Wheel-Speed Sensors Come In Unique Package Offering

Allegro MicroSystems introduces a package for its wheel speed sensor product family that includes an optimized Hall-effect IC, rare-earth pellet, and high-temperature ceramic capacitor in a single over-molded package. The combo reduces the need for external EMC protection and integration of a magnetic circuit, reducing manufacturing complexity. The ATS688LSN provides true zero-speed digital gear tooth sensing in two-wire applications, such as automotive or two-wheeler braking systems.

 

The single integrated circuit and magnet combination incorporates a dual element Hall-effect sensor IC and signal processing circuitry that switches in response to differential magnetic signals created by a rotating ferromagnetic target. The device contains a sophisticated compensating circuit to eliminate magnetic and system offsets. Digital tracking of the analogue signal is used to achieve true zero-speed operation. Advanced calibration algorithms are used to adjust the device gain and offset at power-up, resulting in air gap independent switch points, which allegedly improves output accuracy and mitigates the effect of system anomalies such as target vibration and sudden changes in air gap. The regulated current output is configured for two-wire operation.
