A miniaturized circular vertical Hall device with 8 contacts was studied in terms of its sensitivity, biasing topologies and residual offset. The geometry accounts for about 30% lower sensitivity, but offers the possibility of biasing the whole device in all sampling phases, which proves better for residual offset.
The growing interest and activity in the field of sensor technologies requires a forum for rapid dissemination of important results: Sensor Letters is that forum. Sensor Letters offers scientists, engineers and medical experts timely, peer-reviewed research on sensor science and technology of the highest quality. Sensor Letters publish original rapid communications, full papers and timely state-of-the-art reviews encompassing the fundamental and applied research on sensor science and technology in all fields of science, engineering, and medicine. Highest priority will be given to short communications reporting important new scientific and technological findings.
