NVE Sensors for Reed Switch Replacement in Medical Devices
The proven solution
to a sticky problem.

Advantages of NVE spintronic GMR sensors are:

  • No moving parts for inherent reliability--can't "stick"
  • True solid state, unlike MEMS reed switches which have moving parts
  • Proven in pacemakers, ICDs, and hearing aids
  • Smaller than ampoule or MEMS reed switches
  • More sensitive (1 mT) and more precise
  • No bounce
  • Rugged; immune to vibration
  • Negligible power consumption
