SparkFun Qwiic Magnetometer - MLX90393

Description: The MLX90393 is a tri-axial magnetic sensor capable of sensing very small fields (like the Earth’s magnetic field) while behaving as one would want and expect during saturation in larger fields (like a nearby magnet). It turns out the favourite HMC5883L and other such sensors that are intended for compass applications have a low dynamic range but also strange and undefined behaviour in large fields. Ted Yapo did an incredibly extensive characterization of the sensor over on Hackaday. He published his controlled experiments testing a few sensors and found the MLX90393 to be superior.

The MLX90393 can be used as a compass sensor but also works well as a non-contact controller (joystick), flow meter (with magnetic impeller), or a linear actuator positional sensor.

We do not plan to regularly produce SparkX products so get them while they’re hot!

Experimental Product: SparkX products are rapidly produced to bring you the most cutting-edge technology as it becomes available. These products are tested but come with no guarantees. Live technical support is not available for SparkX products. Head on over to our forum for support or to ask a question.

This is an update to our original MLX90393 breakout board, now with Qwiic connectors! The Qwiic system enables fast and solderless connection between popular platforms and various sensors and actuators. You can read more about the Qwiic system here.

Features:

  • Dual Qwiic connectors for fast connection and optional daisy-chaining
  • Resolution: 0.161µT
  • Max full scale resolution: 44,000µT
  • Requires 3.3V
  • I2C or SPI interface (selectable jumper)
  • User selectable I2C address supports up to four sensors on the I2C bus at a time.
