ams AG Announces Availability of its AS-MLV-P2 MEMS Gas Sensor Component for Volatile Organic Compound

ams AG announced that it is supplying its AS-MLV-P2 MEMS gas sensor component for VOC (volatile organic compound) detection to Withings for use in its innovative new Home monitoring system. Accurate, small and power-efficient, the AS-MLV-P2 sensor produces a precisely varying resistance in response to changes in ambient levels of pollutants commonly found in indoor environments. The size, accuracy, reliability and low power consumption of the AS-MLV-P2 make it perfect for air quality monitoring applications in smart home and IoT devices. In Withings’ stylish and compact Home product, the AS-MLV-P2 is combined with a 5Mpixel video camera, dual microphones, temperature and humidity sensors and Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Smart radios. This means that users of the Home monitoring system can see, hear, feel and smell the inside of their home remotely via a smartphone or tablet app supplied by Withings. The AS-MLV-P2 measures ambient concentrations of a broad range of reducing gases associated with bad air quality such as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, amines, and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, which can be harmful to human and animal health at high levels. In the Home app, the sensor’s measurements of these chemicals are converted to an air-quality rating as well as to a measurement of VOC concentrations. The Home unit also sends notifications to the user’s phone or tablet when the concentration of VOCs exceeds pre-set thresholds, allowing the user to take an appropriate action such as opening a window, turning on an air cleaner or increasing the fan speed of a ventilation system. The AS-MLV-P2 sensor’s accurate VOC detection capability results from the implementation of proprietary MEMS and metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) technology developed by ams. This technology enables devices such as the Home monitor to provide credible data to consumers concerned about the quality of the air that they and their families breathe. The company’s proven AS-MLV-P2 provides a direct measurement of the concentration of pollutants, giving the user helpful information on which they can act to protect and improve air quality. Available in a surface-mount package, it provides this capability in a small footprint and offers long-term stable operation, while only consuming a low amount of power (typically 34mW in continuous operation). The gas sensor AS-MLV-P2 is available now in production volumes. It is priced at $14.30 each in order quantities of 1,000.

ams AG Launches Tiny 4mm2 Integrated Power Management Solution for Wearable Devices

ams AG introduced the AS3701, an integrated power management unit with an especially small footprint for use in wearables and other space-constrained devices. The AS3701, a micro-PMIC (power management IC) with a low quiescent current, implements multiple power-regulation, power-saving, battery-charging, protection and start-up functions in a chip-scale package (WL-CSP) measuring just 2mm x 2mm x 0.4mm. Power system designers using the AS3701 will be able to realize space savings and provide advanced power management functionality in products supplied by a single lithium-ion cell, such as smart watches, sport bands, wearable medical devices, handheld GPS units and mobile phones. The AS3701’s multiple power rails include two 200mA LDOs, a 500mA step-down DC-DC converter and two 40mA (maximum) programmable current sinks. The synchronous step-down (buck) converter, which switches at high frequencies up to 4MHz, only requires a small inductor and a 10µF output capacitor. The micro-PMIC’s integrated li-ion battery charger can operate in trickle-charge, constant current and constant voltage modes and supplies a maximum charging current of 500mA. Its power path management allows a device to start up with a dead battery, and optimizes power distribution between the battery charging circuit and the system power supply when plugged in to the mains. Many designs will use the AS3701’s I2C interface to enable configuration by a host processor or microcontroller. But the device also includes multi-purpose I/Os for wake-up/power-down inputs, PWM inputs and outputs, interrupts and control tasks when operating in stand-alone mode. A one-time programmable (OTP) boot sequence gives designers the flexibility to adapt the micro-PMIC’s start-up operation for different applications and processors. This allows OEMs to use the same power solution in multiple end-product designs, simplifying the development process and consolidating inventory. Integrated battery temperature monitoring, power-on reset and over-current protection help to ensure reliable and safe operation.

ams AG Launches New Version of its 47 Series of Magnetic Rotary Position Sensors

ams AG has launched a new version of its 47 series of magnetic rotary position sensors for motor and motion control applications, featuring higher rotation speeds and higher-resolution incremental outputs. Like other members of the 47 series, the new AS5047P features ams’ DAEC™ (dynamic angle error compensation) technology, which produces outstanding angle measurement accuracy even at very high rotation speeds. The 47 series magnetic sensors’ high-speed performance and ABI incremental outputs make them ideal as robust replacements for optical encoders. The total system cost of a design based on the 47 series is also normally far lower than the cost of an equivalent optical encoder or resolver. In the new AS5047P sensor, the maximum rated measurement speed has been increased from 14,500rpm to 28,000rpm, thus enabling it to support many high speed rotating shaft applications that previously could only be addressed with optical encoders. ams has also increased the number of steps per revolution in the device’s incremental ABI outputs. The 47 series’ ABI outputs are equivalent to the outputs of a standard optical encoder, so motor control system designers can easily replace an optical encoder with an ams magnetic position sensor measurement system without any change to their control software or interface. In the AS5047P, the maximum resolution of the ABI output is raised to 4,000 steps/1,000 pulses per revolution in decimal mode, and 4,096 steps/1,024 pulses per revolution in binary mode, which means that a wider range of optical encoders can now be replaced by a like-for-like magnetic position sensor. In addition, the AS5047P’s standard four-wire SPI serial interface allows a host microcontroller to read 14-bit absolute angle position data from the AS5047P, as well as to program non-volatile settings without the need for a dedicated programmer. The device also simultaneously provides a standard UVW commutation interface for use in brushless DC motors, eliminating the need for discrete Hall sensor switches, and providing a single IC to support both motor position and control applications. The absolute angle position may be provided as a PWM-encoded output signal. Like all magnetic position sensors from ams, the AS5047P is highly immune to interference from stray magnetic fields, and is also unaffected by the dirt, dust, grease, humidity and other contaminants that commonly impair the performance of optical encoders. The DAEC technology in the AS5047P provides compensation for the dynamic engle error caused by the propagation delay as the sensor processes raw measurements of magnetic field strength. DAEC thus eliminates the need for system designers to implement discrete error-correction circuitry in an external DSP or MCU. With DAEC, the AS5047P achieves very high accuracy, rated at a maximum 0.34° at a constant rotation speed of 28,000rpm (excluding integral non-linearity). The AS5047P is available now for volume production. It is priced at $4.63 each in quantities of 1,000 units.
