The new A1377 programmable linear Hall-effect sensor IC is designed for applications that require high accuracy and resolution without compromising bandwidth, claims Allegro MicroSystems.
The company says this new device uses segmented, linearly interpolated temperature compensation technology, which it’s claimed reduces the total error of the device across the whole temperature range. It is suited to linear and rotary position in automotive applications such as actuators and valves.
The A1377 is available in a through-hole, small form factor, single in-line package (SIP) and has a range of sensitivities and offset operating bandwidths. The company states the device’s sensitivity is adjustable within the range of 1 to 14mV/G.
