AK8776 is a Hall effect latch which detects both vertical and horizontal (perpendicular and parallel to the marking side of the package) magnetic field at the same time and outputs the pulse (F) and rotational direction (D). AK8776 is for use in portable devices which uses rotational detection system or incremental pulse encoder such as jog dial utilized for input devices.
1.6 to 5.5V Operation
Low power operation : Average 90uA(typ.)@VDD=3V
Two outputs: F(Pulse count), D(Direction of rotation)
