The AAL magnetic sensor series are sensitive in one direction in the plane of the IC, with a cosine-scaled falloff in sensitivity as the sensor is rotated away from the sensitive direction. Also, these devices provide the same output for magnetic fields in the positive or negative direction along the axis of sensitivity (omnipolar output). All GMR sensors are designed in a Wheatstone bridge configuration to provide temperature compensation.
The basic AAL series of GMR sensors are general purpose magnetometers for use in a wide variety of applications. They exhibit excellent linearity, a large output signal with applied magnetic fields, stable and linear temperature characteristics, and a purely ratiometric output.
Typical applications for the AAL series include:
- Motion, speed and position sensing
- Low-field sensing
- Motor commutator sensors
- Non-contact current sensing
