When an oscillating force is applied at a resonant frequency of a dynamical system, the system will oscillate at a higher amplitude than when the same force is applied at other, non-resonant frequencies. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology allows the integration of magnetic field sensors with electronic components, which presents important advantages such as small size, light weight, minimum power consumption, low cost, better sensitivity and high resolution. Another type of Lorentz force based MEMS magnetic field sensor utilizes the shift of mechanical resonance due to the Lorentz force applying to certain mechanical structures.

Therefore, the cost of the sensor can be greatly reduced. The resolution can reach 1 nT with vacuum operation. In the first case, a phase shifting effect takes place. When there is an external magnetic field applied to the current carrying conductor, motion of the U-shape beam will induce strain in the two "active" piezo-resistors and thereby generate an output voltage across the Wheatstone bridge which is proportional to the magnetic field flux density.
