December 09, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Infineon XENSIV™ sensor 2GO kits are new budget-priced evaluation boards that are already equipped with a sensor combined with an ARM® Cortex®-M0 CPU. The sensor 2GO kits provide a complete set of on-board devices, including an on-board debugger. Build your own application and gadget with the sensor 2GO kits. These 2GO kits are ready-to-use plug-and-play boards.

XENSIV™ is designed to smartify lives by enabling "things" to "see", "hear", "feel" and "understand" their environment. Best-in-class accuracy and measurement precision enable customers to build more intelligence into their designs, and create new, innovative applications that truly "understand" their environment.

They can include a variety of sensors and sensor functions including magnetic current sensors, low-cost rotational speed, 3D magnetic sensors and magnetic angle sensors (illustrated in the block diagram above) with optional joystick adapter, rotation knob and linear slider as well as digital barometric air pressure sensor and XENSIV™ MEMS microphones.

The XENSIV™ TLx5012B magnetic angle sensor 2GO kit is a budget-priced entry level evaluation kit equipped with a TLE5012B /TLI5012B digital GMR angle sensor interfaced with an XMC1100 Infineon Microcontroller based on ARM Cortex M0 CPU. The sensor is assembled in four different variants:

  • TLE5012B E1000 version: automotive predefined variant with SSC & IIF communication protocols
  • TLE5012B E5000 version: automotive predefined variant with SSC & PWM communication protocols
  • TLE5012B E9000 version: automotive predefined variant with SSC & SPC communication protocols
  • TLI5012B E1000 version: industrial predefined variant with SSC & IIF communication protocols
