SLIS150K March 2014 – August 2019 DRV5013
The DRV5013 device is a chopper-stabilized Hall sensor with a digital latched output for magnetic sensing applications. The DRV5013 device can be powered with a supply voltage between 2.5 and 38 V, and continuously survives continuous –22-V reverse-battery conditions. The DRV5013 device does not operate when –22 to 2.4 V is applied to the VCC pin (with respect to the GND pin). In addition, the device can withstand voltages up to 40 V for transient durations.
The field polarity is defined as follows: a south pole near the marked side of the package is a positive magnetic field. A north pole near the marked side of the package is a negative magnetic field.
The output state is dependent on the magnetic field perpendicular to the package. A south pole near the marked side of the package causes the output to pull low (operate point, BOP), and a north pole near the marked side of the package causes the output to release (release point, BRP). Hysteresis is included in between the operate point and the release point therefore magnetic-field noise does not accidentally trip the output.
An external pullup resistor is required on the OUT pin. The OUT pin can be pulled up to VCC, or to a different voltage supply. This allows for easier interfacing with controller circuits.
