The Hall effect is most pronounced in semiconductors. Hall-effect devices are commonly used to determine the type and concentration of free carriers of semiconductor samples. Gaussmeters (often called Teslameters) use a Hall element to measure magnetic flux density , by generating output voltage proportional to the magnetic field. Special attention is given to the design of the accompanying Hall-effect probes. In integrated circuits technology, Hall effect is used for sensors and switches. In sensors, the magnetic flux density through the Hall element determines the output voltage; in switches, it determines the switching state. Hall- effect sensor operation is robust with respect to environmental conditions. McGill – ECE – ECSE 351 Electromagnetic Fields – Prof. M. Popovic

Linear Hall sensors- Their industrial applications include measurement of angle, current, position and distance, and pressure, force, and torque sensors. In automotive industry: * for active suspension control, * headlight range adjustment, * liquid level sensors, * power steering, . ... With very low energy consumption (a fraction of a mW), linear Hall sensors are more efficient and cost- effective than most inductive and optoelectronic sensors. McGill – ECE – ECSE 351 Electromagnetic Fields – Prof. M. Popovic
Hall-effect switches are more cost-effective than most electromechanical switches. * commutation of brushless DC motors, * wheel speed sensors, * measurement of rotations per minute, * pressure switches, * position-dependent switches, etc. The automotive industry uses Hall switches, * in ignition and wiper systems, * door locks, * window raising controls, * retraction roof controls and for * break light switches. In the computer industry , this type of switch is used in keyboards.
