Electronic compass modules from Honeywell Microelectronics that are suited for land, sea, and airborne applications


Honeywell's Digital Compassing SolutionsHoneywell’s extensive experience in fabricating magneto-resistive sensors has evolved into the development of electronic compass modules that are suited for land, sea, and airborne applications. Honeywell offers a complete line of compass modules. Honeywell’s HMR compass modules offer high accuracy compassing solutions.

The HMR3300 compass solution is similar in size and board layout to the HMR3200. The HMR3300 adds a 2-axis accelerometer for enhanced performance up to plus or minus 60 degree tilt range.

The HMR3400 compass solution is a smaller-size version of the HMR3300 in a 0.6 by 1.5 inch PCB. The HMR3400 also offers lower power consumption.

The HMR3000 is an electronic compass module that provides heading, pitch, and roll output for attitude reference systems. Honeywell’s solid-state, magneto-resistive sensors make this strap-down compass both rugged and reliable.

Honeywell’s HMR3500 is a three-axis digital compass module with azimuth accuracy of 1 degree with 0.1 degree resolution and 0.5 degree repeatability, with a title range of plus or minus 80 degrees.

The HMC6343 is a three-axis tilt compensated compass module in a 9 x 9 x 1.9mm LCC surface mount package. The HMC6343 includes three-axis magnetoresistive and a three-axis accelerometer to provide a heading accuracy of about 2.5 degrees over tilt.
