I know they are out there, I just don't have examples at my fingertips.The data sheet shows a circuit to convert the signal to a traditional 5v square wave. My plan is to design a PCB to integrate the sensor, magnet, and the rest of the circuit to make one nice small package. I’ll probably make an initial batch of 5 boards so if you would like one to try out I’d be happy to share. I’ll get on a board design tonight and see about getting a few made up! I will report back!
Your project using GMR can also prove-out both smaller profiles and precision capability, while establishing GMR sensor integration as another strong option to older tech that has been waiting for us to catch-up. Do your thing!
