Position sensing for motor control - what you need to know in three graphs

There are many sensing solutions for motor control; optical and magnetic encoders, Hall sensors, resolvers. Between them they provide a wide range of options with different performance in speed of response, design efficiency, durability and cost effectiveness. However all of the widely used sensors for motor control have strengths and weaknesses; it is important to understand these when selecting a sensor.

CambridgeIC's CAM204 in Elektra 2011 Finals

CambridgeIC's CAM204 chip has been shortlisted for an Elektra 2011 award by a panel of independent judges.  The CAM204 is a processor for resonant inductive sensing.  Used with sensors built from PCBs, it detects the precise position of low-cost, sealed targets without contact.  Sensors are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes for both linear and rotary sensing.
