For more than 30 years ams has developed and manufactured high performance analog semiconductors that solve its customers’ most challenging problems with innovative solutions. ams’ products are aimed at applications which require extreme precision, accuracy, dynamic range, sensitivity, and ultra-low power consumption. ams’ product range includes sensors, sensor interfaces, power management ICs and wireless ICs for customers in the consumer, industrial, medical, mobile communications and automotive markets. With headquarters in Austria ams employs 1,600 people in over 20 countries and operates direct sales offices in all major regions of the world.
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 best-in-class stray built-in stray field immunity 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 and linear magnetic position ICs suited for industrial, medical, robotics, automotive and consumer applications.
