Micronas Presents Entry-Level Sensor With Advanced Diagnostic Capabilities

Freiburg --- Micronas expands its Hall-effect sensor HAL 18xy family with the HAL 1860, a small, robust and cost-effective solution with output signal supervision capabilities. Several programmable output signal clamping levels extend error signaling capabilities to indicate various fault conditions like under/overvoltage, under/overflow of the signal path, or overcurrent. A one-pin programming interface enables simultaneous programming of several devices through the output pins. Other major sensor characteristics like magnetic field range, sensitivity, offset and temperature coefficients are programmable in a non-volatile memory.

Thanks to the aforementioned benefits, the HAL 1860 is the optimal system solution to measure small angle (<90°) or linear displacement (few mm) in stringent applications. For example, it can be used as gear position detection sensor in dual clutch automatic transmission or steering torque sensor for industrial/recreational vehicles.

The HAL 1860 is qualified according to AEC-Q100 and is packaged in an industry standard 3-pin TO92-UA, lead (Pb) free, with matte tin leadframe plating. It comes with two lead forming configurations: an inline version with 1.27 mm pin-to-pin spacing or alternatively a spread version with 2.54 mm pin-to-pin spacing, better suited for welding process.

Samples are available now. Start of production is planned for early 2017.
