Hall-effect sensors suit industrial applications

Diodes has introduced a new portfolio of high-sensitivity Hall-effect sensors. Devices in the AH39xxQ series are designed to provide accurate speed and directional data or two independent outputs. These sensors are engineered for industrial and automotive applications such as detecting rotational and linear speed/ direction and determining the angular position of a rotating shaft.

In line with automotive battery requirements, the sensors operate over a 2.7 to 27V supply voltage range. They also have a 40V absolute maximum rating, safely handling 40V load dumps. Additionally, -18V reverse voltage protection guards against incorrect battery connections. For added robustness, ESD protection provided by these devices exceeds the automotive norms of 5kV human body model (HBM) and 2kV charge device model (CDM).

The sensors are AEC-Q100 Grade 0 qualified, manufactured in IATF 16949 certified facilities and support PPAP documentation. They are supplied in TSOT25 packages.
In 1,000 piece quantities, the AH396xQ and AH397xQ series are available at $0.40 and $0.44 respectively.
