Our family of angle sensors is based on integrated Magneto Resistive (ixMR) technologies.
The sensors detect the orientation of an applied magnetic field by measuring sine and cosine angle components with monolithically integrated magneto resistive elements.
ixMR technology is widely used in automotive and industrial applications, providing a wide range of benefits, i.e. high speed, not limited by the reaction time of the MR element but delays in the the amplifier circuit, high degree of integration, and much more.
Infineon´s iGMR sensors are ideal for applications with a wide angle range, such as BLDC motor or steering sensors. They are pre-calibrated and ready-to-use. Different levels of signal processing integration enable designers to optimize system partitioning.
Our iAMR sensors are ideal for applications with the highest accuracy requirements, as they offer best
performance over temperature, lifetime and magnetic field range. They are pre-calibrated and ready to use.
