powerful programmable interrupt engine with configurable polarity, switch event, and more.
