This is a fully integrated compass module that combines the Honeywell HMC6352 2-axis magneto-resistive sensors with the required analog and digital support circuits, microprocessor and algorithms for heading computation.

It comes assembled with a 4-pin male header soldered on.

The Compass Sensor is fully integrated with the Antipasto Arduino IDE and can provide compass headings in degrees over Arduino serial.
