Magnetic, optical, capacitive absolute encoders

Seeing an online wildwilly differential swerve drive and wanting to try this on ftc, encoders will obviously be needed…

Amt-203 encoder looks interesting…

Why do i not Hear much about cui devices??? The link below suggests this is the way to go??? Thoughts?

Past was in teams 2625, 6330…
Always trying to learn more…

Added to this what price does a cnc start to be able to manufacture parts of a swerve drive steer assembly…
Or way cheaper tp just buy 4 at 300usd each???

the AMT absolute encoders are pretty good, from what I hear, but you may have to roll the SPI comms stuff yourself.

If you are looking to roll your own there are these awesome hall effect Absolute encoders that are dirt cheap have a bunch of options for connectivity and require limited supporting components. AS5600 (PWM,I2C, and Analog out) There are also variants with quadrature out. Chip is about $3.5 each. Datasheet

Edit: The photo is a photo of a prototype carrier board + Sparkmax breakout board for that sensor.
