Semiconductor Solutions for Automotive and Industrial Electronics
Sensor solutions for automotive and industrial electronics and application fields
In automotive electronics, TDK-Micronas is focusing both on highly integrated control systems for car interior applications, as well as on sensor systems for a wide range of applications, e.g. powertrain, chassis and body systems, or safety and security applications. They require on one hand rather simple Hall switches to detect a position, and on the other hand quite complex linear Hall-effect sensors for the measurement of a travel distance or of a rotational movement. Further areas of applications can be found in the industrial area, for example to control robots or to automate assembly equipment. Our sensor solutions are used in all types of white goods as well, such as washing machines, tumble dryers, and induction cookers, as well as heating and cooling systems. Hall-effect sensors can be found in almost any machine that needs to measure position, linear or rotational movement or even current.
