Japanese semiconductor manufacturer Renesas Electronics Corporation has launched its magnet-free IPS2550 inductive position sensor with improved performance and easy customization, as well as total stray field immunity, and reduced weight and form factor.

The company said that IPS2550 is ideal for use as an absolute position sensor for high-speed motor commutation in passenger cars, heavy-duty commercial and off-road vehicles as well as motorbikes.

With its optimized bill-of-materials, the new sensor allows customers to cost effectively tailor sensor design for their applications and maximize the performance of the sensor’s accuracy.

Customers can also take advantage of a complete motor commutation solution for traction motors, electronic power steering, starter generators, and other motor applications when combining the new sensor with Renesas microcontrollers (MCUs), gate drivers, and motor drivers.

Commenting on the development, Christian Wolf, Vice President, Automotive Sensor Business Division at Renesas, said that “we are excited with the response to the new inductive position sensing technology we introduced last June for industrial motors, and we look forward to bringing its advantages to automotive customers with the new IPS2550.” 

“The IPS2550 provides a slimmer and lighter contact-less sensor that continues to deliver the high performance and stability that automotive applications demand combined with the flexibility and ease of customization that enable businesses to manufacture their own resolver or magnetic sensor replacement cost effectively,” Wolf added.

The IPS2550 is the latest member of the company’s inductive position sensing portfolio and joins the company’s robust portfolio of devices for automotive applications, which includes MCUs, system on chips (SoCs), analog, and power management to deliver comprehensive solutions.

Meanwhile, the IPS2550 is available now with prices starting at USD 4.76 per unit in 1,000-unit quantities. The IPS2500STKIT evaluation kit is also available.
