5.2 TMAG5170 3D Hall-effect sensor for contactless designs
Industrial TI Tech Days sessionVehicle electrification is a key trend observed in both industrial and automotive markets. To reduce wear and tear in harsh environments, there is a conscious effort to go contactless. TI's portfolio of magnetic devices assists in going contactless by simply using a low cost magnet as a target. To overcome the mechanical challenges and ease in placement of magnets to be able to achieve higher precision measurements, TI has released the TMAG5170, a high precision 3D Hall-effect linear sensor that enables magnetic field measurements in X,Y and Z directions. In this presentation, we will discuss the TMAG5170 products and its features, use simulation tools and preview online tools that can assist in system design.
