Keywords:MEMS? 3d? magnetic field sensors?

Multitest has added an application to its MEMS test and calibration product line. With the application, 3D earth magnetic field sensors can be used for innovative mobile applications and state-of-the-art navigation applications without the use of a GPS.

Broadening from automotive to mobile/consumer applications, these devices become more cost sensitive. The MT MEMS equipment continues Multitest's modular MEMS concept and responds to the trend of multiple degrees of freedom (DOF) test. Among others, it can be combined with a low-g accelerometer test.

In addition to being an alternative to using the earth's magnetic field, the application can be configured with external magnetic coils. This configuration provides high magnetic force at high accuracy.

The equipment for 3D earth magnetic field sensor tests is in high-volume production now.
