Melexis rolls second-generation Triaxis sensors
The product roll-out embraces two sensors: The MLX90360 and the MLX90363. The company has fed lessons learned from six years of applications support and design wins into the design of the two chips for Linear, Rotary and 3D non-contact position sensing. Both devices are available in single and dual redundant implementations to cost-effectively address the full range of applications, including safety critical sensing requirements.
The MLX90360 provides analog or PWM output with fully programmable capabilities to simplify application development. Linear or rotary position sensing with direct, point-to-point, connection to the control electronics and in circuit “programming through the connector” highlight the value of the MLX90360
Universal, maximum flexibility for applications development can be accomplished with the MLX90363. Designed to be paired with an off-the-shelf microcontroller, the MLX90363 relies on SPI output communication. The range of position sensing applications are limitless and constrained only by the imagination of the designer. 3D, rotary, linear or even mixed mode implementations can be accomplished through embedded software in the customer's microcontroller. All internal raw and conditioned signals from the IMC (Integrated Magneto Concentrator) Triaxis sensor can be communicated over the SPI channel. This puts the Bx, By and Bz information directly accessible for processing by the embedded microcontroller. Data from the on chip temperature sensor and from the internal chip diagnostics can also be digitally transmitted. Programming happens through the same channel.
Sensing is the key to advanced control and next generation system evolution. Melexis Triaxis sensors make it possible to accomplish control and integration in ways previously impossible. Let us help you solve your microelectronic sensing challenges with our passion for mutual success.
