Magnetic field sensor measuring a direction of a magnetic field in a plane and current sensor
A magnetic field sensor for measuring a direction of a magnetic field in a plane comprises two sensing structures (1A 1B) that can be operated as a rotating Hall element. The two Hall elements are rotated in discrete steps in opposite directions. Such a magnetic field sensor can be used as current sensor for measuring a primary current flowing through a conductor (15).
