What is a TMR Angle Sensor?

A TMR angle sensor is a type of magnetic sensor that detects the direction of the magnetic field of a magnet.

These products incorporate TDK’s accumulated magnetic technologies and thin-film technologies and boast high precision, high-reliability, and excellent temperature characteristics.
TMS sensors can operate stably under a wide range of temperatures. Because of this, they are increasingly used as automotive components, which require high precision and reliability. They also feature low power consumption and are used in a broad range of products in addition to automobiles including consumer products such as robots and smartphones.
