Sensor Interfaces

Sensor interfaces are a core competence of ams. Sensor Interface ICs allow to readout the information coming from the signal generated by complex sensors, providing a suitable output signal simple to display or elaborate. ams Sensor Interfaces provide high accuracy, precision and sensitivity even in harsh environment.

Accessory Communication Interface

The Accessory Communications Interface (ACI) invented by ams uses a single wire to carry power and bidirectional data as well as digital audio signals. The ACI solution reduces the size and the weight of accessories by eliminating the battery. Due to ams’ ultra-low latency, ANC is enabled. Additionally, it is possible to use headset-mounted sensors to add various features such as gesture sensing, temperature sensing or HRM. ACI supplies up to 100mA to accessories and enables the use of LEDs for features like illuminated wires or LED displays.
