Leveraging Magnetic Sensitivity for Better Device Design
White Paper Overview
The degree of magnetic sensitivity of a digital sensor can affect the number of sensors required within a device, the grade/cost needed for a magnet as well as the distance and range for activation or detection. Understanding the role and behavior of digital magnetic sensors and sensitivity is essential in order to achieve cost-effective design of electronic applications within major markets such as industrial automation, white goods, security and metering.
TMR sensors are an emerging technology for detecting and quantifying the magnitude of a magnetic field; they offer several advantages over earlier types of magnetic sensors, including extremely low power consumption, high magnetic sensitivity, robustness and small size.
This white paper discusses the importance of leveraging magnetic sensitivity for better device design.
