ams – AS5170: On-Axis Magnetic Position Sensor Supports Full ISO26262 Safety Compliance


The AS5170 is a high resolution, angular position sensor for precise absolute angle measurement. The AS5170 is available with an analog output interface (AS5170A) or a digital output interface (AS5170B). The latter can be programmed as a PWM or a SENT-compliant output interface. The AS5170 operates at a supply voltage of 5V, and the supply and output pins are protected against over-voltage up to +20V. In addition, the supply pins are protected against reverse polarity up to -20V.
