|Sensor Evaluation Kits
NVE offers sensor evaluation kits at nominal cost so customers can evaluate
these remarkable devices. A number of kits are available:
AG001-01Analog Sensor Evaluation Kit
This kit features several types of NVEs AA and AB series parts, a selection
of permanent magnets for activation or bias purposes, and circuit boards to mount
the parts for testing.
AG003-01Current Sensor Evaluation Kit
This kit features a specially designed circuit board with traces running under
the sensor elements. The customer can try different current levels to see the
output from the sensor.
AG910-07; AG911-07GMR Switch Evaluation Kits
Several GMR Switches with different magnetic operate points and different output
options such as current sink and current source. Magnets and circuit boards for
mounting the parts are also included. The AG910-07 kit also includes a zero insertion
force (ZIF) socket for easy testing of the MSOP packages.
AG940-07EDigital/Analog/Omnipolar/Bipolar Sensor Demo Board
The kit includes a demo board our most popular sensor types: digital, analog,
omnipolar, and bipolar. Each sensor drives an indicator LED. A bar magnet is included
so you can see for yourself how these remarkable sensors work. The evaluation
boards are 3.75 x 5 inches (95 x 127 mm), and are powered by two coin cells (included).
AG941-07ADL-Series Sensor Demo Board
The kit includes a demo board with three ultraminiature, ultralow-power ADL-Series
magnetic sensors. Each sensor drives an indicator LED, and a meter shows the
sensor power in microamps or nanoamps. A bar magnet is included so you can see
for yourself how these remarkable sensors work. The evaluation boards are 3.75
x 5 inches (95 x 127 mm), and are powered by a coin cell (included).
AG920-07GT Sensor Evaluation Kit
Evaluate gear tooth sensors for measuring rotational speed with a variety of analog
and digital GT Sensors, plus the DD001-12 stand-alone signal processing IC. A
variety of PCB configurations are provided so the parts can be tested in different
housing and barrel sizes, including the M8 housing. Biasing magnets are also included.
AG921-07AKL002 Gear-Tooth Sensor Demonstrator
NVEs newest evaluation kit is a self-contained demonstrator for NVEs
unique AKL digital gear tooth sensor. The battery-powered demonstrator (battery
included) is based on an AKL002 sensor. The demonstrator also includes a circuit
board with an LED and driver, a biasing magnet, and a gear that can be turned
by hand. No assembly required. Dimensions 3" x 3" x 1.5".
AG93x-07Angle Sensor Evaluation Kits
Includes an evaluation circuit board with a reference design AAT-Series Sensor
and a unity-gain buffer amplifier. A split-pole magnet and a plastic magnet locating
fixture are included in the kit. An angular reticle on the circuit board aids
in characterizing output versus angle. Three versions are available for three
different AAT-Series sensors:
AG932-07ADT002 Rotation Sensor Evaluation Kit
The kit includes a circuit board with an ADT002
low hysteresis, ultralow-power rotation sensor, a split-pole magnet that can be
turned, and simple circuitry to drive LEDs from the sensor outputs. Two LEDs follow
the sensor outputs; four others indicate the rotational quadrant. A 3-volt coin
cell (included) powers the board.
AG040Nanopower Sensor Demonstration Boards
These kits include demo boards with the ultraminiature, ultralow-power ADL021
magnetic switch. An LED shows the sensor output. A bar magnet is included so you
can see for yourself how these remarkable sensors work. Sensor quiescent current
is only 100 nA typical; the sensor operate point is 20 Oe; and the sensors are
1.1 mm x 1.1 mm. These miniature evaluation boards are just 0.25 x 1.57 inches
(6 x 40 mm). There are two versions: the AG040C
is externally-powered, and the AG040B
is powered by a coin cell (included), and the sensor quiescent power consumption
is so low, the battery will last indefinitely.
