It is a module that integrates a measure sensor for air pressure with high precision, low power and high accuracy and a very accurate and reliable magnetic compass. On board there are, the known pressure sensor Bosch BMP180, which has now become a standard widely used in these specific modules for the extreme small size and high reliability it offers and the famous 3-axis magnetometer manufactured by Honeywell, model HMC598 , which offers an accuracy of no less than 1 ° on the measurement taken. The module is designed for use with a large variety of microcontrollers using communication through the I2C bus, it lends itself therefore to be managed handled by Arduino and many other development kit.
