CUI's AMT203 modular encoder outputs 12 bits of absolute position information in a very small (1.35"x1.13"x 0.45") modular package. Unique among its peers, the AMT203 generates absolute position information using CUI's patented, capacitive code generation system coupled with a proprietary ASIC, creating a reliable, economical, and durable control and positioning solution. The AMT203's serial peripheral interface (SPI) affords higher throughput and simpler hardware interfacing than I²C or SMBus. Using TCL code, the onboard PIC 16F690 MCU operates at up to 20MHz, providing for high-speed applications. Zero position may be set by SPI command or ground trigger, removing the need for time consuming mechanical alignment during the mounting process. Additionally, the AMT203 provides a non-magnetic index pulse and may be configured to output incremental position data after zero position is established to approach throughput of up to 250MHz. A demo board is available for stand-alone demonstration, PC access to SPI interface, and example TCL code.
