The latest high-speed processor CAM502 from Cambridge IC
from Cambridge IC
The CAM502 connects to resonant inductive sensors built from simple PCBs, measures the linear or angular position of a contactless target and can deliver 5000 independent position samples per second. This is 5 times faster than the previous generation, delivering an attractive solution for motor control and other applications requiring robust, responsive and precise position Feedback.
Resonant Inductive Position Sensing technology is used to precisely measure the position of a target without mechanical or electrical contact. The target's position is measured using a sensor built with conventional Printed Circuit Board (PCB) technology. The target houses an electrical resonator comprising an inductor and capacitor. An electronic processing system interacts with the sensor to power the resonator and to detect the signals that it returns. The detected amplitudes of these signals are processed to calculate position. CambridgeIC’s single-chip processing solutions enable customers to embed non-contact position sensors into their products with the minimum of effort, and to deploy those solutions in high volume at low cost.
