Magnetic reed sensor for instrumentation, industrial applications
Coto Technology's RedRock RR100 MEMS-based magnetic reed sensor is designed for automotive, instrumentation, industrial, and medical applications and also offers directional magnetic sensitivity and electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance.
Coto Technology’s RedRock RR100 MEMS-based magnetic reed sensor is designed for automotive, instrumentation, industrial, and medical applications. In particular, it has a variety of potential medical device applications including portable insulin pumps, capsule endoscopes, hearing aids, insulin pens, medical wearables, and other small, battery-powered medical electronic devices. The sensor, which measures only 1.11mm3, also offers directional magnetic sensitivity, electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance, and a wafer level package, all while consuming zero power.
The RR100 meets the strict power constraints of battery-operating portable devices and electronics, suiting the needs of emerging medical device applications, including ingestibles and implantables. The two pad wafer-level package saves on precious board real estate and mass when size and circuit complexity are critical. With closure sensitivity ranging from 10 to 25 milliTesla, operation from up to 20mm away is possible using a small NdFeB magnet.
