The KMA36 digital position sensor IC combines a magnetoresistive sensor element along with analog to digital converter and signal processing in a standard small TSSOP package. By using Anisotropic Magneto Resistive (AMR) technology, the KMA36 is able to determine accuractly and contactless the magnetic angle of an external magnet over 360°, as well as the incremental position on a magnetic pole strip with 5 mm pole length. Its sleep- and low power mode as well as automatic wake-up over SPI make the KMA36 ideal for many battery applications. Position data can be transmitted using a PWM or digital two-wire (SDA, SCL) communication bus. Using the programmable parameters of this digital position sensor, the user can have access to a wide range of configuration to ensure the maximum of freedom and functionalities.
