The Hall Magnetic Camera HMC9076 is a platform for building semi-custom magnetic-field mapping systems.
The key system features are:
- Multiple Hall sensors provide high-precision, simultaneous 3-axis field measurements at multiple points.
- USB provides both system power and data communication.
- An optional thermal sensor allows for temperature compensation or regulation.
- An optional low-noise voltage regulator provides optimal measurement stability.
- Firmware and an associated software API provide straightforward and flexible software control.
The platform consists of:
- Write and read SPI data to/from selected device
- Synchronise acquisitions
- Loop-back test of USB communication
- Retrieve hardware/firmware versions
- Get device information
- Read or write arbitrary data, e.g. calibration tables, to ROM
- LabVIEW API to access all firmware features
- MagVector MV2 register access
- Programming examples
