Omnipolar Hall-effect switches designed for robust automotive applications
Diodes Incorporated has announced its new series of omnipolar Hall-effect switches, fully certified for automotive applications and qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 0. These devices are ideal for these rugged Hall-effect switches include position and proximity sensing, open and close detection, level detection and flow metering applications. The switches offer a broad operating voltage range of 3V to 28V with a notable 8kV HBM ESD rating.
As well as being fully certified to meet environmental, quality and regulatory requirements in the automotive industry, the AH356xQ series has been created to meet AEC-Q100 Grade 0, indicating it can work across an extended ambient temperature range of -40C to +150C. Other features comprise input supply reverse polarity and overvoltage protection, along with output overvoltage and overcurrent protection.
“These high-voltage rugged automotive-qualified omnipolar Hall-effect switches are well-suited for automotive proximity and level detection applications”, said Simon Ramsdale, worldwide automotive IC marketing manager for Diodes Incorporated. “Thanks to their Grade 0 qualification, these switches offer a great combination of performance and robustness.”
