Tower, which trades as TowerJazz, said the technology has advantages for sensing in IoT, consumer, automotive, industrial and medical sectors. Crocus has successfully licensed the TMR technology to a customer that is a Tier 1 automotive supplier.

Magnetic field strength sensors can be used to measure current, position, motion, direction, and other physical parameters. Crocus’ TMR technology is CMOS-based and the companies claim it has advantages over competing technologies in terms of sensitivity, performance, power consumption, size and full integration with CMOS to create monolithic single die ICs.

TowerJazz has been our development partner for many years and together we have achieved technology maturity leading to expanded business and successful licensing of Crocus IP,” said Michel Desbard, Crocus CEO, in a statement.
