Compass 2-Axis Integrated Solution - HMC6352

The Honeywell HMC6352 is a fully integrated compass module that combines 2-axis magneto-resistive sensors with the required analog and digital support circuits, and algorithms for heading computation. Rumor is that Honeywell took all the tricks up their sleeve and created the HMC6352 using the HMC1052 core, a Microchip PIC core, and a combination of MOSFET and OpAmp circuitry. This chip is simple to use and gives you magnetic heading down to the last degree.

Compass 2-Axis Integrated Solution - HMC6352 Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
