Diodes AH850

Diodes AH850/1/2/3 – Micropower Linear Hall Effect Sensor with Enable/Control Pin

The AH850/1/2/3 is a family of low power/micropower linear hall effect sensors with output voltage ratiometric to supply and magnetic field sense range of +/-400G for battery powered consumer , home appliances and industrial applications.

The high performance AH8501 and AH8503 have trimmed sensitivity accuracy of 3% with a null voltage offset below 1% of supply voltage.

Designed for a wide range of applications, they are optimized for the supply range of 1.6V to 3.6V consuming only 8.9uA in sleep mode (AH8500/AH8501) and 13uA in micropower mode (AH8502/AH8503).

The sensors have a ESD rating of 6kV for robustness. For system flexibility the enable pin in the AH8500/1 and CNTRL pin on the the AH8502/3 allow operating modes and sampling rate to minimize current consumption. In default modes, the AH8500/1 are in sleep mode while AH8502/3 operate in micropower mode.

The family of sensors are available in the small low profile UDFN2020-6.
