Micronas Semiconductor Holding AG, a supplier of IC and sensor system solutions, has been selected by Hamlin as its preferred supplier of Hall sensors.

"Having Micronas' technology and technical support expands Hamlin's custom sensor solutions capabilities," said Phil James, managing director of Hamlin.

Micronas claims to be the first company to offer fully programmable Hall sensors, where the Hall plate, the DSP block and the EEPROM were integrated into one chip manufactured in pure CMOS technology. Further, Micronas said that the contactless measurement principle makes its Hall sensors immune to mechanical wear and environmental contaminants such as dirt, vibration and great temperature variations, resulting in a much higher level of reliability. Thus, Hall sensors are expected to be capable of replacing electromechanical potentiometers in many cases.
