Honeywell Sensing and Control nanopower AMR sensor featured
Honeywell Sensing and Control recently released the industry’s first nanopower Anisotropic Magneto Resistive (AMR) sensor ICs with current draws as low as 310 nA (Figure 1). This is a significant development in sensor technology for a number of reasons, but principally because the durable AMR sensors can be leveraged in battery-powered applications at a price, power, and performance comparable to that of reed relays. In addition, the higher sensitivity of the omnipolar AMR sensors provides design flexibility over Hall effect sensors that reduce system cost.
