A1367: Low-Noise, High-Precision, Programmable Linear Hall-Effect Sensor IC with Regulated Supply, Advanced Temperature Compensation, and High-Bandwidth (240 kHz) Analog Output

Description

The Allegro™ A1367 programmable linear Hall-effect current sensor IC has been designed to achieve high accuracy and resolution without compromising bandwidth. This goal is achieved through new proprietary linearly interpolated temperature compensation technology that is programmed at the Allegro factory and provides sensitivity and offset that are virtually flat across the full operating temperature range.

Temperature compensation is performed in the digital domain with integrated EEPROM technology while maintaining a 240 kHz bandwidth analog signal path, making this device ideal for HEV inverter, DC-to-DC converter, and electric power steering (EPS) applications.

This ratiometric Hall-effect sensor IC provides a voltage output that is proportional to the applied magnetic field. The customer can configure the sensitivity and quiescent (zero field) output voltage through programming on the VCC and output pins, to optimize performance in the end application. The quiescent output voltage is user-adjustable, around 50% (bidirectional configuration) or 10% (unidirectional configuration) of the supply voltage, VCC, and the output sensitivity is adjustable within the range of 0.6 to 6.4 mV/G.

The sensor IC incorporates a highly sensitive Hall element with a BiCMOS interface integrated circuit that employs a low-noise small-signal high-gain amplifier, a clamped low-impedance output stage, and a proprietary, high-bandwidth dynamic offset cancellation technique. These advances in Hall-effect technology work together to provide an industry-leading sensing resolution at the full 240 kHz bandwidth. Broken ground wire detection as well as user-selectable output voltage clamps also are built into this device for high reliability in automotive applications.

Device parameters are specified across an extended ambient temperature range: –40°C to 150°C. The A1367 sensor IC is provided in an extremely thin case (1 mm thick), 4-pin SIP (single in-line package, suffix KT) that is lead (Pb) free, with 100% matte-tin leadframe plating.
