Infineon TLV493D-A1B6

TLV493D-A1B6 - Low Power 3D Magnetic Sensor with Digital Output

The 3D magnetic sensor TLV493D-A1B6 offers accurate three dimensional sensing with extremely low power consumption. Within its small 6-pin package the sensor provides direct measurement of the x, y and z magnetic field components, making it ideally suited for the measurement of 3D movement, Linear travel or 360° angle rotation.

By combining 3-axis measurement in a small package, with low power consumption, the TLV493D-A1B6 provides contactless position sensing to applications currently using potentiometers or optical solutions. System size can be reduced, as magnetic threshold stability over temperature provides a more accurate and robust solution for these systems.

The sensor provides a standard 2-wire digital I2C interface, which enables high speed bi-directional communication between the sensor and microcontroller. In keeping with the highest quality standards and environmental regulations, the sensor is RoHs compliant and JESD47 qualified.
