The AAS33001 is a 360° angle sensor IC that provides contactless high-resolution angular position information based on magnetic circular vertical Hall (CVH) technology. It has a system-on-chip (SoC) architecture that includes: a CVH front end, digital signal processing to calculate the angular position information, and multiple output formats: serial protocol (SPI), pulse-width modulation (PWM), and either motor commutation (UVW) or encoder outputs (A, B, I). It also includes on-chip EEPROM technology, capable of supporting up to 100 read/write cycles, for flexible programming of calibration
The AAS33001 is ideal for automotive applications requiring 0° to 360° angle measurements, such as electronic power steering (EPS), electronic power braking (EPB or IDB), transmission actuators, and BLDC pumps.
The AAS33001 includes on-chip 32 segment linearization. This can be used to calibrate out errors due to misalignment between the magnet and the sensor or imperfect magnetization of the target magnet (which can present itself as a misalignment of the magnet to the sensor).
The AAS33001 supports customer integration into safety critical applications.
The AAS33001 is available in a dual-die 24-pin eTSSOP and a single-die 14-pin TSSOP package. The packages are lead (Pb) free with 100% matte-tin leadframe plating. The 1 mm thin package reduces the minimum air gap between the CVH transducer and the target magnet. The AAS33001 device is pin-compatible with the A1333 to enable easy migration.
AAS33001 was developed in accordance with ISO 26262:2011 as a hardware safety element out of context. The single die version was designed with ASIL B capability (pending assessment), and the dual die version designed to meet ASIL D capability (pending assessment), for use in automotive safety-related systems when integrated and used in the manner prescribed in the applicable safety manual and datasheet.
