Small Size Axis Analog Magnetic Sensors

Small Size Axis Analog Magnetic Sensors

Magnetic sensing solutions designed for accuracy, sensitivity, and reliable measurements of external magnetic fields for compassing and magnetometry.

The HMC104X and HMC105X family of magnetoresistive sensors offer a compact and highly reliable solution for low field magnetic sensing. The advantages of these patented chips include orthogonal precision two-axis sensing (HMC1052L) in a miniature surface mount package. Each of the magneto-resistive sensors are configured as a four-element Wheatstone bridge to convert magnetic fields to differential output voltages. These sensors also include patented on-die straps for offset and set/reset functions.

Our HMC104X family of very small size magnetoresistive sensors permits cost effective, high performance and space-efficient applications. The subminiature size and low-height (1.05 mm) of the HMC1041Z makes this sensor ideal for highly integrated, portable products like global positioning systems (GPS) receivers and watches.

Products in the family include: HMC1041Z / HMC1051Z / HMC1051ZL / HMC1052L / HMC1053
