      hi can I use PSoC 4 MagSense for Linear Encoder (for linear position Sensor ) ? because in datasheet it says MagSense support only Encoder Dial,Button and Proximity Sensor  thanks!

          MagSense component supports Button, Proximity and Encoder Dial only means component embedded data process firmware for these three kind of widgets, it can also be used for linear position sensing, you can monitor the sensor raw data changing and write a decode function by yourself to realize a Linear Encoder. I think you can use button widget directly but only use it's raw data.

           

          Below is a typical linear position sensing diagram
