Compass on a chip Answered

Does anyone know what I need to have a Compass on a chip? The idea is for a horizontal ring of LEDs with the northern LED lit. If the ring turns, the light will chase towards the north most point on the ring. I've found single and dual pole compass chips, but I admit a lot of ignorance about chips in general. Anyone have a shopping list for such a project?

well, all compass chips will require that you have some sort of decoder the compass chip will tell you which way is north, and the decoder chip will decode the message sent by the chip, so um that's all that i can really say
