For the ATS625LSGTN-T, we recommend the ATS627LSGTN-T.
The ATS625 true zero-speed gear tooth sensor IC is an optimized Hall IC and rare earth pellet configuration that provides a manufacturer-friendly solution for digital gear tooth sensing applications. The over-molded package holds together a samarium cobalt pellet, a pole piece concentrator, and a true zero-speed Hall IC that has been optimized to the magnetic circuit. This small package can be assembled simply and used in conjunction with gears of various shapes and sizes.
The device incorporates a dual-element Hall IC that switches in response to differential magnetic signals created by a ferrous target. Digital processing of the analog signal provides zerospeed performance independent of air gap as well as dynamic adaptation of device performance to the typical operating conditions found in automotive applications (reduced vibration sensitivity). High-resolution peak detecting DACs are used to set the adaptive switching thresholds of the device. Switchpoint hysteresis reduces the negative effects of any anomalies in the magnetic signal associated with the targets used in many automotive applications. This device is optimized for crank applications that utilize targets that possess signature regions.
The ATS625 is provided in a 4-pin SIP. It is lead (Pb) free, with 100% matte tin plated leadframe.
