AS5013 EasyPoint™ Miniature Joystick

Two-Dimensional Magnetic Position Sensor with Digital Coordinates Output

The AS5013 is an absolute position sensor for miniature joystick applications with maximum strokes of +/-2.0mm in x- and y-direction based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure xy-movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet. The absolute xy-position is measured with a resolution of 8-bit = 256 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I2C).
