Munich, Germany and Zhangjiagang, China – Nov 11th, 2014 – At Elecronica 2014, MultiDimension Technology (MDT) will showcase its lineup of advanced Tunneling Magnetoresistive sensors (TMR sensors), including the new Z-Axis TMR sensors as alternatives to Hall Effect sensors with the unique advantages of TMR sensors. MDT’s TMR sensors are designed for a variety of sensor applications including utility meters, magnetic field sensors, position and speed sensors, and financial anti-counterfeit applications. MDT’s exhibition booth at Electronica 2014 is B1/135.

TMR technology has been proven a high-performance, cost-effective and dependable technology in the disk-drive industry. MDT is a leading supplier of TMR sensors for the commercial magnetic sensor market. Thanks to a strong IP portfolio and advanced manufacturing facilities, MDT's TMR technology realizes the key benefits of present sensing technologies including Hall Effect, AMR (Anisotropic Magnetoresistance) and GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance), while exhibiting a unique set of extraordinary performance advantages, including ultra-low power, high sensitivity, low hysteresis, low noise, large dynamic range, and excellent thermal stability.

Features of MDT’s TMR Sensors:

·         TMR switch sensors: ultra-low power at 1microampere in high-speed operation, ideally suited for battery-powered flow meters;

·         TMR linear sensors: high sensitivity, low noise, large dynamic range, and low hysteresis, designed for magnetic field and current sensing applications;

·         TMR gear tooth sensors: small pitch detection, for use in position and speed sensors;

·         TMR angle sensors: 360-degree measurement, designed for angular position sensing and rotary encoders;

·         TMR magnetic pattern recognition sensors: high-sensitivity 1/6/18-channel magnetic banknote readers for financial anti-counterfeit applications.


Highlights of MDT’s Service Offerings:

·         TMR sensor wafers, bare dice, or in standard or custom semiconductor packages

·         TMR/GMR/AMR sensor design service

·         Foundry service for TMR/GMR/AMR thin-film deposition

·         Custom sensor module design and application solutions
