Diodes' AH9246, AH9250, and AH9251 are integrated, yet small, simple, and flexible contactless switch solution options, for multiple applications

Diodes' AH9246, AH9250, and AH9251 are ultra-high- to medium-sensitivity, micropower, omnipolar, Hall-effect switch ICs, designed for portable and battery-powered consumer equipment, home appliances, and industrial applications.  Based on a single Hall plate and chopper-stabilized architecture, they provide reliable solutions over the whole operating range. This family of Hall-effect switches is optimized to operate over the supply range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V and incorporates a micropower sleep function to give an average supply current of only 8 μA. AH9246, AH9250, and AH9251 have push-pull output structures; therefore, an external pull-up resistor is not required. They are available in industry-standard SC59 and TO92S packages.

Features and Benefits
  • Omnipolar family with operating switch-point options and internal pull-up
    • Operates with either a north or south pole
