ACS770xCB: Thermally Enhanced, Fully Integrated, Hall Effect-Based High Precision Linear Current Sensor IC with 100 μΩ Current Conductor

CA/CB 5 pin


Top Features


The Allegro™ ACS770 family of current sensor ICs provides economical and precise solutions for AC or DC current sensing. Typical applications include motor control, load detection and management, power supply and DC-to-DC converter control, inverter control, and overcurrent fault detection.

The device consists of a precision, low-offset linear Hall circuit with a copper conduction path located near the die. Applied current flowing through this copper conduction path generates a magnetic field that is concentrated by a low magnetic hysteresis core, then converted by the Hall IC into a proportional voltage. Device accuracy is optimized through the close proximity of the magnetic signal to the Hall transducer. A precise, proportional output voltage is provided by the low-offset, chopper-stabilized BiCMOS Hall IC, which is programmed for accuracy at the factory. Proprietary digital temperature compensation technology greatly improves the IC accuracy and temperature stability without influencing the high bandwidth operation of the analog output.

High level immunity to current conductor dV/dt and stray electric fields is offered by Allegro proprietary integrated shield technology for low output voltage ripple and low offset drift in high-side, high voltage applications.

The output of the device has a positive slope (>VCC/2 for bidirectional devices) when an increasing current flows through the primary copper conduction path (from terminal 4 to terminal 5), which is the path used for current sampling. The internal resistance of this conductive path is 100 μΩ typical, providing low power loss.

The thickness of the copper conductor allows survival of the device at high overcurrent conditions. The terminals of the conductive path are electrically isolated from the signal leads (pins 1 through 3). This allows the ACS770 family of sensor ICs to be used in applications requiring electrical isolation without the use of opto-isolators or other costly isolation techniques.

The device is fully calibrated prior to shipment from the factory. The ACS770 family is lead (Pb) free. All leads are plated with 100% matte tin, and there is no Pb inside the package. The heavy gauge leadframe is made of oxygen-free copper.
