Described as a highly variable system on chip magnetic encoder device providing fast step response, the iC-MH8 can be used to create a vigorous, universal encoder with motor commutation and positioning interfaces. It integrates a Hall sensor array with signal amplification control, incremental (ABZ) outputs, absolute position via serial SSI/BiSS interface, BLDC motor commutation (UVW) outputs, differential sine/cosine outputs  (1 Vp-p to 100?), and RS-422 line driver outputs. Other features include speed control up to 120,000 rpm at a 12-bit resolution and absolute detection/measurement of angles of rotation. The iC-MH8 operates on a supply voltage of +5V (±10%) within an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. Price is $7.02 each/1,000. IC-HAUS CORP., Rindge, NH. (603) 398-9198.
