Highly integrated Hall Sensors by Infineon Reduce Systems Costs Significantly


Infineon Technologies AG brings new Hall sensors for automotive, industrial and consumer electronics meeting strict environmental standards. Being compact in design and cost-effective – the Hall sensors of the new TLx496x family are touted to be highly integrated, precise switching points, a stable operation and a low power consumption. They are available as latch and switch-type sensors.

  • Moreover, the new Hall sensors consume not more than 1.6 mA.
  • And the 5-V versions only consume 1.4 mA.
  • The high ESD robustness and the precise, stable magnetic switching points are suitable for systems where energy efficiency, robustness and precision matter.
  • Reducing system costs, two to four of the previously needed passive components are now redundant, which also reduces the amount of space they take up on the circuit board.
  • All of the TLx496x Hall sensors – switches and latches – have an integrated Hall element, a voltage regulator, choppers, an oscillator and an output driver. The voltage regulator powers the Hall element and the active circuits.

Optimized for 5-Volt systems for automotive applications: TLE496x 

  • The TLE496x-xM series is suitable for automotive applications with an operating voltage of 3.0 V to 5.5 V, which generally are not exposed to overcurrent. Target applications are all systems that need a precise Hall switch or Hall latch for an expanded temperature range of -40 °C to 170 °C.
  • The TLE496x-xM is typically used in power windows and sunroofs, trunk locks, windshield wipers, seatbelts, camshafts, shift levers and the many controls used in BLDC motors.
  • The latches’ (TLE4963-1M/2M) magnetic behavior and switching points make them particularly suitable for applications with precise index counting (for pole wheels or the recording of the rotor position) and for BLDC motors.
  • The Hall switch (TLE4965-5M) is particularly suitable for the recording of switch and lever positions and the detection of open/close states.

Optimized for 5-Volt systems for industrial applications: TLI496x 

  • The TLI496x-xM series is functionally the same as the TLE496x-xM but is specified for a temperature range of -40 °C to 125 °C and is JESD47 qualified.
  • The TLI496x-xM is typically used in BLDC motors in e-bikes and fans in PCs, in electric drives in building automation (such as blinds and garage doors) as well as the detection of open/close states in white goods and building security/burglar protection.

Optimized for cost-sensitive consumer electronics: TLV496x 

  • The TLV496x-xTA/B series was specifically developed for the cost-effective, contactless positioning.
  • Typical applications are BLDC motors in white goods (such as dishwashers and washing machines), compressors in air-conditioners, fans in PCs as well as blinds, garden tools and building security/burglar protection (e. g. door and window contacts, gates and roller shutters).
  • Despite the pressure to cut costs, these applications need very precise Hall latches or Hall switches (unipolar/bipolar) for temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 125 °C.
