New channel for novel sensors

Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Asahi Kasei Microdevices for sensors and analog/digital mixed-signal ICs. Asahi Kasei Microdevices’ products combine compound semiconductor technology mainly used for magnetic sensors with ASIC/analog circuit technology based on silicon semiconductors.


The product portfolio includes the CZx coreless current sensor ICs. These devices feature creepage and clearance distances of 8mm or more and high accuracy. These current sensor ICs support a current range and generate less heat. The CZ3Ax current sensor ICs have two overcurrent detection circuits and each overcurrent detection threshold can be adjusted from the outside. The CZ37x current sensor ICs feature a built-in disturbance magnetic field suppression function that improves system efficiency and precise control in various applications.


Mouser also offers the company’s AK5x audio analog-to-digital converters and AK4x audio digital-to-analog converters. These devices implement Velvet Sound technology, designed to maximize dynamics and ensure pure, unaltered audio data, prioritizing the accurate capture and reproduction of the source material to achieve high performance and rich musicality.
