Magnetomyography utilizes magnetic sensors to record small magnetic fields produced by the electrical activity of muscles, which also gives rise to the electromyogram (EMG) signal typically recorded with surface electrodes. Detection and recording of these small fields requires sensitive magnetic sensors possibly equipped with a CMOS readout system. This paper presents a highly sensitive Hall sensor fabricated in a standard 0.18 μm CMOS technology for future low-field MMG applications. Compared with previous works, our experimental results show that the proposed Hall sensor achieves a higher current mode sensitivity of approximately 2400 V/A/mT. Further refinement is required to enable measurement of MMG signals from muscles.
