Melexis, a global microelectronics engineering company, has further reinforced its worldwide distribution channels with the announcement that it will partner with Mouser Electronics Inc. The global distribution agreement now established between the two companies will mean that Melexis’ state-of-the-art semiconductor products, for automotive, consumer, industrial, home/building automation and medical applications, will be added to the Mouser linecard.
The Melexis portfolio features many industry-leading solutions, including magnetic sensors, high performance imaging devices, MEMS pressure sensors, motor control ICs and wireless/wireline communication ICs. These help raise the energy efficiency levels of household appliances, improve patient monitoring and enable the wireless charging of portable electronics equipment, as well as leading to vehicles that are safer to drive and have lower carbon emissions.
Among the Melexis products that can now be sourced via Mouser is the MLX90393 ‘software defined sensor’. Utilizing Melexis’ proprietary Triaxis® technology, this highly flexible micropower magnetometer offers 16-bit resolution magnetic measurement along X, Y and Z axes (plus thermal measurement). It presents engineers with a vital building block upon which any magnetic sensing application can be based – including joysticks with push detection, rotary/push knobs and sliding switches. It is designed for 2.2V to 3.5V operation (drawing just 5µA idle current).
Also available from Mouser is the MLX90614 automotive-grade digital infrared (IR) thermometer, which provides a highly effective non-contact method for measuring object temperatures up to +380°C. This integrates a low-noise amplifier, 17-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and powerful digital signal processing (DSP) unit to deliver 0.5°C accuracy across a wide temperature range, with resolution of up to 0.01°C. In addition to these devices, Mouser is also stocking the MLX81106 LIN RGB slave controller and MLX90129 13.56MHz sensor transponder IC.
“Melexis has made great progress during 2015 in strengthening its global distribution network,” states Gianluigi Morello, Global Sales Director for Melexis. “Our cooperation with Mouser is a vital part of this work. As a result we will now be even better positioned to deal with growing market demands over a wide range of different industry sectors.”
