General description

The AS5013 is an absolute position sensor for miniature joystick applications with maximum strokes of +/-2.0mm in x- and y-direction based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure xy-movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet. The absolute xy-position is measured with a resolution of 8 bit = 256 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I²C).

With two decades of magnetic sensor system know-how, we have broad experience in selecting the most suitable magnets. ams experts recommend the following magnet suppliers.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Remote control
  • Gaming device
  • Miniature joystick
