NVE Fact Sheet

Overview NVE Corporation s 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’s award-winning products are smaller, more precise, higher speed, and more rugged than conventional devices.
