New Antenna Positioning Sensor

I saw this on another list, and thought it might be of interest for those who like to build their own rotor systems.

>I came across an interesting part suited for use as an antenna position sensor. Its an IC that will output both a 12bit digital code and an analog voltage in proportion to the angular position of a magnet rotated in front of the IC.  The part number is AS5043 from Austria Micro Systems, and you can learn more about it at: http://www.austriamicrosystems.com/03products/products_detail/AS5043/features_AS5043.htm
