TMR based angle sensor
The EvalKit consists of:
- an Infineon XMC1100 BootKit (microcontroller)
- the TLE5501_EVAL_SHIELD which can be plugged onto the BootKit
- a “magnetic knob” that can be mounted on top of the shield
The TLE5501 Angle Shield has to be plugged onto the BootKit. Care has to be taken that the pins are correctly aligned. The TLE5501 sensor is soldered on the shield in a “breakout” area that can be easily broken of the shield and used in another application if needed. The shield has mounting holes for a magnetic knob that can be used to demonstrate the functionality of the sensor. The shield has also a voltage buffer available on board, and the output of the sensor can be optionally buffered by selecting the correct DIP switch settings.
