For more than 35 years ams has developed and manufactured high performance analog ICs and advanced sensor solutions. Our mission is to shape the world with sensor solutions by providing a seamless interface between humans and technology. ams’ products drive applications requiring small form factor, low power, highest sensitivity and multi-sensor integration. We offer sensors (including optical sensors), interfaces and related software for consumer, communications, industrial, medical, and automotive markets. With headquarters in Austria ams employs 8,000 people worldwide.
Position sensors from ams are ideally suited to all motor control and motion control systems. The devices are come with a revolutionary integrated Dynamic Angle Error Compensation (DAECTM). In high-speed brushless DC (BLDC) motors and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) the sensor’s high accuracy enables better execution of the commutation scheme, resulting in higher torque and efficiency, lower torque ripple and smoother operation. The devices are high-resolution rotary position sensors for fast absolute angle measurement over a full 360-degree range.
ams’ position sensors offer high performance, superior durability and adhere to the most stringent safety requirements. Our position sensors are designed with ams’ patented differential principle which eliminates the effects of environmental factors such as stray magnetic fields, vibration, and misalignment. The portfolio includes a broad range of high performance rotary magnetic position ICs suited for industrial, medical, robotics, automotive and consumer applications.
