  • 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.

    Key Features

    • 3 magnetic field channels
    • ±50 gauss magnetic dynamic range
    • 16-bit data output
    • SPI/I2C serial interfaces
    • Analog supply voltage 1.71 V to 3.6 V
    • Selectable power mode/resolution
    • Single measurement mode
    • Programmable interrupt generator
    • Embedded self-test
    • Embedded temperature sensor
    • ECOPACK®, RoHS and “Green” compliant
