Isolator for Digital Lines Keeps Nasties Away
Galvanic isolation is your defense, and you can now add another tool to
your isolation kit...
Devices Move In (.pdf)
The Industrial Physicist
The discovery of GMR and advances in GMR materials have led to its current
and potential commercial applications for sensors, read heads, nonvolatile memory,
and galvanic isolators.
RAM Chips That Hold Memory When Power Is Off
NIST Special Publication 950-1
Researchers at NVE saw the use of GMR materials as a way to achieve advances
in signal strength, and they made important advances in the producibility of GMR

Receives NIST Award
The project is expected to lead to the miniaturization of one of the few
remaining components that has not kept pace with this trend in the electronics

Corruption, Preserve Purity With Analog-Signal Isolation (.pdf)
For years, analog designers have dreamed of ways to transmit signals across
an isolation barrier without modulation. Now, sensors that use the giant magnetoresistive
(GMR) effect offer that promise... Because the technology for depositing coils
atop silicon chips now also exists, another dream of analog designersmonolithic
isolation amplifiersis finally also within reach.
Hit the Highway
Nonvolatile Electronics, Inc. is marketing a low-cost line of tiny, power-efficient
magnetic sensors that offer greater sensitivity and temperature stability...

and Coded Particles Foil Counterfeiters
Two companies have devised ways to foil counterfeiters who forge money and
Advances New Computer Memory
A new class of computer memory devices that combine the durability of magnetic
storage with the small packaging and fast access times of silicon memory chip
technology has come one step closer to the marketplace, thanks to a teaming agreement
between the electronics giant Motorola and Nonvolatile Electronics, Inc.
Nonvolatile Electronics, Inc., or NVE (Plymouth, MN), plans this summer
to produce magnetic field sensors from a new material that makes them more sensitive
than current sensors.

Field of Dreams
Daughton, formerly a scientist at both IBM and Honeywell Inc., founded NVE
in 1989 with the dream of using magnetoresistance to store information as tiny
bits of magnetism. Thats radically different from dynamic random-access
memory chips, which use a capacitor to hold information as electrical energy.

Magnetoresistive Thin Film Multilayers [NVEs first Government contract]
National Science Foundation
The objective of this program is to synthesize a thin film multilayer composite
material with a magnetoresistive effect up to ten times the magneto-resistance
ratio of permalloy material.
