News about Melexis

Programmable Hall sensor supports 2-wire operation September 17, 2014Programmable Hall sensor supports 2-wire operation Extending Melexis' innovative 'No PCB’ design concept, the new MLX92242 programmable Hall sensor has a built-in capacitor, so it can be implemented directly into a design without inclusion of supplementary board level components. Read more Infrared sensor array sees a wider field of view, with low-noise imaging September 11, 2014Infrared sensor array sees a wider field of view, with low-noise imaging Low cost infra-red (IR) arrays provide precise imaging data and detailed heat signatures for both static and dynamic objects can be derived, and find applications in security, automotive, building automation and consumer electronics. Read more Wireless charging reference design targets smartphones in cars August 27, 2014Wireless charging reference design targets smartphones in cars Chipmakers Freescale and Melexis have jointly developed a reference design for wireless charging of in-vehicle consumer electronic devices such as smartphones or tablets. The reference design combines both Bluetooth communications technology and Qi-certified transmit control along with associated control logics. Read more Pre-driver chip targets automotive high-current motor applications August 19, 2014Pre-driver chip targets automotive high-current motor applications The MLX83100 from Melexis is an N-FET pre-driver IC with low pin-count package (28 pins) and four digital inputs that provides a space-saving solution for high-current DC motors in automotive enviroments. Read more Time-of-flight sensor brings gesture recognition to car cockpit June 23, 2014Time-of-flight sensor brings gesture recognition to car cockpit Belgian chipmaker Melexis is utilizing the time-of-flight 3D motion sensing technology from software company SoftKinetics, also from Belgium, to implement a sensor chip that detects gestures to control several functions within the car. Thus, the Melexis chip enhances the range of basic technologies to be employed in Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs): Besides pusing buttons, turning knobs or issue spoken instructions to the vehicle, now HMI concepts also can include gestures. The technology will be used in the infotainment domain in the first place. Read more
