Micronas – HAL15xy SOT23 Multi-Purpose Switch Family

Fulfilling latest quality and functional safety standards as AEC-Q100 qualified and ISO 26262 compliant sensor solution.

HAL 15xy /HAL 16xy families consist of different Hall switches produced in CMOS technology. All sensors include a temperature-compensated Hall plate with active offset compensation, a comparator, and an output stage. Both families consist of 3-wire and 2-wire devices, the corresponding output stage being an open-drain output transistor and a current source respectively SOP is in Q1/Q2 2015

Samples are available.


  • Tiny SOT23-3L JEDEC TO236-Compliant package
  • Operates from 2,7 V to 24 V supply voltage
  • Power-on self test toggles the output: Activation can be triggered by the host
  • Magnetic characteristics are robust regarding mechanical stress effects
  • Short-circuit protected open-drain output and thermal shut down for 3-wire applications
