Technology- AMR Magnetic Sensors
MEMSIC's Anisotropic Magneto-Resistive (AMR) magnetic sensor technology is used in 10's of millions of Smartphones and Tablets. In an AMR sensor, the resistance of the sensor varies with the applied magnetic field.
Due to its low noise, high accuracy, and more complex structure, this technology has historically been used in higher end industrial and avionics applications. But through innovation and investment in a low-cost, high volume manufacturing capability, MEMSIC was the first to bring this technology into parity with lower cost, lower performance approaches such as Hall Sensors.
