austriamicrosystems is sampling the AS5410 linear position sensor, the first product of what the company states is the world's first fully featured 3D Hall platform.
The 3D Hall sensor solution senses absolute position in automotive and industrial applications and provides the highest resolution position information available, according to the company. The for example, a travel distance of 40 mm does not pose a problem for a small, 4 x 4 x 3 mm sized NeFeB magnet. Moreover, the 3D Hall solution’s output remains stable even when the device is subject to external stray magnetic fields. This feature is a worldwide first and the result of a special differential measurement technique including several 3D Hall sensor elements, the company said. AS5410 allows absolute position sensing of a simple two-pole magnet immediately after starting up the device, without the need for a prior reference run within the application.
