Abstract

The present paper focuses on various aspects regarding Hall Effect sensors’ design, integration, and behavior analysis. In order to assess their performance, different Hall Effect geometries were tested for Hall voltage, sensitivity, offset, and temperature drift. The residual offset was measured both with an automated measurement setup and by manual switching of the individual phases. To predict Hall sensors performance prior to integration, three-dimensional physical simulations were performed.
Keywords: Hall Effect sensors; residual offset; absolute sensitivity; temperature effects Hall Effect sensors; residual offset; absolute sensitivity; temperature effects
