AS5048A and AS5048B Rotary SensorsAS5048A and AS5048B Rotary Sensors - ams’ AS5048A and AS5048B are 14-bit rotary position sensors (previously known as encoders) for absolute angular measurement and with a pulse width modulation (PWM) output over a full turn of 360° based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. These devices fit perfectly on axis applications where a simple 2-pole magnet rotates above or below the sensor IC. The zero position can be programmed into the devices simply with a SPI (AS5048A) or I²C command (AS5048B).  More...

AS5147P Rotary Position Sensor ICsAS5147P Rotary Position Sensor ICs - The AS5147P is a high-resolution rotary position sensor for high speed (up to 28 kRPM) angle measurement over a full 360° range. The 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.  More...
