Linear Hall-effect sensor with active error correction circuitry - MLX90242

Product description

Not recommended for new designs. Similar functionality provided by the MLX90290

The MLX90242 is a fix-programmed Linear Hall-effect sensor with a ratiometric analog output, available in different versions depending on the nominal sensitivity and the package type (SOT-23 Surface-Mount or 3-SIP-UA through-hole).

It features active error correction circuitry (Hall plate quadrature spinning current and chopper-stabilized amplifier), which virtually eliminates the offset errors normally associated with Hall-effect devices.
