HIGH SENSITIVITY MICROPOWER OMNIPOLAR HALL-EFFECT SWITCH
The AH9249 is an ultra-sensitive Hall-effect switch with digital latched
output, mainly designed for battery-operation, hand-held equipments.
Special CMOS process is used for low-voltage and low-power
requirement. A chopper stabilized amplifier improves stability of
magnetic switch points. A sleep-awake logic controls the IC in sleep
time or awake time. This function will reduce the average operating
current of the IC. During the awake time, the output is changed with
the magnetic flux density. During the sleep time, the output is latched
in its previous state and the current consumption will reduce to some
The IC switching behaviour is omnipolar, either north or south pole
sufficient strength will turn the output on. If the magnetic flux density
is larger than operating point(BOP), the output will be turned on; if it is
less than releasing point(BRP), the output will be turned off.
The AH9249 is available in TO-92S-3, SOT-23-3 and DFN-2×2-3
packages which are optimized for most applications.
