The MLX90392 is a 3D Magnetometer based on Melexis Triaxis Hall technology. Especially designed for low micropower applications, the MLX90392 features a power down current of 1.5uA, and operates on a 1.8V supply allowing to use it in cost-conscious consumer position applications such home alarm systems or gaming pads.
MLX90392 simplifies designs!
To begin with, it reduces bill-of-materials costs and saves PCB space. Measuring just 2 mm x 2.5 mm x 0.4 mm, the sensor features a UTDFN-8 ultra-thin flat no-lead 8-pin package to help designers tackle space-constrained applications. To continue, the MLX90392 internal parameter can be updated on the fly from the microcontroller I2C bus, thus eliminating the need for an extra pin. Simpler PCB can be achieved.
