Governing motion and speed, this domain is what makes an automobile move. Movement is based on inputs from the driver or the driver-substitute and can be modified based on personal preferences and environmental constraints, such as road conditions. The vehicle dynamics portion of this domain is where supporting subsystems, such as suspension and steering, ensure stability and a smooth ride.

Our angular sensors include magnetic field sensors, integrated amplifiers and programmable sensors.

NXP’s 16- and 32-bit single and dual-core automotive MCUs provide enhanced computing power and specialized peripherals for complex electric motor control functions. Integrated power supply solutions are also important elements of a power steering control unit.



  • BLDC motor commutation
  • Electronic Power Steering (EPS)
  • Steering angle measurement
  • Window wiper position detection
  • Contactless angle measurement
  • Quick response
  • High accuracy over wider temperature range
