New Product Introduction

Infineon TLE5014 magnetic sensor

Highest functional safety grading with an easy-to-use concept - ISO 26262

Infineon TLE5014 sensor

TLE5014 magnetic angle sensors meet ISO 26262 ASIL C for the single die and ISO 26262 ASIL D for the dual die versions. Therefore, all products are ready for applications with the highest functional safety requirements. The sensors show an extremely small angle error of less than 1° across the entire temperature profile and lifetime. This is particularly helpful in applications with the need for very accurate position sensing such as steering angle sensing or motor commutation. Further application areas range from rotor position measurement, EPS (Electric Power Steering), pedal position to any other kind of position measurement.

All XENSIVTM TLE5014 angle sensors are available as single and dual die products. The products come pre-configured and pre-calibrated as plug-and-play sensors – and are thus easy to use. Today, customers can choose between the interfaces SENT, PWM and SPC. Infineon will launch additional versions with an SPI interface by the end of this year. On top of those protocol options, the sensors can be adapted to any kind of application setup via their programmable E²PROM interfaces.
