Triaxis® rotary position sensor IC - MLX90324

Product description

The MLX90324 is a Triaxis® rotary position sensor IC providing the angular position of a small dipole magnet rotating above the device surface (end-of-shaft magnet).

Thanks to an IMC on its surface, the monolithic device senses, in a contactless fashion, the horizontal component of the applied magnetic flux density.

This unique sensing principle applied to a rotary position sensor results into an impressive robustness of the angular position over the mechanical (airgap, off-axis) tolerances. The rotation of this horizontal component is sensed over a wide range (up to 360º) and processed by the on-chip Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to ultimately report the absolute angular position of the magnet either as a ratiometric analog output or as PWM signal or as a SAE-J2716/SENT (2007) telegram.

The output transfer characteristic is fully programmable (e.g. offset, gain, clamping levels, linearity, thermal drift, filtering, range, ...) to match any specific requirement through end-of-line calibration. The Melexis programming unit PTC-04 communicates and calibrates the device exclusively through the connector terminals (Vdd-Vss-Out).

The MLX90324 targets and is used in a myriad of non-contacting rotary position sensor applications which are frequently seen in automotive and industrial systems.

The MLX90324 is similar to the MLX90316 in many ways but its thermal stability and the SENT protocol make it suitable for under-the-hood applications.

The IC is available in single and dual redundant implementations to cost-effectively address the full range of applications, including safety critical sensing requirements.

Back-end calibration of magnetic position sensors

How to

This video explains the concept of the back-end calibration: a feature of our magnetic position sensors that allows you to compensate for non-linearity error in your application. Different methods of calibration and examples are presented. This will help you understand how to use the calibration and why you may need it.
