Investigation of Crossfield Effect in AMR Sensors
Abstract:We measured the effect of crossfield Hx on the output voltage of AMR sensor. This effect can seriously degrade the sensor performance, causing compass errors as high as 1 degree. We show that Hx can significantly affect the magnetization and cause hysteresis when it reaches hundreds of A/m. For lower field region we observe disagreement with the commonly accepted theoretical model.
