Speed sensor gives transmission designers more options
Allegro MicroSystems has introduced a new, giant magnetoresistance (GMR) speed sensor that measures the rotation of ferromagnetic gears. The ATS19480 speed sensor IC provides a single-channel solution that’s suited for hybrid and pure electric vehicle transmissions, with use cases extending to two-wheelers, off-road vehicles, and industrial application designs requiring speed-only information.
Time of flight sensors enhanced for more applications
Time of Flight (ToF) ranging sensors are based on STMicroelectronics’ range of Flight Sense patented technology which allows the sensors to provide highly accurate distance measurement and proximity sensing.
Sensirion mass flow controllers in stock at Mouser
The SFC5500 digital multi-gas mass flow controllers from Sensirion are now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.
Dynamic gesture sensor detects at extended range
Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the next generation of its infrared-based optical dynamic gesture sensor, able to sense a broader range of gestures at extended distances. The MAX25405 detects a wider proximity of movement and doubles the sensing range to 40cm when compared to earlier generations, all in a quarter of the size and at ten times lower cost than time-of-flight (ToF) camera-based systems in automotive, industrial and cons...
