Angle Sensors

TMR angle sensors acquire a large share of the EPS motor sensor market
and are expected to be used as rotation and position sensors

Interview with engineers "TMR angle sensors“

TDK’s TMR angle sensors are developed using its thin-film processing technology, which has been accumulated through the production of HDD heads. Highly sensitive, accurate, and stable, TMR angle sensors are the focus of the automotive market’s attention as the replacements of Hall Effect sensors and resolvers. In 2016, TDK received the Semi-Grand Prix in the Green Innovation category of the CEATEC AWARD 2016 as well as the Automotive Parts Award of the "CHO" MONODZUKURI (Ultra Craftsmanship) Award, which was co-hosted by the MONODZUKURI Nippon Conference and the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun Ltd. We interviewed the development leaders of the Asama Techno Factory (ATF) who solved a wide variety of technical issues and launched a new product about the technical process toward the birth of the TMR angle sensors.
