For more than 35 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 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 5,800 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 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.
