This is a prototype of a magnetic sensor BoosterPack for the TI MSP430 Launchpad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whgsB5hb-Pk The board has 3 Hall-effect magnetic sensors that sense a magnetic filed in the z-axis to the sensor. The BoosterPack has a latched output sensor (on/off by changing magnetic field direction), unlatched output sensor (on/off by changing magnitude of magnetic field), and analog output sensor (output follows strength of magnetic field). The sensor outputs are connected to analog input pins of the MSP430 LaunchPad. 10 LEDs are connected to digital output pins of t
In the quest to find a way to add crank position sensing to my EFI project, I came across this: http://www.ams.com/eng/Products/Magnetic-Position-Sensors/Magnetic-Rotary-Position-Sensors Put a bi-pole magnet on the end of a shaft, mount a chip close enough to the magnet and spin the shaft. Various ones output sine/cosine, absolute position, incremental pulses (one pulse per X degree), and PWM. If you find one (or two or three) you like, they offer samples of many of their products. I may have been lucky since I have a company-related email addressed and used that so I can't say any emai
