MC6470 6-Axis eCompass Overview

The MC6470 is a 6-axis eCompass that consists of a 3-axis linear accelerometer and a 3-axis magnetic field sensor, both with an I2C digital interface, in a single 2x2mm package. By combining a high-precision magnetic sensor with a low-noise single-chip MEMS accelerometer, the MC6470 enables industry-leading, tilt-compensated compass directional accuracy of one degree or less, with appropriate attention to magnetic system design. The MC6470 also incorporates the mCube eMotion™ software which eases integration of compass functionality into the end product.

The MC6470 is ideal for applications needing to take advantage of high-precision directional pointing include map orientation, virtual reality data overlay, enhanced navigation, and gyroscope replacement.
