This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: SEN-10530

Replacement: SEN-10530. We are no longer carrying this breakout board but we do carry a breakout for the HMC5883L, which is a suitable replacement in most cases. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a breakout board for Honeywell's HMC5843, a 3-axis digital compass. Communication with the HMC5843 is simple and all done through an I2C interface. There is no on-board regulator, so a regulated voltage of 2.5-3.3VDC should be supplied.
The breakout board includes the HMC5843 sensor and all filtering capacitors as shown. The power and 2-wire interface pins are all broken out to a 0.1" pitch header.
Note: We found these in inventory and they work fine but we're no longer making them. We'll be selling them at a discount for a limited time but when they're gone, they're gone!
Dimensions: 0.5x0.5" (12.7x12.7mm)
