Hello, I am using the digilent CMPS2 module which uses the Memsic MMC34160PJ magnetometer.
In the datasheet of chip CMPS2 there is a formula with actan(x/y)*180/pi.
Is it right to use for x and y only the LSB (8 bits) multiplied with the number 0,48.... as shown in the datasheet in point 1?
It‘s clear that I only get values between 0 and 90 degrees because the sensor delivers only unsigned values.
When I use atan2 I get values between 0 and 180 degrees.
I know it would be easier if I had signed data. But unfortunately the sensor delivers only unsigned values.
How is such a conversion form of unsigned magnometer data 0 to 360 degrees possible?
