(businesspress24) - SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/29/17 -- , a leading developer of an MLU™ based TMR magnetic sensor technology and embedded MRAM, today announced the release of its 2nd generation Digital Magnetic Latch, the CT83x series.

In response to a market gravitating towards high sensitivity, low power consumption, and small form factor, solid-state magnetic latches, Crocus is pleased to introduce the CT83x. The innovative TMR latch is a monolithic chip which offers Omnipolar, Unipolar, and Bipolar modes of operation with a variety of sensitivity levels and operational frequencies in addition to an option for digital and analog outputs in a single package.

We are excited to bring our customers the world''s lowest power-consumption magnetic latches with very high sensitivity utilizing our advanced monolithic MLU/TMR technology. The CT83x enables continued miniaturization of products combined with design flexibility and extreme low power-consumption to empower designers to develop systems with intelligent sensing in a wide variety of applications," states Zack Deiri, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Crocus Technologies. "With the CT83x, we leapfrog competitor''s magnetic latch offerings whether mechanical or Solid-State to deliver a product family which will enhance the performance of applications ranging from battery-operated mobile devices to IoT, consumer, industrial and automotive."

The monolithic, extremely low power consumption, and small form factor (1.4x1.4x0.45mm) CT83x is perfect for consumer and medical applications such as mobile phones, tablets, notebook, Bluetooth headsets, hearing aids, and liquid flow meters.

The high temperature operation of the CT83x, without significant degradation in performance, allows designers to develop applications which require accurate magnetic sensing levels over a wide-range temperature profile.
