Devantech CMPS14 - Tilt Compensated Compass Module

The CMPS14 is our 5th generation tilt compensated compass. Employing a 3-axis magnetometer, a 3-axis gyro and a 3-axis accelerometer. At the core of the module is the superb BNO080 running algorithms to remove the errors caused by tilting of the PCB. Powered from 3.3-5V @18mA the compass outputs the bearing reading via serial or I2C interface.

The CMPS14 module is the 5th generation tilt compensated compass from Devantech. Employing a 3-axis magnetometer, 3 axis gyro and a 3-axis accelerometer and a powerful Kalman filter, the CMPS14 has been designed to remove the errors caused by tilting of the PCB.

The CMPS14 produces a result of 0-3599 representing 0-359.9 or 0 to 255. The output of the three sensors measuring x, y and z components of the magnetic field, together with the pitch and roll are used to calculate the bearing, each of these components are also made available in their raw form.

Examples of using the CMPS14 module with a wide range of popular controllers. The CMPS14 module requires a power supply at  3.3 - 5v and draws a nominal 18mA of current. There are two ways of getting the bearing from the module. A serial interface or an I2C interface
