Infrared radiation (IR) can be detected by thermal IR and quantum IR sensors. A thermal IR sensor uses infrared energy as heat for detection and its sensitivity is independent of wavelengths. Therefore, it can detect objects in the near IR, mid IR, and far IR bands. The non-contact detectors do not require cooling after exposure […]
At Sensors Expo 2018, Vinicius (Vinnie) Cardoso, a field application engineer at Melexis, demonstrates the capabilities of the company’s magnetic position sensors. Using an extremely eye catching 3-D LED structure, he shows how the MLX90333 Triaxis® position sensor indicates the position of a magnet. With red and blue LEDs indicating the north-south poles of a […]
At Sensor Expo 2017, Doug Gates, a technical sales manager from Melexis explains the applications for his company’s two-chip semiconductor solution for time of flight (TOF) sensing. Time of flight sensing uses optical, acoustic, electromagnetic or other wave techniques to measure the time that it takes for the source to travel a distance through a […]
Melexis, a global microelectronics engineering company, has introduced the MLX73290-M. This multi-channel RF transceiver IC draws on the company’s long-established technical expertise in low power wireless implementation. Addressing…
The post Multi-channel RF transceiver IC handles sub-GHz ISM bands appeared first on Analog IC Tips.
Melexis extends its portfolio of robust factory-programmed Hall effect sensors for use in automotive, industrial and other harsh environments with the introduction of a new device at a…
Designed for 1 Bar (14.7 psi) automotive applications, Melexis MLX90809 pressure sensor meets Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100 requirements. The piezoresistive microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology sensor and its signal conditioning circuitry are fabricated in a standard CMOS process producing a completely monolithic sensor on the same wafer. Signal conditioning includes a low-noise analog front end […]
Melexis uses its proprietary Triaxis technology in the MLX90365 position sensor to measure the properties of a magnetic field in all three dimensions. The sensors are offered in SOIC and TSSOP surface mount packages and use passive protection components mounted on the PCB. Consequently, 12-bit resolution devices can be used in either linear or rotary […]
