Eindhoven, Netherlands, June 26, 2012 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today announced the KMA220, a dual magnetic sensor designed for all automotive applications where a mechanical angle needs to be measured. Integrating two sensor systems in a single package, it is particularly relevant for throttle control applications where a redundant system solution is required. Operating in a simple disk magnet configuration with no need for a PCB or external components, the KMA220 offers a unique solution to the automotive market. The KMA220 is fully calibrated and ready to use, and incorporates three capacitors in addition to two sensors dies and two signal conditioning ASICs. This, combined with its dual nature, reduces system cost for customers and simplifies the assembly process. To achieve redundancy in throttle applications, car manufacturers have previously had to in...
