MELEXIS MLX9042x series 3D magnetic position sensing solutions are primarily intended for automotive customers working on applications such as powertrain actuators, transmission sensors, pedal position sensors and chassis sensors. Industrial customers will also benefit from the improvements they enable. Based on firm’s Triaxis Hall sensor technology, devices feature analog signal conditioning, data conversion and signal processing, as well as output stage drivers. To ensure first-time-right EMC testing the device offers similar performance as the products in the MLX9037x family. Only one test cycle is required, keeping the design progressing quickly and the costs low. The high absolute maximum ratings (AMR), including reverse polarity, reduce the number of quality incidents due to electrical overstress and allow the achievement of various OEM requirements.
