NVE Introduces The Worlds Most Sensitive
AFL006 offers four oersted operate point for ultrahigh sensitivity
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.July 26, 2017NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC)
today announced the introduction of the the AFL006, the newest member
of the companys 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
Power less than 100 microwatts
2.5 by 2.5 by 0.8 millimeter TDFN6 package
Applications include portable instruments, utility meters, and noncontact overcurrent
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 NVEs 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.
