ACS706ELC05C-DS, Rev. 3
The device consists of a precision, low-offset linear Hall circuit with a copper
conduction path located near the surface of the die. Applied current flowing
through this copper conduction path generates a magnetic field which the Hall
IC converts into a proportional voltage. Device accuracy is optimized through
the close proximity of the magnetic signal to the Hall transducer. A precise,
proportional voltage is provided by the low-offset, chopper-stabilized BiCMOS
Hall IC, which is programmed for accuracy at the factory.
The output of the device has a positive slope (>VCC / 2) when an increasing current
flows through the primary copper conduction path (from pins 1 and 2, to pins 3
and 4), which is the path used for current sampling. The internal resistance of this
conductive path is typically 1.5 mΩ, providing low power loss. The thickness
of the copper conductor allows survival of the device at up to 5× overcurrent
conditions. The terminals of the conductive path are electrically isolated from the
signal leads (pins 5 through 8). This allows the ACS706 to be used in applications
requiring electrical isolation without the use of opto-isolators or other costly
isolation techniques.
The ACS706 is provided in a small, surface mount SOIC8 package. The leadframe
is plated with 100% matte tin, which is compatible with standard lead (Pb) free
printed circuit board assembly processes. Internally, the flip-chip uses hightemperature Pb-based solder balls, currently exempt from RoHS. The device is
fully calibrated prior to shipment from the factory.

Definitions of Accuracy Characteristics
Sensitivity (Sens). The change in device output in response to a 1 A change through the primary conductor. The sensitivity is the product of the magnetic circuit sensitivity (G / A) and the linear IC amplifier gain (mV/G). The linear IC amplifier gain is programmed at the
factory to optimize the sensitivity (mV/A) for the full-scale current of the device.
Noise (VNOISE). The product of the linear IC amplifier gain (mV/G) and the noise floor for the Allegro Hall effect linear IC (≈1 G).
The noise floor is derived from the thermal and shot noise observed in Hall elements. Dividing the noise (mV) by the sensitivity
(mV/A) provides the smallest current that the device is able to resolve.
Linearity (ELIN): The degree to which the voltage output from the device varies in direct proportion to the primary current through its
full-scale amplitude. Nonlinearity in the output can be attributed to the saturation of the flux concentrator approaching the full-scale
current. The following equation is used to derive the linearity:
{ [
100 1–
(Vout_full-scale amperes – VOUT(Q) )
2 (Vout_half-scale amperes – VOUT(Q) )
[{
where Vout_full-scale amperes = the output voltage (V) when the sensed current approximates full-scale ±IP .
Symmetry (ESYM). The degree to which the absolute voltage output from the device varies in proportion to either a positive or negative full-scale primary current. The following formula is used to derive symmetry:
100
Vout_+full-scale amperes – VOUT(Q)
VOUT(Q) –Vout_–full-scale amperes
Quiescent output voltage (VOUT(Q)). The output of the device when the primary current is zero. For a unipolar supply voltage, it
nominally remains at VCC ⁄ 2. Thus, VCC = 5 V translates into VOUT(Q) = 2.5 V. Variation in VOUT(Q) can be attributed to the resolution
of the Allegro linear IC quiescent voltage trim and thermal drift.
Electrical offset voltage (VOE). The deviation of the device output from its ideal quiescent value of VCC / 2 due to nonmagnetic causes.
To convert this voltage to amperes, divide by the device sensitivity, Sens.
Accuracy (ETOT). The accuracy represents the maximum deviation of the actual output from its ideal value. This is also known as the
total ouput error. The accuracy is illustrated graphically in the Output Voltage versus Current chart on the following page.
Accuracy is divided into four areas:
 0 A at 25°C. Accuracy at zero current flow at 25°C, without the effects of temperature.
 0 A over Δ temperature. Accuracy at zero current flow including temperature effects.
 Full-scale current at 25°C. Accuracy at the full-scale current at 25°C, without the effects of temperature.
 Full-scale current over Δ temperature. Accuracy at full-scale current flow including temperature effects.
Ratiometry. The ratiometric feature means that its 0 A output, VOUT(Q), (nominally equal to VCC/2) and sensitivity, Sens, are proportional to its supply voltage, VCC . The following formula is used to derive the ratiometric change in 0 A output voltage, VOUT(Q)RAT (%):

VIOUT(Q)VCC /VIOUT(Q)5V

Propagation delay (tPROP): The time required for the device output to reflect a change in the primary current signal. Propagation delay is attributed to inductive loading within the linear IC package, as well as in the

Chopper Stabilization Technique
Chopper Stabilization is an innovative circuit technique that is used to minimize the offset voltage of a Hall
element and an associated on-chip amplifier. Allegro patented a Chopper Stabilization technique that nearly
eliminates Hall IC output drift induced by temperature or package stress effects. This offset reduction technique
is based on a signal modulation-demodulation process. Modulation is used to separate the undesired dc offset
signal from the magnetically induced signal in the frequency domain. Then, using a low-pass filter, the modulated dc offset is suppressed while the magnetically induced signal passes through the filter. As a result of this
chopper stabilization approach, the output voltage from the Hall IC is desensitized to the effects of temperature
and mechanical stress. This technique produces devices that have an extremely stable Electrical Offset Voltage,
are immune to thermal stress, and have precise recoverability after temperature cycling.
This technique is made possible through the use of a BiCMOS process that allows the use of low-offset and
low-noise amplifiers in combination with high-density logic integration and sample and hold circuits.

Applications Information
Transient Common-Mode Voltage Rejection in the ACS706
In order to quantify transient common-mode voltage rejection for the ACS706, a device was soldered onto a printed
circuit board. A 0.1 μF bypass capacitor and a 5 V dc power supply were connected between VCC and GND (pins 8 and
5) for this device. A 10 kΩ load resistor and a 0.01 μF capacitor were connected in parallel between the VOUT pin and
the GND pin of the device (pins 7 and 5).

ACS706 Schematic Diagram of the Circuit used to Measure Transient Rejection
A function generator was connected between the primary current conductor (pins 1 thru 4) and the GND pin of
the device (pin 5). This function generator was configured to generate a 10 V peak (20 V peak-to-peak) sine
wave between pins 1-4 and pin 5. Note that the sinusoidal stimulus was applied such that no electrical current
would flow through the copper conductor composed of pins 1-4 of this device.
The frequency of this sine wave was varied from 60 Hz to 5 MHz in discrete steps. At each frequency, the
statistics feature of an oscilloscope was used to measure the voltage variations (noise) on the ACS706 output
in mV (peak to peak). The noise was measured both before and after the application of the stimulus. Transient
common-mode voltage rejection as a function of frequency is shown in the following figure.

The Effect of PCB Layout on ACS706 Thermal Performance
Eight different PC boards were fabricated to characterize the effect of PCB design on the operating junction temperature of the
Hall-effect IC inside of the ACS706. These PC boards are shown in the figure below.

An ACS706 device was soldered on to each PCB for thermal testing. The results of the testing are shown in the following table.

Improved PC Board Designs
The eight PC boards in the figure above do not represent an ideal PC board for use with the ACS706. The ACS706 evaluation
boards, for sale at the Allegro Web site On-Line Store, represent a more optimal PC board design (see photo below). On the
evaluation boards, the current to be sensed flows through very wide traces that were fabricated using 2 layers of 2 oz. copper.
Thermal management tests were conducted on the Allegro evaluation boards and all tests were performed using the same test
conditions described in the bulleted list above. The results for these thermal tests are shown in the table below. When using
the Allegro evaluation boards we see that even at an applied current of 20 A the junction temperature of the ACS706 is only
≈30 degrees above ambient temperature.
