DESCRIPTION
AEC-Q100 automotive qualified
Unipolar switchpoints
Resistant to physical stress
Superior temperature stability
Output short-circuit protection
Operation from unregulated supply
Reverse-battery protection
Solid-state reliability
Small package sizes
The A1120, A1121, A1122, A1123, and A1125 Hall-effect
unipolar switches are extremely temperature-stable and
stress-resistant sensor ICs, especially suited for operation
over extended temperature ranges to 150°C. Superior hightemperature performance is made possible through dynamic
offset cancellation, which reduces the residual offset voltage
normally caused by device overmolding, temperature
dependencies, and thermal stress.
Each device includes on a single silicon chip a voltage regulator,
Hall-voltage generator, small-signal amplifier, chopper
stabilization, Schmitt trigger, and a short-circuit protected
open-drain output to sink up to 25 mA.
Packages:
An on-board regulator permits operation with supply voltages
of 3 to 24 V. The advantage of operating down to 3 V is that
the device can be used in 3 V applications or with additional
external resistance in series with the supply pin for greater
protection against high-voltage transient events.
3-pin SOT23W
(suffix LH)
(A1120)
(A1121, A1122,
A1123, and A1125)
3-pin SIP (suffix UA)
Not to scale
For the A1120, A1121, A1122, and A1123, a south pole of
sufficient strength turns the output on. Removal of the magnetic
field turns the output off. The A1125 is complementary, in that
for these devices, a south pole turns the A1125 output off, and
removal of the magnetic field turns the output on.
Two package styles provide a magnetically optimized package
for most applications. Package type LH is a modified SOT23W,
surface-mount package, while UA is a three-lead ultra-mini
SIP for through-hole mounting. Each package type is lead
(Pb) free (suffix, –T), with a 100% matte-tin-plated leadframe.

Functional Description
Operation
The output of the A1120, A1121, A1122, and A1123 devices
switches low (turns on) when a magnetic field perpendicular to
the Hall element exceeds the operate point threshold, BOP (see
panel A of figure 1). When the magnetic field is reduced below
the release point, BRP , the device output goes high (turns off).
The output of the A1125 devices switches high (turns off) when
a magnetic field perpendicular to the Hall element exceeds the
operate point threshold, BOP (see panel B of figure 1). When the
magnetic field is reduced below the release point, BRP , the device
output goes low (turns on).
After turn-on, the output voltage is VOUT(SAT) . The output transistor is capable of sinking current up to the short circuit current
limit, IOM, which is a minimum of 30 mA.
The difference in the magnetic operate and release points is the
hysteresis, BHYS , of the device. This built-in hysteresis allows
clean switching of the output even in the presence of external
mechanical vibration and electrical noise. Powering-on the device
in the hysteresis range (less than BOP and higher than BRP) will

It is strongly recommended that an external bypass capacitor be
connected (in close proximity to the Hall element) between the
supply and ground of the device to reduce external noise in the
application. As is shown in panel B of figure 1, a 0.1 µF capacitor

Chopper-Stabilized Precision Hall-Effect Switches
Chopper Stabilization Technique
When using Hall effect technology, a limiting factor for
switchpoint accuracy is the small signal voltage developed across
the Hall element. This voltage is disproportionally small relative
to the offset that can be produced at the output of the Hall element. This makes it difficult to process the signal while maintaining an accurate, reliable output over the specified operating
temperature and voltage ranges.
Chopper stabilization is a unique approach used to minimize
Hall offset on the chip. The patented Allegro technique, namely
Dynamic Quadrature Offset Cancellation, removes key sources
of the output drift induced by thermal and mechanical stresses.
This offset reduction technique is based on a signal modulationdemodulation process. The undesired offset signal is separated
from the magnetic field-induced signal in the frequency domain,
through modulation. The subsequent demodulation acts as a
modulation process for the offset, causing the magnetic field
induced signal to recover its original spectrum at baseband, while
the dc offset becomes a high-frequency signal. The magnetic
sourced signal then can pass through a low-pass filter, while the
modulated DC offset is suppressed. This configuration is illustrated in figure 2.
The chopper stabilization technique uses a 400 kHz high frequency clock. For demodulation process, a sample and hold
technique is used, where the sampling is performed at twice the
chopper frequency (800 kHz). This high-frequency operation
allows a greater sampling rate, which results in higher accuracy
and faster signal-processing capability. This approach desensitizes the chip to the effects of thermal and mechanical stresses,
and produces devices that have extremely stable quiescent Hall
output voltages and precise recoverability after temperature
cycling. This technique is made possible through the use of a
BiCMOS process, which allows the use of low-offset, low-noise
amplifiers in combination with high-density logic integration and
sample-and-hold circuits.
The repeatability of magnetic field-induced switching is affected
slightly by a chopper technique. However, the Allegro high
frequency chopping approach minimizes the affect of jitter and
makes it imperceptible in most applications. Applications that are
more likely to be sensitive to such degradation are those requiring
precise sensing of alternating magnetic fields; for example, speed
sensing of ring-magnet targets. For such applications, Allegro
recommends its digital device families with lower sensitivity
to jitter. For more information on those devices, contact your
Allegro sales representative.

Power Derating
The device must be operated below the maximum junction
temperature of the device, TJ(max). Under certain combinations of
peak conditions, reliable operation may require derating supplied
power or improving the heat dissipation properties of the application. This section presents a procedure for correlating factors
affecting operating TJ. (Thermal data is also available on the
Allegro MicroSystems website.)
The Package Thermal Resistance, RθJA, is a figure of merit summarizing the ability of the application and the device to dissipate
heat from the junction (die), through all paths to the ambient air.
Its primary component is the Effective Thermal Conductivity, K,
of the printed circuit board, including adjacent devices and traces.
Radiation from the die through the device case, RθJC, is relatively
small component of RθJA. Ambient air temperature, TA, and air
motion are significant external factors, damped by overmolding.
The effect of varying power levels (Power Dissipation, PD), can
be estimated. The following formulas represent the fundamental
relationships used to estimate TJ, at PD. PD = VIN × IIN (1)
ΔT = PD × RθJA (2)
TJ = TA + ΔT
(3)
For example, given common conditions such as: TA= 25°C,
VCC = 12 V, ICC = 1.6 mA, and RθJA = 165 °C/W, then:
A worst-case estimate, PD(max), represents the maximum allowable power level (VCC(max), ICC(max)), without exceeding TJ(max),
at a selected RθJA and TA.
Example: Reliability for VCC at TA = 150°C, package LH, using a
minimum-K PCB.
Observe the worst-case ratings for the device, specifically: RθJA = 228°C/W, TJ(max) = 165°C, VCC(max) = 24 V, and
ICC(max) = 4 mA.
Calculate the maximum allowable power level, PD(max). First,
invert equation 3:
ΔTmax = TJ(max) – TA = 165 °C – 150 °C = 15 °C
This provides the allowable increase to TJ resulting from internal
power dissipation. Then, invert equation 2:
PD(max) = ΔTmax ÷ RθJA = 15°C ÷ 228 °C/W = 66 mW
Finally, invert equation 1 with respect to voltage:
VCC(est) = PD(max) ÷ ICC(max) = 66 mW ÷ 4 mA = 16.5 V
The result indicates that, at TA, the application and device can
dissipate adequate amounts of heat at voltages ≤ VCC(est).
Compare VCC(est) to VCC(max). If VCC(est) ≤ VCC(max), then reliable operation between VCC(est) and VCC(max) requires enhanced
RθJA. If VCC(est) ≥ VCC(max), then operation between VCC(est)
and VCC(max) is reliable under these conditions.
PD = VCC × ICC = 12 V × 1.6 mA = 19 mW
ΔT = PD × RθJA = 19 mW × 165 °C/W = 3°C
TJ = TA + ΔT = 25°C + 3°C = 28°C
