Infineon gives Xensiv magnetic sensor an 87% smaller footprint

The sensors is in a wafer-level package with an 87 percent smaller footprint and 46 percent less height than previous comparable products.

Due to the small WLB-5 package (1.13mm by 0.93mm by 0.59mm) and its low current consumption of 7nA in power-down mode, the magnetic sensor is suitable for use in applications that previously used resistor-based or optical solutions. Magnetic sensors offer high accuracy and robustness against dust and moisture.

The update rate is up to 5.7kHz, or 8.4kHz for the XY option, while the resolution in low-power modes can be adjusted in eight steps between 0.05 and 770Hz. The supply current is 3.4mA. The sensor has an I2C interface and a dedicated interrupt pin.

Series production is due to start in August 2020.
