HIGH SENSITIVITY MICROPOWER
OMNIPOLAR HALL-EFFECT SWITCH
The AH1893 is a high sensitivity micropower Omnipolar Hall effect
switch IC with internal pull up and pull down capability. Designed for
portable and battery powered equipment such as cellular phones and
portable PCs to home appliances and industrial applications, the
average supply current is only 4.3µA at 1.85V. To support potable
equipment the AH1893 can operate over the supply range of 1.6V to
3.6V and uses a hibernating clocking system to minimize the power
consumption. To minimize PCB space the AH1893 is available in
small low profile X1-DFN1216-4 and SOT553 packages.
The output is activated with either a north or south pole of sufficient
magnetic field strength. When the magnetic flux density (B)
perpendicular to the package is larger than operate point (Bop), the
output will be turned on (pulled low) and held until B is lower than
release point (Brp).
