Description

The AK09970N is a digital output 3D magnetic sensor that can select high resolution setting and wide measurement range setting.
The AK09970N has a high sensitivity setting of 36mT on tri-axis.  It is able to measure a wide range of magnetic field from microtesla to millitesla such as from geomagnetic to a magnet since it has high measurement resolution of 1.1μT / LSB in high sensitivity mode. In addition, wide range setting of 101mT can be achieved via the Z axis.

Key Features

  • Low-power Consumption when Battery Life is Critical
    The AK09970N can operate using only a few μA, thus consuming a very low current that satisfies a demand of IoT products, (Refer to the Specification Table). It contributes to a long battery life of a product that needs constant acquisition of sensor data to monitor an object’s status.
  • Magnetic Field Output (Digital)/ Data Ready Alert (DRDY bit)
    The AK09970N measures magnetic field on all tri-axis via intermittent drive and outputs the result as digital data, (supporting I²C/SPI communications).
    It outputs a Data Ready alert to the dedicated register when the measurement data is updated. (0.25/0.5/1/10/20/15/100Hz interval modes or single measurement mode is selectable for intermittent drive options.)
  • Magnetic Event Interrupt Function
    The AK09970N has magnetic event interrupt pins. Two thresholds can be programmed for each axis, (setting the resolution equal to the measuring resolution). When a magnetic field that exceeds the threshold is sent, the AK09970N outputs a “Magnetic Event” interrupt to registers or external output pins. The magnetic event that causes an interrupt output that can be selected freely by setting a register. (Data Ready alert mentioned in 3 can also be output from an interrupt pin). Two interrupt pins are available for magnetic event: the INT pin for push-pull output and the ODIN pin for open-drain output. Therefore, the output format can be selected depending on the customer’s product.

Applications

  •                                 IoT, Security Applications, (Door, Window open/close detection), Monitoring Applications for Factory Equipment, etc.
