Code: Select all
#define MAG_GAUSS_PER_LSB 666.7f
#define SENSORS_GYRO_FS_CFG MPU6500_GYRO_FS_2000
sensorData.mag.x = (float)headingx / MAG_GAUSS_PER_LSB;
sensorData.mag.y = (float)headingy / MAG_GAUSS_PER_LSB;
sensorData.mag.z = (float)headingz / MAG_GAUSS_PER_LSB;
I search the datasheet of the AK8963 and find the 16bit ADC sensitivity is 0.15μT/LSB. I think the output equal "ADC value * sensitivity"
which equal "headingx / (1/0.15) = headingx / 6.667"

You might be on to something. I think this code originally comes from somewhere else so can't really answer why it is 666.7. I guess it hasn't caused a problem as it normally is the heading that is interesting.
