6. Function Explanation
6.1. Power States
When VDD and VID are turned on from Vdd=OFF (0V) and Vid=OFF (0V), all registers in AK09911 are initialized by
POR circuit and AK09911 transits to Power-down mode.
All the states in the table below can be set, although the transition from state 2 to state 3 and the transition from state 3 to
state 2 are prohibited.

It doesn’t affect external interface.Digital
input pins other than SCL and SDA pin
should be fixed to “L”(0V).
OFF (0V)
It doesn’t affect external interface.
OFF(0V)
It doesn’t affect external interface. Digital
input pins other than SCL and SDA pin
should be fixed to “L”(0V).
ON
6.2. Reset Functions
When the power state is ON, always keep Vid≤Vdd.
Power-on reset (POR) works until Vdd reaches to the operation effective voltage (about 1.1V: reference value for design)
on power-on sequence. After POR is deactivated, all registers are initialized and transits to Power-down mode.
When Vdd=2.4 to 3.6V, POR circuit and VID monitor circuit are active. When Vid=0V, AK09911 is in reset status and it
consumes the current of reset state (IDD4).
AK09911 has four types of reset;
(1) Power on reset (POR)
When Vdd rise is detected, POR circuit operates, and AK09911 is reset.
(2) VID monitor
When VID is turned OFF, AK09911 is reset.
(3) Reset pin (RSTN)
AK09911 is reset by Reset pin. When Reset pin is not used, connect to VID.
(4) Soft reset
AK09911 is reset by setting SRST bit. When AK09911 is reset, all registers are initialized and AK09911 transits to
Power-down mode.

Transits to Power-down mode by writing
MODE[4:0]=“00000”.
Continuous measurement mode 3
Sensor is measured periodically in 50Hz.
Transits to Power-down mode by writing
MODE[4:0]=“00000”.
Continuous measurement mode 4
Sensor is measured periodically in 100Hz.
Transits to Power-down mode by writing
MODE[4:0]=“00000”.
Self-test mode
Sensor is self-tested and the result is output. Transits
to Power-down mode automatically.
Transits automatically
MODE[4:0]=“11111”
MODE[4:0]=“00000”
Fuse ROM access mode
Turn on the needed to read out Fuse ROM. Transits
to Power-down mode by writing
MODE[4:0]=“00000”.
Figure 6.1. Operation mode
When power is turned ON, AK09911 is in Power-down mode. When a specified value is set to MODE[4:0], AK09911
transits to the specified mode and starts operation. When user wants to change operation mode, transit to Power-down mode
first and then transit to other modes. After Power-down mode is set, at least 100 µs (Twat) is needed before setting another
mode

When Single measurement mode (MODE[4:0]=“00001”) is set, magnetic sensor measurement is started. After magnetic
sensor measurement and signal processing is finished, measurement magnetic data is stored to measurement data registers
(HXL to HZH), then AK09911 transits to Power-down mode automatically. On transition to Power-down mode,
MODE[4:0] turns to “00000”. At the same time, DRDY bit in ST1 register turnes to “1”. This is called “Data Ready”.
When any of measurement data register (HXL to TMPS) or ST2 register is read, DRDY bit turnes to “0”. It remains “1” on
transition from Power-down mode to another mode. (Figure 6.2. )
When sensor is measuring (Measurement period), measurement data registers (HXL to TMPS) keep the previous data.
Therefore, it is possible to read out data even in measurement period. Data read out in measurement period are previous
data.(Figure 6.3. )

6.4.3. Continuous Measurement Mode 1, 2, 3 and 4
When Continuous measurement mode 1 (MODE[4:0]=“00010”), 2 (MODE[4:0]=“00100”), 3 (MODE[4:0]=“00110”) or 4
(MODE[4:0]=“01000”) is set, magnetic sensor measurement is started periodically at 10 Hz, 20 Hz, 50 Hz or 100 Hz
respectively. After magnetic sensor measurement and signal processing is finished, measurement magnetic data is stored to
measurement data registers (HXL to HZH) and all circuits except for the minimum circuit required for counting cycle
length are turned off (PD). When the next measurement timing comes, AK09911 wakes up automatically from PD and
starts measurement again.
Continuous measurement mode ends when Power-down mode (MODE[4:0]=“00000”) is set. It repeats measurement until
Power-down mode is set.
When Continuous measurement mode 1 (MODE[4:0]=“00010”), 2 (MODE[4:0]=“00100”), 3 (MODE[4:0]=“00110”) or 4
(MODE[4:0]=“01000”) is set again while AK09911 is already in Continuous measurement mode, a new measurement starts.

6.4.3.2. Data Ready
When measurement data is stored and ready to be read, DRDY bit in ST1 register turnes to “1”. This is called “Data Ready”.
When measurement is performed correctly, AK09911 becomes Data Ready on transition to PD after measurement.
6.4.3.3. Normal Read Sequence
(1) Check Data Ready or not by polling DRDY bit of ST1 register
 DRDY: Shows Data Ready or not. Not when “0”, Data Ready when “1”.
 DOR: Shows if any data has been skipped before the current data or not. There are no skipped data when “0”,
there are skipped data when “1”.
(2) Read measurement data
When any of measurement data register (HXL to TMPS) or ST2 register is read, AK09911 judges that data reading
is started. When data reading is started, DRDY bit and DOR bit turnes to “0”.
(3) Read ST2 register (required)
 HOFL: Shows if magnetic sensor is overflowed or not. “0” means not overflowed, “1” means overflowed.
When ST2 register is read, AK09911 judges that data reading is finished. Stored measurement data is protected
during data reading and data is not updated. By reading ST2 register, this protection is released. It is required to read
ST2 register after data reading.

When Nth data was not read before (N+1)th measurement ends, Data Ready remains until data is read. In this case, a set of
measurement data is skipped so that DOR bit turnes to “1”.
When data reading started after Nth measurement ended and did not finish reading before (N+1)th measurement ended, Nth
measurement data is protected to keep correct data. In this case, a set of measurement data is skipped and not stored so that
DOR bit turnes to “1”.

6.4.3.7. Magnetic Sensor Overflow
AK09911 has the limitation for measurement range that the sum of absolute values of each axis should be smaller than 4912
μT.
|X|+|Y|+|Z| < 4912 μT
When the magnetic field exceeded this limitation, data stored at measurement data are not correct. This is called Magnetic
Sensor Overflow.
When magnetic sensor overlow occurs, HOFL bit turns to “1”. When the next measurement starts, it returns to “0”.
6.4.4. Self-test Mode
Self-test mode is used to check if the magnetic sensor is working normally.
When Self-test mode (MODE[4:0]=“10000”) is set, magnetic field is generated by the internal magnetic source and
magnetic sensor is measured. Measurement data is stored to measurement data registers (HXL to HZH), then AK09911
transits to Power-down mode automatically.
Data read sequence and functions of read-only registers in Self-test mode is the same as Single measurement mode.
6.4.4.1. Self-test Sequence
(1) Set Power-down mode. (MODE[4:0]=“00000”)
(2) Set Self-test mode. (MODE[4:0]=“10000”)
(3) Check Data Ready or not by polling DRDY bit of ST1 register
When Data Ready, proceed to the next step.
(4) Read measurement data (HXL to HZH)
6.4.4.2. Self-test Judgment
When measurement data read by the above sequence is in the range of following table after sensitivity adjustment (refer to
8.3.11), AK09911 is working normally.
Criteria
HX[15:0]
-30 ≤ HX ≤ +30
HY[15:0]
-30 ≤ HY ≤ +30
HZ[15:0]
-400 ≤ HZ ≤ -50
6.4.5. Fuse ROM Access Mode
Fuse ROM access mode is used to read Fuse ROM data. Sensitivity adjustment data for each axis is stored in fuse ROM.
Set Fuse ROM Access mode (MODE[4:0]=“11111”) before reading Fuse ROM data. When Fuse ROM Access mode is set,
circuits required for reading fuse ROM are turned on.
After reading fuse ROM data, set Power-down mode (MODE[4:0]=“00000”) before the transition to another mode.

7. Serial Interface
The I2C bus interface of AK09911 supports the Standard mode (100 kHz max.), the Fast mode (400 kHz max.) and the
High-speed mode (Hs-mode, 2.5 MHz max.).
7.1. Data Transfer
To access AK09911 on the bus, generate a start condition first.
Next, transmit a one-byte slave address including a device address. At this time, AK09911 compares the slave address with
its own address. If these addresses match, AK09911 generates an acknowledgement, and then executes READ or WRITE
instruction. At the end of instruction execution, generate a stop condition.
7.1.1. Change of Data
A change of data on the SDA line must be made during “Low” period of the clock on the SCL line. When the clock signal
on the SCL line is “High”, the state of the SDA line must be stable. (Data on the SDA line can be changed only when the
clock signal on the SCL line is “Low”.)
During the SCL line is “High”, the state of data on the SDA line is changed only when a start condition or a stop condition
is generated.

If the SDA line is driven to “Low” from “High” when the SCL line is “High”, a start condition is generated. Every
instruction starts with a start condition.
If the SDA line is driven to “High” from “Low” when the SCL line is “High”, a stop condition is generated. Every

7.1.3. Acknowledge
The IC that is transmitting data releases the SDA line (in the “High” state) after sending 1-byte data.
The IC that receives the data drives the SDA line to “Low” on the next clock pulse. This operation is referred as
acknowledge. With this operation, whether data has been transferred successfully can be checked.
AK09911 generates an acknowledge after reception of a start condition and slave address.
When a WRITE instruction is executed, AK09911 generates an acknowledge after every byte is received.
When a READ instruction is executed, AK09911 generates an acknowledge then transfers the data stored at the specified
address. Next, AK09911 releases the SDA line then monitors the SDA line. If a master IC generates an acknowledge
instead of a stop condition, AK09911 transmits the 8bit data stored at the next address. If no acknowledge is generated,
AK09911 stops data transmission.

Figure 7.4. Slave Address
The first byte including a slave address is transmitted after a start condition, and an IC to be accessed is selected from the
ICs on the bus according to the slave address.
When a slave address is transferred, the IC whose device address matches the transferred slave address generates an
acknowledge then executes an instruction. The 8th bit (least significant bit) of the first byte is a R/W bit.
When the R/W bit is set to “1“, READ instruction is executed. When the R/W bit is set to “0“, WRITE instruction is
executed.

7.2. WRITE Instruction
When the R/W bit is set to “0”, AK09911 performs write operation.
In write operation, AK09911 generates an acknowledge after receiving a start condition and the first byte (slave address)
then receives the second byte. The second byte is used to specify the address of an internal control register and is based on
the MSB-first configuration.

Figure 7.6. Control Data
AK09911 can write multiple bytes of data at a time.
After reception of the third byte (control data), AK09911 generates an acknowledge then receives the next data. If
additional data is received instead of a stop condition after receiving one byte of data, the address counter inside the LSI
chip is automatically incremented and the data is written at the next address.
The address is incremented from 00H to 18H, from 30H to 32H, or from 60H to 62H. When the address is 00H to 18H, the
address is incremented 00H  01H  02H  03H  10H  11H ...  18H,and the address goes back to 00H after
18H. When the address is 30H to 32H, the address goes back to 30H after 32H. When the address is 60H to 62H, the
address goes back to 60H after 62H.
Actual data is written only to Read/Write registers (refer to Table 8.2. ).

7.3. READ Instruction
When the R/W bit is set to “1”, AK09911 performs read operation.
If a master IC generates an acknowledge instead of a stop condition after AK09911 transfers the data at a specified address,
the data at the next address can be read.
Address can be 00H to 18H, 30H to 32H, and 60H to 62H. When the address is 00H to 18H, the address is incremented 00H
 01H  02H  03H  10H  11H ...  18H,and the address goes back to 00H after 18H. When the address is 30H
to 32H, the address goes back to 30H after 32H. When the address is 60H to 62H, the address goes back to 60H after 62H.
AK09911 supports one byte read and multiple byte read.
7.3.1. One Byte READ
AK09911 has an address counter inside the LSI chip. In current address read operation, the data at an address specified by
this counter is read.
The internal address counter holds the next address of the most recently accessed address.
For example, if the address most recently accessed (for READ instruction) is address “n”, and a current address read
operation is attempted, the data at address “n+1” is read.
In one byte read operation, AK09911 generates an acknowledge after receiving a slave address for the READ instruction
(R/W bit=“1”). Next, AK09911 transfers the data specified by the internal address counter starting with the next clock pulse,
then increments the internal counter by one. If the master IC generates a stop condition instead of an acknowledge after
AK09911 transmits one byte of data, the read operation stops.

Figure 7.8. One Byte READ
7.3.2. Multiple Byte READ
By multiple byte read operation, data at an arbitrary address can be read.
The multiple byte read operation requires to execute WRITE instruction as dummy before a slave address for the READ
instruction (R/W bit=“1”) is transmitted. In random read operation, a start condition is first generated then a slave address
for the WRITE instruction (R/W bit=“0”) and a read address are transmitted sequentially.
After AK09911 generates an acknowledge in response to this address transmission, a start condition and a slave address for
the READ instruction (R/W bit=“1”) are generated again. AK09911 generates an acknowledge in response to this slave
address transmission. Next, AK09911 transfers the data at the specified address then increments the internal address counter
by one. If the master IC generates a stop condition instead of an acknowledge after data is transferred, the read operation
stops.

7.4. High-speed Mode (Hs-mode)
AK09911 supports the Hs-mode.
Hs-mode can only commence after the following conditions (all of which are in Fast/Standard-mode):
 START condition (S)
 8-bit master code (00001XXX)
 not-acknowledge bit (Ā)
The diagram below shows data flow of the Hs-mode.
After start condition, feed master code 00001XXX for transfer to the Hs-mode. And then AK09911 feeds back
not-acknowledge bit and swich over to circuit for the Hs-mode between times t1 and tH. AK09911 can communicate at the
Hs-mode from next START condition. At time tFS, AK09911 switchs its internal circuit from the Hs-mode to the First
mode with the STOP condition (P). This transfer completes in the bus free time (tBUF).

HOFL: Magnetic sensor overflow
“0”: Normal
“1”: Magnetic sensor overflow occurred
In Single measurement mode, Continuous measurement mode 1, 2, 3, 4, and Self-test mode, magnetic sensor may overflow
even though measurement data regiseter is not saturated. In this case, measurement data is not correct and HOFL bit turns to
“1”. When next measurement stars, it returns to “0”. Refer to 6.4.3.6 for detailed information.
ST2 register has a role as data reading end register, also. When any of measurement data register (HXL to TMPS) is read in
Continuous measurement mode 1, 2, 3, 4, it means data reading start and taken as data reading until ST2 register is read.
Therefore, when any of measurement data is read, be sure to read ST2 register at the end.

Sensitivity adjustment data for each axis is stored to fuse ROM on shipment.
ASAX[7:0]: Magnetic sensor X-axis sensitivity adjustment value
ASAY[7:0]: Magnetic sensor Y-axis sensitivity adjustment value
ASAZ[7:0]: Magnetic sensor Z-axis sensitivity adjustment value

How to adjust sensitivity
The sensitivity adjustment is done by the equation below,
 ASA 
Hadj = H × 
+ 1
 128

where H is the measurement data read out from the measurement data register, ASA is the sensitivity adjustment
value, and Hadj is the adjusted measurement data.
