Extreme Long Travel Range Detection Technology 2017-01-1637

This is a new design for sensor extreme long travel range detection technology especially for clutch master cylinder piston position detection and fork position detection in transmission application to replace PLCD (Permanent magnetic Linear Contactless Displacement) platform with simple manufacturing process and high accuracy. The main innovation point includes integrating a ferromagnetic concentrator into sensor module to enhance magnetic flux density at remote area of travel range and applying 3D Hall array with microcontroller for signal post process to guarantee the accuracy of sensor. SPI mode is used for communication between 3D Hall array and microcontroller while a new signal post process method with self-learning calibration is applied in microcontroller algorithm.
