Using the GMR field detector as an integrated current sensor subjects it not only to cross-coupled magnetic fields, but a wide variation of temperatures as well. Therefore, it is also shown that it is possible to use the temperature sensitivity of both the GMR field detector, as well as the required biasing magnets to serve as independent temperature sensors. These multiple temperature signals can be used to compliment an active thermal control strategy for enhancing reliability and performance of power electronic systems.www.omega.com/pptst/TFD_RTD.html  H.
