NVE Introduces The World’s Most Sensitive Magnetic Switch
AFL006 offers four oersted operate point for ultrahigh sensitivity

AAT-Series Operation
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—July 26, 2017—NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC) today announced the introduction of the the AFL006, the newest member of the company’s industry-leading family of magnetic switches, with a remarkable 4 oersted typical operate point.
Key AFL006 features include:
  • Four oersted operate point for ultrahigh sensitivity
  • 0.9 volt to two volt operating voltage for single-cell battery operation
  • Power less than 100 microwatts
  • 2.5 by 2.5 by 0.8 millimeter TDFN6 package for miniaturization

Applications include portable instruments, utility meters, and noncontact overcurrent protection.

Like most of our GMR switches, the AFL006 is omnipolar, meaning the applied field can be of either polarity, and the operate point is extremely stable over supply voltage and temperature. Magnetic hysteresis is low for precise operation.

There are now three off-the-shelf versions of NVE’s AFL-Series ultrasensitive low-voltage magnetic switch family, with operate points of four and ten oersteds. Nominal supply voltages are 1.5 volts (for alkaline button cell power sources), and three volts (for lithium power sources). The sensors are packaged in three millimeter TDFN6 leadless packages and three millimeter MSOP8 packages.
All three parts are in stock and available for immediate delivery.

Available now, AFL006-10E sensors are priced at $3.70 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.
