PSI5 option added to Triaxis automotive Hall sensor range

By eeNews Europe

The MLX90373 contains an PSI5 (Peripheral Sensor Interface 5)output. PSI5 is an open standard derived from the technology used in air bag safety systems. The responsive technology delivers a data bit rate of 125kbit/s over a 2-wire unshielded cable. A 2-wire implementation makes it simpler and cheaper to deploy than other serial interfaces that need 3- or 4-wire cabling.

The MLX90373 has both rotary and linear position sensing in a rugged design. An extended ambient temperature of -40℃ to +125℃, on-chip diagnostic features and a gateway input for external sensors are integrated in a design which features all the benefits of the PSI5 interface, including four time-slots.

The MLX90373 supports PCB-less mounting and has excellent EMC performance. It meets ISO 26262 ASIL C (SEOoC) requirements and has a dual-die, fully redundant version in a TSSOP-16 package.
