CambridgeIC’s position sensing solutions give a unique combination of high performance and durability with much lower levels of complexity in design and manufacture than most traditional approaches. Our non contact approach provides full absolute output with no homing or reference mark required. By building with conventional PCB the solution is accurate, stable and cost effective, and can be integrated with a customer's own circuitry for simplicity and cost reduction.

Further, the solution is highly tolerant of large gaps or misalignment, meaning sensors can 'see' through plastic housings and there is no need to stabilise targets with their own bearings.

Over the past 20 years we have supported hundreds of designers to integrate our technology into millions of durable electromechanical products around the world.

Arc Position Sensors from CambridgeIC measure the angle of a rotating target relative to a fixed sensor - a challenge found in many systems.

CambridgeIC's Precision Through Hole Rotary Sensors are used for measuring pan and tilt angles inside surveillance cameras.

Resonant inductive position sensing works through liquids and non-metallic housings to sense the location of a target.

Resonant inductive position sensing works through liquids and non-metallic housings to sense the location of a target.

A single Central Tracking Unit (CTU) chip can work with multiple sensors, each built from conventional low-cost PCB technology. 

Short Stroke sensors offer a convenient, cost effective method of measuring material thickness.

Stepper motors are simple to drive and control; However there is risk of losing step when current is kept low to save energy use.

Demands for smoothness, efficiency and cost effectiveness drive motor control design.  CambridgeIC offers solutions to meet all these criteria.

Resonant inductive sensing is well suited to measuring the angle of dials, in a user interface or performing another function in a machine.

CambridgeIC's linear position transducers measure position at the point of load, replacing ballscrews with a belt to deliver a lighter, more cost effective module.


Founded in 2007, CambridgeIC has developed single chip processors and a set of standard sensor designs and integration tools. These help customers embed resonant inductive sensing inside their products, by drawing on modular and well proven components.
