RE: The tariff classification of electromagnetic sensor from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Larson:

In your letter dated August 11, 1989, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Optoelectronics, Inc., Richardson, Texas.

The electromagnetic sensor is described in your letter as a solid state device assembled in Mexico using a silicon chip, a frame, gold wire, molding epoxy, silver epoxy, and chip coating. The chip operates using the "Hall Effect" whereby a current carrying semiconductor exposed to a magnetic field perpendicular to the current direction produces a voltage perpendicular to both the direction of the current and the magnetic field.

The applicable subheading for the electromagnetic sensor will be 8541.50.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "[o]ther semiconductor devices." The rate of duty will be 1 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177)

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
