Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) sensors offer several advantages over other technologies for the development of general-purpose magnetometers. They are applicable for both AC and DC fields, are relatively sensitive, can be fabricated to measure over a large range of field strengths, have a high-speed response and are low cost. One significant disadvantage of… CONTINUE READING
