Another DIY magnetic rotary encoder with the AS5043

Posted on Friday, March 2nd, 2012 in project logs by DP

Here’s another take on a breakout for the magnetic rotary encoder AS5043 IC:

Just wanted to show my take on the AS5043.
Double sided PCB by Seed, Voltage regulator onboard,
one LED for power on, the other for magnetic range output.

This chip measures the surrounding magnetic field and outputs a serial and analog reading that can be used to track the rotation of gears, motors, etc.
