Position sensors based on the magneto resistance effect combine high precision with cost effectiveness for linear displacement measurements also in harsh environments where they have clear advantages versus optical encoder systems. Coming from applications with medium accuracy demands but high mechanical tolerances, the whole spectrum of displacement tasks down to nanoscale measurements can be solved with scale based magneto resistive sensor systems. Embedded in a TDFN package for standard, flat or perpendicular mounting, the linear magneto resistive sensors can now easily be applied to a wide range of applications with small design space using standard SMT assembly processes.
