The MLX90316 Rotary Position Sensor IC is monolithic sensor IC featuring the Triaxis™ Hall technology. Conventional planar Hall technology is only sensitive to the flux density applied orthogonally to the IC surface. The Triaxis™ Hall sensor is also sensitive to the flux density applied parallel to the IC surface. This is obtained through an Integrated Magneto-Concentrator (IMC®) which is deposited on the CMOS die (as an additional back-end step). The MLX90316 is only sensitive to the flux density coplanar with the IC surface. This allows the MLX90316 with the correct magnetic circuit to decode the absolute rotary (angular) position from 0 to 360 Degrees. It enables the design of novel generation of non-contacting rotary position sensors that are frequently required for both automotive and industrial applications. The MLX90316 has 3 different possible pre-programmed optons:
- SPI: Pre-programmed and locked for 360deg rotary position application in SPI mode (High Speed).
- PPA: Pre-Programmed Analog – 360deg angular span for an analog output between 0.5V and 4.5V, Low Speed Mode (Locked).
- PPD: Pre-Programmed PWM – 360deg angular span, 10-90% at 1 kHz, High Speed Mode (Locked).
MLX90316KDC is available in a SO8 with temperature range of -40°C to 125°C
