The AH3722A/AH3724A is a high-voltage, high-sensitivity Hall-effect latch IC with internal pullup resistor designed for commutation of brushless DC motors, flow meters, linear encoders and position sensors in industrial, consumer home appliances and personal care applications.

To support a wide range of the demanding applications, the design is optimized to operate over the supply range of 3.0V to 28V. With chopper stabilized architecture and an internal bandgap regulator to provide temperature compensated supply for internal circuits, the AH3722A/AH3724A provides a reliable solution over the whole operating range. For robustness and protection, the device has a Zener clamp on the supply. The output has an overcurrent limit and a Zener clamp.

The internally pulled-up output can be switched on with South pole of sufficient strength and switched off with North pole of sufficient strength. When the magnetic flux density (B) perpendicular to the part marking surface is larger than the operate point (BOP) the output is switched on (pulled low). The output is held latched until the magnetic flux density reverses and becomes lower than the release point (BRP).
