Magnetic sensors - highest accuracy and quality for automotive, industrial and consumer applications
Infineon XENSIV? sensors are exceptionally precise thanks to industry-leading technologies. Our benchmark and innovative magnetic sensor portfolio is the perfect fit for various customer applications in automotive, industrial and consumer markets. We offer all magnetic sensor technologies with in-house production, thus our customers can choose between Hall sensors, AMR (Anisotropic Magneto Resistive), GMR (Giant Magneto Resistive) or TMR (Tunnel Magneto Resistive) sensors in order to find their best-fit solution for their application. Infineon’s XENSIV? magnetic sensors combine highest-accuracy with proven quality and more than 40 years of experience in sensing solutions.
Generally, magnetic sensors are able to detect magnetic fields and process this information. The outcome on the position, angle and strength (Hall-effect) or the direction (Magneto Resistive) of an applied magnetic field can be converted into specific output signals. Our magnetic sensor portfolio comprises Hall switches, linear Hall sensors, angle sensors, 3D Hall sensors as well as magnetic speed sensors with their respective field of application.
Furthermore our portfolio comprises XENSIVTM current sensors which are high precision coreless sensors dedicated for any kind of industrial applications, such as industrial inverters and drives or battery management. Our well-established and robust monolithic Hall technology enables accurate and highly linear measurement of currents with a full scale up to 120 A. Negative effects, like saturation and hysteresis, commonly known from core based sensor techniques are not present in the Infineon open loop, core less sensors principle.
Description of our online simulation tools
|XENSIV? - 3D Magnetic Sensors||
3D magnetic field sensor for smaller, more accurate and robust designs. The sensor family, with low current consumption and cost-optimized design, specifically addresses the needs of new magnetic sensor applications in consumer, industrial and automotive. They are ideally suited for the measurement of three dimensional movement within a magnetic field, linear slide movement as well as 360° angle rotation.
|XENSIV? - Magnetic Hall Switches||
Discover Infineon′s broad energy saving portfolio of Hall switches in smallest package. Simulate your Hall switch applications and see the results in an accurate simulation of the magnetic field and the switching behavior of the Hall switch in the application.
|XENSIV? - Magnetic Angle Sensors||
Highest variety - low end to high end, standardized and specialized in all four magnetic technologies: Hall, GMR, AMR and TMR. This tool calculates the valid distance from the magnet surface to the sensor and the assembly error, given certain parameters: magnetic properties , sensor specification and assembly tolerances.
