Lateral sensing with IMC Technology
As many traditional Hall Effect sensors are only sensitive to magnetic flux perpendicular to the IC, it can be necessary to develop complex (and therefore large and expensive) custom magnetic structures to achieve the desired measurement. Melexis’ latch & switch sensors use the innovative magnetic Triaxis® technology that allows the measurement of the lateral magnetic flux component.
