iC-Haus’s iC-TW11 is an ultra-low-power, single-chip Hall encoder that enables energy-saving 10-bit angle detection. As a result, it is a good solution for battery-buffered applications.
The encoder’s sampling rate of 10 Hz yields an average current consumption of typically 3 µA. In Standby mode between measuring cycles, the idle current cuts back to approximately 100 nA. In normal operation, the encoder supports sampling rates of 4 kHz with an activated filter and automatic amplifier gain for 10-bit resolution at maximum accuracy. A measuring cycle operates via either a SPI or a separate trigger input by an external event.
The iC-TW11 EVAL TW11_1C evaluation board comes with a USB interface and GUI software. At a voltage supply of 3.3 V (+/-10 %), the iC-TW11 operates in an extended industrial operating temperature range from –40° to +125°C.
Production volume pricing starts at $4.21 in 1,000-piece quantities.
