Crocus Technology Introduces its 2nd Generation XtremeSense™ TMR 2D Angular Sensor

The CT310, a robust TMR 2D sensor, is targeted for applications that demand contactless, high accuracy angular position detection

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Crocus Technology Inc., a leading supplier of disruptive XtremeSense™ Tunnel Magneto-Resistance (TMR) sensors, today announces the CT310 sensor, a two-dimensional (2D) angular sensor capable of high-resolution measurements due to its low noise performance.  The CT310 is the next generation successor product to the CT300 that was released in 2018.

The CT310 is developed using Crocus’s patented XtremeSense™ TMR 2D technology which enables high performance with an ultra-low angular error and excellent stability over a wide magnetic, temperature and voltage ranges to address demanding market requirements. It consists of two full-bridge resistor networks that has an operating range of 25 mT to 90 mT. Over this range, it maintains an angular error of less than 0.25° with compensation over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +150°C. The CT310 could be used in end-of-shaft or side-of-shaft configurations with very high frequency response, and current consumption of less than 250 µA.

“The CT310, built with Crocus’s XtremeSense TMR 2D technology, is a robust angular position sensor with performance that far exceeds competitors’ devices in terms of accuracy, resolution, power consumption, and reliability over temperature and large magnetic field exposure,” says Zack Deiri, President and CEO of Crocus Technology. “The CT310’s high sensitivity (400mV/V) allows designers to utilize the device in their systems without the need for external components such as amplifiers which lowers overall solution cost. It is highly suitable for magnetic-encoder applications replacing outdated optical and mechanical technologies. The CT310 offers contactless angular sensing solutions for applications such as drones, motor control, robotics, white goods, and automotive. Crocus offers an easy to use evaluation board with digital and analog outputs to simplify and expedite customer’s evaluation of the product.”

CT310 is available in wafer/KGD (Known-Good-Die), an 8-lead TSSOP package, and in an ultra-low profile and small form factor 8-lead DFN, 2.00 x 2.00 x 0.45 mm package. Samples are available now and it will be in full production in September 2020.

Asean must work together to curb COVID-19, minimise socio-economic impact – Dr Noor Hisham

KUALA LUMPUR Asean members including Malaysia must work hand-in-hand to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and minimise the socio-economic impact to countries, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.


In his Facebook post today, he said as the widespread effect of the pandemic goes beyond borders, by extension, cooperation at the regional level must be built upon consultation with regional constituents.


“There are no shortcuts out of this pandemic and given the current rate of COVID-19 vaccine development – an empowered, engaged community that takes individual behaviour measures in the interest of each other is very critical to bring this pandemic under control.




“…in Asean level we need to have common standards and avoid costly duplications. Together we stand strong in this region for a better prepared tomorrow,” he said.


He also calls for Asean members to be on top of the situation; science on top of politics, science thrives over politics, as well as to continue to enhance strategic communication and public adhering to the standard operating procedure (SOP).


Earlier, Dr Noor Hisham said this during a webinar titled “How Can Asean Bounce Back: Fostering Public Health Safety & Economic Resilience for a Borderless Community in Asean”, organised by CIMB Asean Research Institute (Cari).



The discussion centred on Malaysia’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country’s cooperation with Asean and the international community in addressing COVID-19, as well as how to strike a balance between public health safety and the survival of the economy.

Proposed UNIFOR complex reflects Sarawak CM’s inclusive policy


KUCHING The soon-to-be constructed complex for the Unit For Other Religions (UNIFOR) at Ong Tiang Swee Road here is another reflection of the inclusive policy of Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.


Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas who is the minister in charge of UNIFOR, today said that the state government had not only provided the 1.2-hectare site but had given a grant of RM70 million to cover the construction cost.


“On behalf of all the non-Islamic religion (groups) in the state, I would like to express our profound appreciation to Abang Jo (Johari) for his generosity and his deep concern for us all,” he said in a statement.





According to Uggah, the earth breaking ceremony for the 10-storey complex is expected to be carried out in September this year.


“It will also feature a two-storey convention centre and green building and smart technologies including charging stations for electric vehicles,” he added.

Nikkiso Cryogenic Industries Group Expands in Russia and Wins Project for LNG Liquefaction Terminal

TEMECULA, Calif., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nikkiso Cryogenic Industries’ Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group (“Group”), a subsidiary of Nikkiso Co., Ltd (Japan), announces the establishment of their new office in Moscow, Russia, managed by Ayman Zeitoun, Vice President, Russia. The facility will allow us to support LNG and Petrochemical customers in the Russian market, as well as CIS countries.

The Group received a contract to supply all the cryogenic pumps in a major liquefaction terminal under construction. A major portion of these pumps will be designed and engineered at our Higashimurayama, Tokyo plant, and assembled and tested in Nikkiso’s new factory in Miyazaki City, Japan. The remainder of the pumps will be provided by ACD Cryo, Germany.

For the first time, Nikkiso has been able to provide all of the Cryogenic pumps for a project this size. That has been possible as a result of the newly built factory in Miyazaki, Japan, which is allowing the Group to further diversify our product and manufacturing facilities outside of the US, and to better meet the global needs of our customers. This also allows us to localize our cryogenic pumps in Russia and meet future local requirements.

“We are excited for this opportunity and the potential to grow our business in Russia. While this is the first order for our Miyazaki factory, with it, we look forward to being able to grow our presence and provide expanded solutions throughout the global market,” according to Peter Wagner, CEO of Cryogenic Industries and President of the Group.

The project is scheduled to begin in late 2022 and will run for several years. The Group has a long and productive relationship with the client.

Cryogenic Industries, Inc. (now a member of Nikkiso Co., Ltd.) member companies manufacture engineered cryogenic gas processing equipment and small-scale process plants for the liquefied natural gas (LNG), well services and industrial gas industries. Founded over 50 years ago, Cryogenic Industries is the parent company of ACD, Cosmodyne and Cryoquip and a commonly-controlled group of approximately 20 operating entities.
