A1250 Hall-Effect Latch / Bipolar Switch

The A1250 Hall-effect sensor IC is a temperature stable, stress-resistant bipolar switch. This device is the most sensitive Hall-effect device in the Allegro bipolar switch family and is intended for ring-magnet sensing. Superior high-temperature performance is made possible through an Allegro patented dynamic offset cancellation that uses chopper stabilization. This method reduces the offset voltage normally caused by device overmolding, temperature dependencies, and thermal stress.

The A1250 includes the following on a single silicon chip: a voltage regulator, Hall-voltage generator, small-signal amplifier, chopper stabilization, Schmitt trigger, and a short circuit protected open-drain output. Advanced BiCMOS wafer fabrication processing takes advantage of low-voltage requirements, component matching, very low input-offset errors, and small component geometries.

The A1250 Hall-effect bipolar switch turns on in a south polarity magnetic field of sufficient strength and switches off in a north polarity magnetic field of sufficient strength. Because the output state is not defined if the magnetic field is diminished or removed, to ensure that the device switches, Allegro recommends using magnets of both polarities and of sufficient strength in the application.

The A1250 is rated for operation in the ambient temperature range L, –40°C to 150°C. Two package styles provide magnetically optimized solutions for most applications. Each package is lead (Pb) free version, with 100% matte-tin-plated leadframe.

ASIL LogoThe A1250 complies with the international standard for automotive functional safety, ISO 26262, as a Quality Managed (QM) product. The device is classified as a SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) and can be easily integrated into safety-critical systems requiring higher ASIL ratings that incorporate external diagnostics or use measures such as redundancy. Safety documentation will be provided to support and guide the integration process. For further information, contact your local Allegro field applications engineer or sales representative.
