Digital output magnetic sensor: ultra-low power high performance 3-axis magnetometer

The LIS2MDL is an ultra-low-power, high-performance 3-axis digital magnetic sensor.

The LIS2MDL has a magnetic field dynamic range of ±50 gauss.

The LIS2MDL includes an I2C serial bus interface that supports standard, fast mode, fast mode plus, and high-speed (100 kHz, 400 kHz, 1 MHz, and 3.4 MHz) and an SPI serial standard interface.

The device can be configured to generate an interrupt signal for magnetic field detection.

The LIS2MDL is available in a plastic land grid array package (LGA) and is guaranteed to operate over an extended temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C.
