This new lineup of ABLICs automotive Hall effect ICs are delivered in a 0.5mm HSNT-6(2025) package, the worlds thinnest, which is roughly half the thickness in comparison to our previous package as well as other companies packages(*3). As a result, the adjustment dials of air conditioners, navigation systems, and other modules can be designed thinner and smaller for better operation, while thinner power window motors can be more design-friendly. Although these products come in an ultra-thin package, the pins protrude from the sides of the outer lead package to allow automated visual inspection to confirm that the pins are properly soldered to the board. A TSOT-23-3S package permitting automated visual inspection is also available.
