NVE reports its financial results for Q1 2017

Spintronics developed NVE Corporation reported its financial results for Q1 2017. Revenues reached $6.85 million (up 12% from Q1 2016), due to 23% increase in product sales (offset by 49% decrease in contract R&D revenues). net income increased 16% to $3.03 million.

NVE recently introduced three new and improved products; a low-field angle sensor, a new spintronics mangetometer sensor (which is the world's smallest high-performance integrated circuit analog sensor) and the world's smallest high performance isolated network transceiver.

NVE awarded $224,000 by the NSF to develop food safety spintronics sensors

NVE Corporation has been awarded a one-year $224,000 contract by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop Spintronics-based biosensors to enhance food safety. NVE will cooperate on the research with the University of Minnesota and the University of Florida.

The contract is titled "Real Time Detection for Salmonella", and its goal is to develop sensors capable of faster detection of food-borne pathogens than current techniques while retaining equivalent sensitivity. The sensor could also be extensible to other biomarkers and could be envisioned as a critical point-of-care sensor in the medical industry.

NVE reports financial results

NVE Corporation announced their last financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2010. Total revenue in the quarter were $8.18 million (compared to $6.9 in the prior-year quarter). Net income was $3.6 million.

For fiscal 2010, total revenue increased 20% to $28.1 million from $23.4 million for the prior fiscal year. The increase was due to a 15% increase in product sales and a 50% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for fiscal 2010 increased 23% to $12.0 million.

NVE Introduces New TMR Angle Sensor

NVE Corporation today announced the introduction of the AAT001-10E TMR Angle Sensor, NVE’s first commercial sensor to use Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR), which produces an even “more giant” signal than Giant Magnetoresistance.

Also known as Spin-Dependent Tunneling (SDT), Magnetic Tunnel Junction (MTJ), or Tunneling Magnetic Junction (TMJ), Tunneling Magnetoresistance is a spintronic quantum effect that produces a dramatic resistance change in a normally insulating layer, depending on the magnetic field and thus the predominant electron spin in a free layer. The new device has four TMR elements configured as an angle sensor with full quadrature sine and cosine outputs.

The parts come in an ultraminiature 2.5 millimeter by 2.5 millimeter six-pin TDFN package. In typical operation, an external bar or split-pole magnet provides a saturating magnetic field of 30 to 200 Oersteds in the plane of the sensor.

TMR produces a very large signal with no amplification for exceptional precision, wide air-gap tolerance, and low power consumption due to high element resistance. The AAT001-10E is ideal for applications such as rotary encoders, automotive rotary sensors, motor shaft position sensors, and knob position sensors.

Datasheets and more information are available at www.GMRsensors.com or www.nve.com. Available now, AAT001-10E angle sensors are priced at $1.94 each in 1,000-piece quantities. Split-pole ferrite magnets for use with the sensors are available and priced at $1.15 each in 1,000-piece quantities. Customers can also use their own magnets.

NVE Corporation Reports Third Quarter Results, Working on Anti-Tamper MRAM

NVE Corporation announced today financial results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2008.  Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 23% to $5.88 million from $4.77 million in the prior-year quarter. The revenue increase was due to an 8% increase in product sales and a 150% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 45% to $2.47 million.

NVE reported a strong growth in contract R&D. In the conference call, Daniel Baker (company's CEO) said - "Most of the contracts that we're working on right now are related to anti-tamper MRAM".

The company also announced today that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $2.5 million of the company’s common stock from time to time in open market, block, or privately negotiated transactions.

NVE Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 14% to $5.73 million from $5.00 million in the prior-year quarter. The revenue increase was due to a 13% increase in product sales and a 24% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 40% to $2.30 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $1.64 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

For the first six months of fiscal 2009, total revenue increased 9% to $10.6 million from $9.71 million for the first six months of fiscal 2008. The revenue increase was primarily due to a 10% increase in product sales to $9.42 million for the first half of fiscal 2009 from $8.58 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the first half of fiscal 2009 was $4.20 million, or $0.88 per diluted share compared to $3.23 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2008.

"We are pleased with our strong quarterly results,'' said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D. "Increases in product sales and contract research and development revenue drove record earnings.''

NVE is a leader in the practical commercialization of spintronics, a nanotechnology that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store and transmit information. The company manufactures high-performance spintronic products including sensors and couplers that are used to acquire and transmit data. NVE has also licensed its spintronic magnetoresistive random access memory technology, commonly known as MRAM.

NVE Corporation Reports First Quarter Results

Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 3% to $4.86 million from $4.71 million in the prior-year quarter. The revenue increase was due to a 7% increase in product sales to $4.55 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 from $4.27 million in the prior-year quarter. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 20% to $1.90 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to $1.59 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

"Product sales drove strong profits,'' said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D. "Gross margin was 71% of revenue, operating margin 52%, pretax margin 58%, and net margin 39%.''
