Angle Position On-Axis

The magnetic rotary position sensor product family detects the absolute angular orientation of an on-axis two-pole magnet rotating over the center of the IC. The absolute angular position can be provided in various formats, including PWM, ABI and UVW, or directly read through the host interface. According to the application’s requirements, resolutions from 8-bit up to 14-bit are available. This technology can be employed in high-accuracy angle position detection, high-speed rotation systems and brushless DC motor control. Any rotary magnetic position sensor can replace either absolute or incremental optical sensors, other magnetic and inductive technologies, potentiometers or magnetic switches.

The AS5145H is a contactless magnetic rotary position sensor for accurate angular measurement over a full turn of 360° and over an extended ambient temperature range of -40°C to 150°C. The absolute angle measurement provides instant indication of the magnet’s angular position with a resolution of 0.0879° = 4096 positions per revolution via a serial bit stream and as a PWM signal.


The AS5147P is a high-resolution rotary position sensor for high speed (up to 28krpm) angle measurement over a full 360 degree range. This new position sensor is equipped with a revolutionary integrated dynamic angle error compensation (DAEC™) with almost 0 latency. The robust design of the device suppresses the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic field. A standard 4-wire SPI serial interface allows a host microcontroller to read 14-bit absolute angle position data from the AS5147P and to program non-volatile settings without a dedicated programmer. Incremental movements are indicated on a set of ABI signals with a maximum resolution of 4096 steps / 1024 pulses per revolution. The product is defined as SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) according ISO26262 including FMEDA, safety manual and third party qualification.


The AS5171 is a high-resolution angular position sensor for precise absolute angle measurement. The AS5171 is available with an analog output interface (AS5171A) or a digital output interface (AS5171B). The AS5171A and AS5171B are available in a SIP package (system in package). The package has integrated the AS5171 sensor die together with the decoupling capacitors necessary to pass system level ESD and EMC requirements. No additional components and PCB on the sensor side is needed. The product is defined as SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) according to ISO26262.

Linear Position

The linear magnetic position sensor product family measures the linear movement of a multi-pole magnetic strip. Circular multi-pole magnetic rings can also be used in rotary incremental rotation off-axis applications. This high precision product family allows the user to detect linear movement with a resolution as fine as 0.5μm. All products are aimed at applications which require extreme precision, accuracy, dynamic range and ultra-low power consumption.

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).


The AS5306 is an incremental position sensor for linear and rotary off-axis applications based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure position and motion a multi-pole magnet strip or ring has to be used. There are 160 pulses per 2.4 mm pole pair length on the standardized quadrature output interface with an index pulse (=ABI-interface) with a maximum speed of 15m/s.
