Allegro MicroSystems’ A1152/3/5/6 line of two-wire, unipolar, Hall-effect switches complements its existing family of devices used in seat position sensing and other applications. These devices are targeted to serve the automotive market because they include improved high-voltage transient protection, which is a feature that is critical for applications that do not allow protection circuits to be located close to the sensor. They are factory-trimmed to optimize the accuracy of the magnetic switch points, and are used to sense seat track position, seatbelt buckle presence, hood/trunk latching, steering lock position, and in shift selectors.
