Title: SPICE modelling of magnetoresistive sensors
Keywords: Magnetoresistive sensors, Curve fitting, SPICE model, MATLAB, Multisim.

Abstract: In this paper are presented non-linear characteristics of magnetoresistive sensors and methods for their curve fitting. For this purpose is used Curve Fitting Toolbox by MathWorks MATLAB, which provide powerful processing capabilities. The results of curve fitting are used as input data in SPICE model. To creating a SPICE model are necessary ABM (Analog Behavioral Model) sources. They use as input data mathematical expressions from preceding fitting of sensors’ characteristics. For this purpose is used National Instruments Multisim.
