There is increasing demand for a sensing function to monitor an object’s status in remote locations as IoT products are expected to grow in the market.
AKM has developed the AK09970N, a tri-axis magnetic sensor that is able to detect magnetic signals in X, Y, and, Z directions. The AK09970N supports wide measurement range with high resolution in tri-axis detection and captures magnetic fields in three dimensions.
With these abilities, it is great device for controlling the direction of security cameras and connected home, (smart home, smart house), smart locks, along with door and window open/close detection.
Conventional tri-axis magnetic sensors have been used for position tracking applications. However, there are cases when sufficient performance is not possible due to magnetic field noise. World class ultra-low noise tri-axis sensing from the AK09940 resolves this problem, increasing magnetic position tracking accuracy for AR and VR.
The AK09940 is ideal for magnetic particle testing and metal contamination detection with triaxial magnetic measuring, which measures wet field, small changes, and distortion in magnetic-fields with high precision. In addition, the AK09940 has very low power consumption current suitable for triaxial measurement in wearable and IoT devices with small batteries.
