Digital Crown & Extremely Small Encoder

Digital Crown & Extremely Small Encoder

In mobile devices, a digital crown has become a necessary user interface for smartwatch, and a small accurate rotary encoder to detect rotation angle of 0-360 degree is required for the rotating mechanism.  AKM, the world’s number one supplier of eCompass, is proposing a new “Digital Crown Sensor” and “Extremely Small Encoder”, targeting smaller size and low cost.  Key benefits to sealing the system removes concern for dirt, moisture, and complex mechanical structure.  Come see a demo that showcases AKM’s expertise in magnetic hall effect technology.

Switch Cube

Simple Security Sensor and “Switch Cube” for Connected Home

The AK09970N in combination with a simple magnetics, can monitor a door’s position, (closed or open).  It also can monitor a door’s, window’s and/or “object” condition used as a positioning sensor.  AK09970N’s advantage is ultra-low power consumption and magnetic sensitivity range, which can provide long battery life as well as the ability to use standard fixed magnets and customize your trigger points.  As a concept idea AKM has created the “SWITCH CUBE” that can control many home electrical appliances from a single cube and some magnets that are strategically placed.

TMR Magnetometer

TMR

TMR Magnetomete

AKM and TDK Corporation have jointly developed a highly accurate 3-axis magnetometer that combines an extremely sensitive Tunnel Magneto-Resistive (TMR) element developed by TDK and an advanced electronic compass ASIC designed by AKM in a small package.  The new TMR magnetometer on a chip, which has a miniature dimensions of just 1.6 mm x 1.6 mm x 0.6 mm, features the industry’s lowest RMS noise of just 40 nT-rms and a very low current consumption of only 40 µA at an output data rate of 100 Hz.
