This solution is simple and cost-effective as it consists of components that are off the shelf: A standard PCB, a Renesas position sensor, some passive components and a piece of metal as a target.
The sensing element is not inside the Renesas IC but is a set of coils on the PC board. The beauty of this is that the sensor as a system can be tailored and designed around the customer’s application. It uses dual IPS2200 inductive position sensors (IPS) for absolute position detecting, optimizes the coil size, and the module package ties in with market trends (35mm motor).
Renesas' Lab on the Cloud is an online environment where Renesas solutions, including popular evaluation boards, winning combinations and software, are hosted in a remote lab that customers access and test online.
This solution demonstrates a rotary encoder where users can measure the accuracy, Sine/Cosine, of a motor by controlling the speed and direction of the motor.
Renesas' complementary product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing + Connectivity work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. Our product experts have developed "Winning Combinations," compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
