Magnetic sensors from distributors like Honeywell and ROHM and are becoming increasingly popular because of their accuracy, small size, and durability.
This article looks at the architectural improvements and newer processing techniques that are pushing silicon device thermal ratings up.
This article looks at the basis of operation of Hall Effect sensors and the use of linear and switched Hall Effect sensors in industrial automation applications.
Serial sensors and subsystems and some of the development and evaluation kits available to support them are discussed.
Cell phones and other wireless systems that contain multiple radios and multiple antennas often share some of the antennas to reduce system clutter.
Seldom does it take nearly 90 years to find a viable application for a technology breakthrough, but engineers took 86 years to develop an application for the Hall Effect Sensor.
As familiar as GPS is to the general public, it is still a technology waiting to be discovered by many design engineers.
21st-century ultra-small IC package innovation offers a beneficial alternative to mechanical devices.
