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.
