Adapter Board for AS5116
The AS5116 Adapter Board is a small PCB allowing simple and quick testing or evaluation of the AS5116 magnetic position sensor without the need to build a test fixture or design an own PCB. The PCB can be connected either to an external microcontroller or to the USB I&P Box.
The connector, 2x5 pin header (not populated), is included to this kit and is required for power supply as well as UART and analog interface.

AS5116 Position Sensor Sin/Cos Output
The AS5116 is a contactless magnetic position sensor for accurate angular measurement over a full mechanical turn of 360°. Based on the Hall sensor technology, this device has a robust architecture that measures the orthogonal component of the flux density (Bz), over a full-turn rotation. To measure the angle, only a simple two-pole magnet rotating over the center of the package is required. The magnet can be placed above or below the device.
The absolute angle measurement provides an instant indication of the magnet’s angular position. The angle information is provided by means of buffered differential sine and cosine voltages. The AS5116 operates at a supply voltage of 5V or 3.3V. 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.
