Accelerometer and compass combined in a single device 3 magnetic field channels and 3 acceleration channels ±1.3 to ±8.1 gauss magnetic field full-scale and ±2g/±4g/±8g/±16g selectable full-scale I2C serial bus interface; 16-bit data output Two independent programmable interrupt generators for free-fall and motion detection
Compass Click is an add-on board in mikroBUS form factor. It features an LSM303DLHC ultra-compact high-performance e-compass module. It includes a specific sensing element and an IC interface capable of measuring both linear acceleration (full-scale of ±2g/±4g/±8g/±16g) and magnetic field (from ±1.3 to ±8.1 Gauss full-scale) and provides a 16-bit data output through I2C interface. Readings received from the IC can be processed and used to determine the Earth's magnetic north pole. This board is ideal for compensated compass use, position detection, map rotation, pedometer, display orientation, etc.
Note: This board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, these mikromedia shields, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
