A chopped Hall sensor for camshaft applications is presented which provides a programmable "True Power-on" switching level effective after the power-up phase. The proposed chopping technique and self-compensation methods for temperature drift and technology spread provide a correct output state immediately after power-on even at zero speed of the target wheel. The circuits improve the magnetic offsets from 5 to 10 mT to below 200 /spl mu/T in a bandwidth of 30 kHz and stabilize the spread of… CONTINUE READING
