Article: Introducing the MagAlpha MAQ430 & MAQ470: 12-Bit, Automotive-Grade, Magnetic Angle Sensors

Measuring angular movement or rotation in vehicles is becoming increasingly important as vehicles integrate more technologies and systems to aid their drivers. Many vehicle system options are now controllable via a single rotary knob selector, and previously manual features are being motorized, which requires motor rotation, position, and speed control.

This article discusses how the MagAlpha MAQ470 and MAQ430 automotive-grade angle sensors from Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) can be used to provide a highly reliable and contactless way to measure angles, rotation position, or speed.
