A compact CMOS magnetic Hall sensor that includes both a Hall plate and readout circuit is proposed. In order to achieve a low-noise and low-power operation, the sensor employs a switched biasing amplifier with a chopper. The prototype has been implemented and fabricated in a high-voltage 0.18 μm CMOS process and occupies 0.624 mm 2. Owing to the switched biasing amplifier, the input-referred noise is reduced from 41 μT √Hz to 25 μT √Hz. The entire sensor consumes 4.5 mW with a 3.3 V supply voltage.
