Magnetic Position Sensors
Worldwide Leading Technologies and Product PortfolioWhat differentiates Infineon as a partner for sensor applications:
Today, a new car features numerous safety, body and powertrain applications that rely on magnetic sensors. Clearly focused on future trends, our outstanding portfolio of sensor ICs for numerous safety-relevant automotive systems makes cars much safer. In Electric Power Steering (EPS), our magnetic angle sensors and linear Hall sensors are used to measure the steering angle and steering torque.
Our magnetic sensor portfolio now comprises over 250 different products.
Our Hall switches, for example, are regarded as an ideal solution for current commutation in brushless drives (BLDC). Many applications require conventional block commutation – and Hall switches are the perfect fit here. Efficiency levels can be raised even further by directly mea-suring the rotor angle with our angle sensor family.
Our newly launched innovative 3D magnetic sensor family, with low current consumption and cost-optimized design, specifically addresses the needs of new magnetic sensor applications and is, for example, dedicated to industrial and consumer applications such as control elements, joysticks and E-meters (anti-tampering). Furthermore, it is the ideal fit for low-power 3D magnetic automotive applications such as indicators and gear shifters.
