The TMAG5170-Q1 is a 3-axis linear Hall effect sensor designed forautomotive and industrial applications. This device integrates 3 independent Hall sensors in X, Y,and Z axes. A precision analog signal-chain along with integrated 12-bit ADC digitizes the measuredanalog magnetic field values. The SPI interface can be used by an external micro-controller toconfigure the device, start a conversion, or to read back the device register data. On-chipintegrated temperature sensor data is available for multiple system functions such as safety checkand temperature compensation for a given magnetic field measurement.
The TMAG5170-Q1 can be configured through the SPI to enable any numberof magnetic axes and temperature measurements for a particular application. DedicatedALERT pin enables low-power system operation, and can be used by amicro-controller to trigger a new conversion.
The device is offered in two different orderables for separate magnetic field ranges.Each orderable part can be configured further to select one of three magnetic field ranges thatsuits the magnet strength and component placements during system calibration. The high level ofintegration provides flexibility and cost effectiveness in a wide array of sensing systemimplementations.
The device performs consistently across a wide ambient temperature range of –40 °C to+150 °C.
