New AS8515 from ams provides integrated solution for automotive battery sensing.
The sensor interface, which combines signal processing, voltage regulation and LIN transceiver in a single package, provides highly accurate and linear current, voltage and temperature measurement outputs.
The AS5161 is a contactless Hall-based magnetic position sensor for very accurate angular measurement over a full turn of 360°.
A sub range can be programmed to achieve the best output characteristic for the application. A simple diametrical 2-pole magnet rotating on the center of the IC is required: the magnet may be placed above or below the IC.
New interface chip from ams drives down the cost of adding high data-rate NFC capability to microcontroller designs.
AS3953 NFiC® offers full bi-directional near field communication, while harvesting energy from RF emissions.
The device is ideal for applications like Passive wake-up, Multipurpose HF interface to a controller, Low power or passive programming, Ultra Low Power Data Logger, RFID Programmable configuration EEPROM, ISO 14443A smart card, NFC Forum Tag Type 4, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi pairing.
The AS1331 is a synchronous buck-boost DC/DC converter which can handle input voltages above, below, or equal to the output voltage.
Due to the internal structure of the AS1331 which is working continuously through all operation modes, this device is ideal for single cell Li-Ion and multicell alkaline/NiCad/NiMH applications.
The AS1331 operates on lowest quiescent current of 22µA only resulting in highest efficiency up to 90% over a wide range of load currents. Combined with a shutdown current of typically 100nA, the AS1331 extends the lifetime of battery powered applications to a maximum.
The AS1331 allows a small solution footprint and external component count is also minimized. For power monitoring, the AS1331 offers either low battery detection or a power-ok feature offering flexibility for the design of applications. Additionally the AS1331 offers current limiting, thermal shutdown and output disconnect.
