Company outline

磁気ジャイロの性能デモ

Magnedesign corporation (hereafter MDC) was established by Mr. Honkura to develop Magnetics technology and its applications which will contribute to open “Magnetics age in 21 century”

MDC has developed a high sensitive micro magnetic sensor in cooperation with Nagoya University and Toyota Technical Institute and found the new phenomena of GSR effect where GSR means GHz Spin Rotation. Nowadays MDC is challenging to develop super magnetic sensor called as GSR sensor applicable to 3 dimensional Electronics Compass used in smart phone, wearable computer, catheter etc., pT sensor detective the bio-magnetism, current sensor used in automotive and so on.

MDC built own technical center to develop and produce GSR sensor elements by way of trial on April in 2016.

MDC also makes the technical services on Magnetics technology about how to use magnetic materials and how to design magnetic circuit.

Technology

  • Introduction of GSR sensor principle

Introduction of GSR sensor principle

GSR sensor is based on the phenomena that any spins on the wire surface with circular aliment is forced to make spin rotation by GHz pulse producing big voltage proportional to external magnetic field in detective coil.  The voltage is proportional to frequency square, coil turn numbers and permeability of magnetic wire.

The developed GSR sensor with 10 times larger coil numbers is driven by GHz pulse changing from MHz pulse of conventional MI sensor and has 100 times better performance compared to conventional MI sensor.

ntroduction of GSR sensor Product

The performance of trial GSR sensor are controlled within the measuring range of 6G to 100G,and sensitivity of 3mV/G to 400 mV/G by means of the length changed from 0.1mm to 0.9mm based on the 3 dimensional photolithography technology producing 5 μm pitch coil.

  • Introduction of the 3 dimensional photolithography technology

Introduction of the 3 dimensional photolithography technology

Fig.1 shows the principle of GSR sensor produced by the 3 dimensional photolithography technology. The process characterized by drawing the fine wiring on 凹凸 plane which is formed by channels and wires on the Si substrate shown in Fig.2. Most interested technology are one to produce fine wiring on凹凸 plane in Fig. 3 and other one to make aliment of amorphous wire of 10 µm diameter into channels of 7µm depth in  Fig.4

  • announcement on cooperation

Many co- developments on commercial GSR sensor are carried out with magnetic Gyro- Compass used in wearable motion sensor, pT sensor detective to bio-magnetism, current sensor used in automotive, ultra-micro magnetic sensor used in catheter, high accuracy magnetometer called as nT meter or pT meter, and so on. MDC can offer GSR element and circuit board EVK needed for co-operation.
