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.

AS5172

The AS5172 is a magnetic position sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit PSI5 output according PSI5 specification Version 1.3 and 2.1. Based on a Hall sensor technology, this device measures the orthogonal component of the flux density (Bz) over a full-turn rotation and compensates for external stray magnetic fields with a robust architecture based on a 14-bit sensor array and analog front-end (AFE). A sub-range can programmed to achieve the best resolution for the application. To measure the angle, only a simple two-pole magnet rotating over the center of the package is required. The magnet may be placed above or below the device. The absolute angle measurement provides an instant indication of the magnet’s angular position. The AS5172 operates up to a voltage of 16.5V and is protected against overvoltage up to +20V. In addition, the supply pins are protected against reverse polarity up to – 18V.

AS5200L

The AS5200L is an easy to program stacked dual die magnetic rotary position sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit I2C or PWM output. This contactless system measures the absolute angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. This AS5200L is designed for contactless potentiometer applications and its robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields. The industry-standard I2C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer. By default the output represents a range from 0 to 360 degrees. It is also possible to define a smaller range to the output by programming a zero angle (start position) and a maximum angle (stop position). The AS5200L is also equipped with a smart low power mode feature to automatically reduce the power consumption. This device is designed for automotive applications and is AEC-Q100 grade 1 qualified. To enable safety-critical applications it has two separate sensor dies in one MLF-16 (5x5) package with wettable flanks.

AS5600L

The AS5600L is an easy to program magnetic rotary position sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit I2C or PWM output. This contactless system measures the absolute angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. This AS5600L is designed for contactless potentiometer applications and its robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields. The industry-standard I2C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer. By default the output represents a range from 0 to 360 degrees. It is also possible to define a smaller range to the output by programming a zero angle (start position) and a maximum angle (stop position). The AS5600L is also equipped with a smart low power mode feature to automatically reduce the power consumption. An input pin (DIR) selects the polarity of the output with regard to rotation direction. If DIR is connected to ground, the output value increases with clockwise rotation. If DIR is connected to VDD, the output value increases with counterclockwise rotation. The AS5600L is available in a standard SOIC-8 package and in a WL-CSP for applications requiring small-sized sensing solution with a size of 2.07mm x 2.63mm x 0.6mm. Both variants are qualified for a temperature range from -40°C to 125°C.

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.

AS5013

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).

AS5306

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.
