The A1120 and A1125 Hall-effect, unipolar switches are
extremely temperature-stable and stress-resistant sensor ICs,
especially suited for operation over extended temperature
ranges to 150°C. Superior high-temperature performance is
made possible through dynamic offset cancellation, which
reduces the residual offset voltage normally caused by device
overmolding, temperature dependencies, and thermal stress.
Each device includes on a single silicon chip a voltage regulator,
Hall-voltage generator, small-signal amplifier, chopper
stabilization, Schmitt trigger, and a short-circuit protected
open-collector output to sink up to 25 mA.
An on-board regulator permits operation with supply voltages
of 3 to 24 V. The advantage of operating down to 3 V is that
the device can be used in 3 V applications or with additional
external resistance in series with the supply pin for greater
protection against high voltage transient events.
For the A1120, a south pole of sufficient strength turns the
output on. Removal of the magnetic field turns the output off.
The A1125 is complementary to the A1120 in that, for the
A1125, a south pole turns the output off, and removal of the
magnetic field turns the output on.
Two package styles provide a magnetically optimized package
for most applications. Package type LH is a modified SOT23W,
surface mount package, while UAis a three-lead ultra-mini SIP
for through-hole mounting. Each package type is lead (Pb) free
(suffix, –T), with a 100% matte tin plated leadframe.
