Melexis Announces Next-generation Position Sensor IC
Melexis has announced a next-generation monolithic magnetic sensor family, consisting of the MLX90371 and MLX90372, which provides robust absolute position sensing for automotive applications including powertrain actuators, pedals, and gear shifters.
Both new devices consist of a Triaxis Hall magnetic front end, an analog to digital signal conditioner, a DSP for advanced signal processing and an output stage driver. Due to the Integrated Magneto Concentrator (IMC) they are sensitive to magnetic flux in three planes (X, Y & Z). This facilitates the decoding of the absolute rotary or linear position of any moving magnet, enabling the design of non-contact position sensors.
