This book presents in-depth coverage of magnetic sensors in industrial applications. It is divided into three sections: devices and technology for magnetic sensing, industrial applications (automotive, navigation), and emerging applications. Topics include transmission speed sensor ICs, dynamic differential Hall ICs, chopped Hall switches, programmable linear output Hall sensors, low power Hall ICs, self-calibrating differential Hall ICs for wheel speed sensing, dynamic differential Hall ICs, uni- and bipolar Hall IC switches, chopped mono cell Hall ICs, and electromagnetic levitation.
Kirill Poletkin received the diploma (Hons.) of electromechanical engineer majoring in aviation devices and measuring computing complexes in 2001 from Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University and the Ph.D. degree from Moscow Aviation Institute (State University of Aerospace Technologies), Russia in 2007. Currently, he is a researcher in Institute of Microstructure Technology, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. In 2012, he was awarded the Humboldt Research Fellowship for experienced researchers. In 2013, he joined the Laboratory for Microactuators, Department of Microsystems Engineering, University of Freiburg, Germany to perform his own project deducted to studying a levitated micro-accelerometer. He was previously with Nanyang Technological University, Giesecke & Devrient GmbH (G&D), JSC Temp-Avia, Russian Federal Nuclear Center (VNIITF). His research interests include micro- and nano-scale devices and processes of the energy transfer within these scales. He is the author of 45 scientist works, including 18 journal articles and one patent.
