NVE Introduces World’s Smallest Analog Sensor
AAL004-10E high-performance magnetometer is just 2.5 by 2.5 by 0.8 millimeters

AAT-Series Operation
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—April 5, 2017—NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC) today announced the introduction of the AAL004-10E spintronic Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) analog magnetometer sensor.

Packaged in an ultraminiature 2.5 millimeter by 2.5 millimeter by 0.8 millimeter TDFN6, the new part is billed as the world’s smallest high-performance integrated-circuit analog sensor.

The devices provide a precise output proportional to the applied magnetic field. Second-generation GMR materials provide extremely low hysteresis and excellent temperature stability.

Key AAL004-10E performance features include:
  • Output linear with magnetic fields as low as 1.5 oersteds for low-field applications
  • 3.5 millivolts per volt per oersted typical sensitivity for large output signals and low noise
  • Two percent maximum hysteresis for precision and repeatability
  • Omnipolar output for configuration flexibility
  • –40 to 125 degrees Celsius operating temperature
  • Ultraminiature 2.5 millimeter by 2.5 millimeter TDFN6 package

Available now, AAL004-10E sensors are priced at $2.57 each in 1,000-piece quantities. Datasheets and more information are available at www.nve.com.

NVE is a leader in the practical commercialization of spintronics, a nanotechnology that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store and transmit information. The company manufactures high-performance spintronic products including sensors and couplers that are used to acquire and transmit data. NVE has also licensed its spintronic magnetoresistive random access memory technology, commonly known as MRAM.
