    Very interesting. I've seen larger-current parts, obviously for large
    motor drives/hybrid vehicles, but never available off-the-shelf or so
    affordably. Newark's price is about $3 in small quantity and I can
    think of all sorts of things that this makes feasible to me now.

    Hello Win,

    Thanks! I took the liberty to post a similar message in the German
    electronics newsgroup. Of course not without quoting you as the source.

    Digikey states $1.62 for 3000qty. That comes dang close to the usual
    toroid solution except that it is unlikely that there'd be a 2nd source
    for a long time.

    Regards, Joerg

    Hello Marte,
    ROFL! I bet it did, huh? It's scary what's out on the web these days,
    especially when thinking about kids who could come across that.

    Anyway, try:
    To me it's the really low price of the Allegro parts that Win mentioned.
    This might allow their use in situations where so far cost had ruled out
    a good Hall sensor solution.

    Regards, Joerg
