Broadcom’s ACHS-719x sensor ICs have a compact, surface mountable, SO-8 package that meets worldwide regulatory safety standards

The Broadcom ACHS-719x (±10 A to ±50 A) fully integrated Hall effect-based isolated linear current sensors are designed for AC or DC current sensing in industrial, commercial, and communications systems.


Inside each ACHS-719x IC is a precise, low-offset, linear Hall circuit with a copper conduction path located near the surface of the die. Applied current flowing through this copper conduction path generates a magnetic field that the differential Hall sensors convert into a proportional voltage. Device accuracy is optimized across the operating ambient temperature through the close proximity of the magnetic signal to the Hall sensors. A precise, proportional voltage is provided by the low-offset, chopper-stabilized CMOS Hall IC, programmed for accuracy after packaging. The output of the device has a positive slope (>VOUT(Q)) when an increasing current flows through the primary copper conduction path (from pins 1 and 2 to pins 3 and 4), which is the path used for current sampling. The internal resistance of this conductive path is 0.7 mΩ typical, providing low power loss. The terminals of the conductive path are electrically isolated from the signal leads (pins 5 through 8). This performance is delivered in a compact, surface-mountable, SO-8 package that meets worldwide regulatory safety standards.
