Summary

In this chapter we begin with a discussion of magnetoresistive transducers. We then consider magnetoresistance, followed by sections on the magnetoresistive position transducer design, magnetoresistive element, linear arrays, electronics and performance specifications. The chapter concludes with typical performance specifications.
