NVE Introduces High-Field GMR Magnetometer Sensor
AAK001-10E precisely senses magnetic fields up to four kilooersteds

AAK001EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—August 30, 2017—NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC) today announced the AAK001-10E High-Field Analog Magnetometer Sensor for precise sensing of magnetic fields up to four kilooersteds (400 millitesla).

NVE’s proprietary Giant Magnetoresistive (GMR) technology provides precision over a wide field range. The sensors respond from zero field to four kilooersteds, and are highly linear from 400 oersteds to 2.5 kilooersteds.

In addition to accommodating high fields, with its 1.1 by 1.1 millimeter package, the AAK001-14E is now NVE’s smallest analog sensor.

Unique features include:
  • Precise sensing of fields up to four kilooersteds (400 millitesla)
  • Sensitive to any direction in the device plane
  • Ratiometric Wheatstone bridge outputs
  • Any operating supply voltage up to 12 volts
  • 3.5 kilohm bridge resistance for both low power and low output impedance
  • Ultraminiature 1.1 by 1.1 millimeter package
Applications include brushless DC motors, motor commutator sensors, noncontact high-current measurement, and other harsh industrial applications.
NVE’s unique GMR magnetometer line includes a variety of measurement ranges, sensitivities, packages, and temperature ranges:
