A1140, A1142, A1143: Sensitive Two-Wire Chopper-Stabilized Unipolar Hall-Effect Switches

This device is no longer in production. The device should not be purchased for new design applications. Samples are no longer available. Date of status change: October 31, 2011.

Recommended Substitutions: For existing customer transition, and for new customers or new applications, refer to the following parts:

The A1140, A1142, and A1143 devices are sensitive, two-wire, unipolar, Hall-effect switches that are factory-programmed at end-of-line to optimize magnetic switchpoint accuracy. These devices use a patented high frequency chopper-stabilization technique, produced using the Allegro advanced BiCMOS wafer fabrication process, to achieve magnetic stability and to eliminate offset inherent in single-element devices exposed to harsh application environments.

Commonly found in a number of automotive applications, these switches are utilized in sensing seat track position, seat belt buckle presence, hood/trunk latching, and shift selector position. Two-wire unipolar switches, such as the A1140/A1142/A1143 family, are particularly advantageous in price-sensitive applications because they require one less wire for operation than do switches with the more traditional opencollector output. Additionally, the system designer inherently gains diagnostics because there is always output current flowing, which should be in either of two narrow ranges. Any current level not within these ranges indicates a fault condition. The A1140/A1142/A1143 family of switches also features on-chip transient protection and a Zener clamp to protect against overvoltage conditions on the supply line.

The output currents of the A1143 switch HIGH in the presence of a south (+) polarity magnetic field of sufficient strength, and switch LOW otherwise, as in the presence of a weak field or a north (–) polarity field. The other two devices in the family (A1140 and A1142) have an opposite output: the currents switch LOW in the presence of a south-polarity magnetic field of sufficient strength, and switch HIGH otherwise. The other differences in the switches are their defined low current levels and magnetic switchpoints.

All versions are offered in two package styles. The LH is a SOT-23W, miniature low-profile package for surface-mount applications. The UA is a three-lead ultramini SIP for through-hole mounting. Each package is available in a lead (Pb) free version (suffix, –T) with 100% matte tin plated leadframe. Field-programmable versions also available: A1180, A1182, and A1183.
