    Sun Roof

    Hall switches are used to determine the position of the window pane by measuring the motion direction as well as counting the revolutions of the window lifter motor. This can be realized either by using dual-Hall-plate switches or with a cheaper single-Hall-plate solution that counts the revolutions while the motion direction of the motor is determined by the control unit.

    Door Lock

    Hall switches are used to detect whether the car doors are locked or not. By skipping the third wire, the 2-wire sensor type is preferred for this kind of application in order to save costs.
    Brushless actuators allow tamper-proof lock design.

    Buckle Switch

    Hall switches are often used to detect whether the seat belts are used and the buckle holder is latched. Due to the greater distance from the sensor to the control unit, a 2-wire Hall switch is often the preferred sensor type for cost-saving reasons. Depending on the application setup, a unipolar or latching type can be used.

    Bending Lights

    Adaptive Headlights technology enhances the safety and convenience of the driver, especially when driving at night. For instance, the headlights are swiveled horizontally towards the inside of a bend when cornering. 
    Hall-effect sensors are widely used to detect the orientation of the light beam within the Adaptive Headlights module. The “zero-position” of the swivel module, i.e. the position in the straight-ahead position of the vehicle, is generally given by a Hall-effect switch, sometime programmable to perfectly match the switching point to the zero-position.

    HVAC

    HVAC actuators are typically small stepper motors. Micronas HVC products offer suitable small and highly integrated one-chip all-inclusive solutions with low current ripple (acoustic noise), supporting LIN auto-addressing (bus shunt method), different driving schemes (current-controlled, auto speed) and stall detection.

    Blower and Flap Control – AGM

    The Active Grill Shutter application is deploying quickly in automotive as it provides with efficient reduction of emission and gas savings. Conventional actuators use stepper motors but there is a trends towards BLDC. TDK-Micronas’ highly integrated on-chip solutions enable higher torque at higher temperature, smaller size and more sophisticated control.

    Seat - Position

    Like the buckle switch, the seat position detection is one part of the airbag control system. The task of the Hall switch is to determine in what zone the seat is currently positioned along the seat track. 2-wire switches are the preferred solution.
