The KMA36 is a universal magnetic Encoder IC for rotational or linear measurement that features resolution of up to 15 bit. The encoder has a sleep mode over I²C and programmable parameters to allow a wide range of configurations. Anisotropic Magnetoresistive (AMR) technology provides precise and contactless 360° measurement over an external magnet and in linear applications, the KMA36 can determine incremental positions on a magnetic pole strip.
The IC has large air gap tolerance. Measurements are reliable over temperature ranges and resilient against thermal stress. The maintenance-free operation and high bandwidth of the sensor makes it ideal for dynamic applications in harsh environments.
