AS5600: 12-Bit On-Axis Magnetic Rotary Position Sensor with Analog or PWM Output

The AS5600 is an easy to program magnetic rotary position sensor with a high resolution 12-bit analog or PWM output. This contactless system measures the absolute angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. This AS5600 is designed for contactless potentiometer applications and its robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields. The industry standard I²C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer.

FEATURES

  • Contactless angle measurement
  • Simple user-programmable start and stop positions over the I²C interface
  • 12-bit DAC output resolution
  • Analog output ratiometric to VDD or PWM-encoded digital output
  • 0.015°rms maximum noise
  • 1.5mA current consumption in the low power mode
  • 18° to 360° maximum angle programmable
  • Four power-saving modes
  • Automatic entry into low power mode
  • SOIC-8 package
