GMR-Based Magnetic Angle Sensors
Infineon’s magnetic angle sensing principle is based on proven, automotive-qualified integrated Giant Magneto Resistive (iGMR) technology. iGMR technology combines magneto resistive sensing elements with integrated circuits in one chip. It can determine the absolute orientation of a magnetic field over the full range between 0° and 360° with high angular accuracy and resolution.
Products in this extensive portfolio offer the benefits of integrated, fast signal processing, short delay times and multiple interface options.
Applications for magnetic angle sensors:
- Magnetic encoding
- Motor commutation
- Steering angle sensing
- Rotational position measurement
