Infineon’s first angle sensor based on TMR technology: XENSIV™ TLE5501

  Knowledge

Infineon's new TLE5501 products are 360° TMR-based angle sensor that detects the orientation of a magnetic field. This is achieved by measuring sine and cosine angle components with Tunneling Magneto Resistance (TMR) elements. These raw signals (sine and cosine) are provided as a differential output signal and can directly be further processed within a micro controller. The large output voltage of the...
