  • Publication number: 20210063507
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to a Wheatstone bridge array that has four resistors. Each resistor includes a plurality of TMR structures. Two resistors have identical TMR structures. The remaining two resistors also have identical TMR structures, though the TMR structures are different from the other two resistors. Additionally, the two resistors that have identical TMR structures have a different resistance area as compared to the remaining two resistors that have identical TMR structures. Therefore, the working bias field for the Wheatstone bridge array is non-zero.

  • Patent number: 10937347
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a signal detection method and component, as well as a display device. The display device includes a timing controller and a source driver. The source driver receives a test code stream from the timing controller, which is obtained through encoding of an initial code stream by the timing controller, the initial code stream representing a test signal. The source driver decodes the test code stream. When the decoded code stream is different from the initial code stream, configuration information of the source driver is acquired. The configuration information is transmitted to the timing controller, and is adjusted according to reference information of the timing controller when it does not match with the reference information. The source driver receives adjusted configuration information transmitted by the timing controller, and then receives a subsequently transmitted signal according to the adjusted configuration information.

  • Publication number: 20210057638
    Abstract: A Wheatstone bridge array comprising a tunneling magnetoresistive (TMR) sensor and a method for manufacturing is disclosed. The bottom lead for the TMR sensor has a very small surface roughness due to not only chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) but also due to forming the bottom lead from multiple layers. The multiple layers include at least a bottom first metal layer and a top second metal layer disposed on the first metal layer. The second metal layer generally has a lower surface roughness than the first metal layer. Additionally, the second metal layer has a slower polishing rate. Therefore, not only does the second metal layer reduce the surface roughness simply be being present, but the slower polishing rate enables the top second metal film to be polished to a very fine surface roughness of less than or equal to ˜2 Angstroms.
