FXOS8700 Breakout Board

Freescale’s FXOS8700CQ 6-axis sensor combines industry leading accelerometer and magnetometer sensors in a small 3 x 3 x 1.2 mm QFN plastic package. The 14-bit accelerometer and 16-bit magnetometer are combined with a high-performance ASIC to enable an eCompass solution capable of a typical orientation resolution of 0.1 degrees and sub 5 degree compass heading accuracy for most applications.

Applications include eCompass, enhanced user interface, augmented reality, and location based services (static geographic heading). Target products include smartphones, tablets, personal navigation devices, remote controls for smart TV’s, watches, gaming controllers, robotics, and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs).

It is great to have a simple breakout board to do some prototyping.  I am focused on the i2c implementation so have created an i2c version with and without a range extender.

Here is the version with the extender: OSH Park ~ FXOS8700 with Extender

Here is the version without the extender: OSH Park ~ FXOS8700 without Extender

Here is a link to GitHub where I have the EAGLE Files for these boards: chipmc/FXOS8700-i2c-Breakout-CAD-Files · GitHub

Thanks,  Chip
