austriamicrosystems AG

The AS5046 from Austriamicrosystems AG, Unterpremstaetten, Austria, is a 12-bit magnetic rotary encoder that offers rotation, tilt, and vertical distance detection of a magnet placed above the IC. The device can detect vertical distances over several millimeters. The chip combines both the Hall elements and a signal processor and supports the detection of magnet tilt with pushbutton functionality. The device communicates with an external microcontroller over a 2-wire serial interface and provides a programmable ratiometric analog output for standalone operation.
