Previously, Murakami and Kitsunai applied the idea of equipping the hydraulic cylinder with a stroke sensor based on a magnetoresistor sensor to detect positions [6].
Smilie (8) used two magnetoresistors (devices whose electrical resistance depends on the local magnetic field), one at either end of the magnet in a jamjar magnetometer, to derive a voltage which depends on the magnet's position and can be displayed on a volt meter or recorded by a computer.
He then examines galvanomagnetic effects and the basic properties of Hall plates and magnetoresistors, Hall magnetic sensors, and Hall devices as means for characterizing semiconductors.
In our previous paper [16] we introduced the methods how to improve the accuracy of the yokeless current transducer (Figure 1) with a circular array of anisotropic magnetoresistors (AMR).
