The AS5013 is an absolute position sensor for miniature joystick applications with maximum strokes of +/-2.0mm in x- and y-direction based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure xy-movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet. The absolute xy-position is measured with a resolution of 8 bit = 256 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I²C).
With two decades of magnetic sensor system know-how, we have broad experience in selecting the most suitable magnets. ams experts recommend the following magnet suppliers.
The AS5013 Adapter Board allows an easy and fast evaluation of the AS5013 contactless miniature joystick. By moving the EasyPoint module on the front side of the board it is possible to check the functionality of the AS5013. To connect the AS5013 on the adapter board to a microcontroller the single row 2.54mm 8-pin header is used. The adapter board can be easily connected to an existing application.
The Universal Connector Board completes the USB-8451 device (not included) and provide an evaluation tool which is easy to handle. The UCB in addition with the standard adapter board enables to do easy setups of basic application examples. This evaluation tool supports following products: AS5048A, AS5048B, AS505xA, AS5013
The National Instruments USB-8451 is a USB interface that provides standard I²C and Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) communication for test and validation purposes. Further details on NI USB-8451 and ordering information is available on National Instruments homepage: NI USB-8451
The AS5510 is an absolute position sensor for linear applications with short strokes (0.5 to 2.0mm) based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure a lateral movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet and the measured distance depends on the magnet geometry. The absolute position is measured with a resolution of 10 bit = 1024 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I²C).With two decades of magnetic sensor system know-how, we have broad experience in selecting the most suitable magnets. ams experts recommend the following magnet suppliers.
