I designed a small evaluation PCB for the AS5040 magnetic rotary encoder chip from ams. This chip allows detection of the rotary position of a magnet with 10 bits of resolution, or approximately 0.35 degrees. This chip enables a lot of possible applications for non-contact shaft feedback such as fluid-moving pumps, wear-less speed sensors, etc.
