AS5600 Rotary SensorAS5600 Rotary Sensor - The AS5600 is an easy-to-program magnetic rotary position sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit analog or PWM output. This contactless system measures the absolute-angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. This AS5600 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.  More...
