pg10_Infineon_image2Infineon Logo                NPI_LOGO
The new 3D magnetic sensor TLV493D-A1B6 offers accurate three dimensional sensing with extremely low power consumption in a small 6-pin package. With an opportunity to detect the magnetic field in x-, y-, and z-direction the sensor is ideally suited for the measurement of 3D movements, linear movements and rotation movements.


  • Integrated temperature sensing
  • Low current consumption
  • 0.007μA in power down mode
  • 10μA in ultra low power mode
  • 2.7V to 3.5V operating supply voltage
  • Digital output via 2-wire standard
  • I2C interface
  • Bx, By and Bz linear field measurement up to ±130mT
  • 12-bit data resolution for each measurement direction
  • Resolution 98μT/LSB
  • Operating temperature range from -40°C to +125°C


  • Joystick (e.g. finger, thumb and gaming paddles)
  • E-meters (e.g. anti-tampering)
  • Control elements e.g. white goods, multifunction knob
