Two-Wire High Precision Linear Hall-Effect Sensor IC with Pulse Width Modulated Output Current

Allegro MicroSystems, LLC

The A1357 device is a high precision, programmable two-wire Hall-Effect linear sensor IC with a pulse width modulated (PWM) current. The A1357 device converts an analog signal from its internal Hall sensor element to a digitally encoded PWM signal. The coupled noise immunity of the digitally encoded PWM is far superior to the noise immunity of an analog output signal. The BiCMOS, monolithic circuit inside of the A1357 integrates a Hall element, precision temperature-compensating circuitry to reduce the intrinsic sensitivity and offset drift of the Hall element, a small-signal high-gain amplifier, proprietary dynamic offset cancellation circuits, and PWM conversion circuitry.

Product Description

The dynamic offset cancellation circuits reduce the residual offset voltage of the Hall element that is normally caused by device overmolding, temperature dependencies, and thermal stress. The high frequency offset cancellation (chopping) clock allows for a greater sampling rate, which increases the accuracy of the output current signal and results in faster signal processing capability. The A1357 sensor is provided in a lead (Pb) free 3-pin single inline package (KB suffix), with 100% matte tin leadframe plating.
