This device complements the existing MLX91208 products which cover low field and high field functions. Thanks to the proprietary integrated magnetic concentrator (IMC) technology employed, the sensors in the AEC-Q100-qualified MLX91208 series can accurately measure current without the need for inclusion of the bulky external ferromagnetic cores that are required for conventional Hall-effect current sensors.
The innovative IMC structure concentrates the magnetic flux and thereby enhances sensor performance. Melexis' IMC-Hall devices thus enable significant savings in board real estate and simplify the assembly process as they are housed in compact surface mount standard SOIC8 packages.
