Columbus Day first became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and became a federal holiday in 1937. However, people have celebrated Columbus’ voyage since the colonial period. In 1792, New York City and other U.S. cities celebrated the 300th anniversary of his landing in the New World. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison called upon the people of the United States to celebrate Columbus Day on the 400th anniversary of the event. During the four hundredth anniversary, in 1892, teachers, preachers, poets and politicians used Columbus Day rituals to teach ideals of patriotism. These patriotic rituals were framed around themes such as support for war, citizenship boundaries, the importance of loyalty to the nation, and celebrating social progress.


Hmc6352 Lrg

The HMC6352 Compass – Module is fully integrated and combines 2-axis magneto-resistive sensors
with the required analog, digital, microprocessor and algorithms
required for heading computation.

The HMC6352 Compass Module provides a direct heading angle and
includes internal calibration algorithms within its firmware. Stray
magnetic field protection and temperature compensation are also
included.

Features:

  • Small package size
  • Stray magnetic field protection
  • Temperature compensation
  • Internal calibration algorithm
  • Can run with 3.3V or 5V logic using i2c communication

Key Specifications:

  • Power requirements: 2.7 VDC to 5.2 VDC @ ~2 mA (@ 5V)
  • Communication: 2-Wire I2C Serial Interface (100 kbps max)
  • Dimensions: 0.46 x 0.59 x 0.54 in (11.7 x 14.9 x 13.65 mm)
  • Operating temp range: -4�F to +158�F (-20�C to +70�C)
