Introduce a linear Hall sensor to your design with the LIN HALL Click Board™. The board includes a Melexis MLX90242 linear Hall sensor IC along with an MCP3201 12-bit ADC. LIN HALL Click Board™ outputs a signal that is linearly proportional to the flux density of a magnetic field it is exposed to. A north pole magnet field will increase the output, while a south pole field decreases it. Using the MikroBUS SPI lines (CS,.SCK, MISO),
LIN HALL Click Board™ communicates with the target board microcontroller. It uses either a 3.3V or 5V power supply (default is 3.3V).
The linear Hall sensors are used to infer the linear or rotary position of a target object, provided there is a magnet attached or something to disturb an existing magnetic field. It is an ideal choice to measure the strength of different magnets or measure the distance of a magnet from the sensor.
