A novel method has been used for accurately measuring low voltage signals (~10-4 V) associated with inductance changes of bilayer thin-film sensors under bending stress. In this paper the architecture of the system is first presented, and then the design ideas and key technologies are followed. Initially, the frequency modulated signals were simulated with superimposed noise signals to test the demodulation performance of the written program. From the results, the expected output of the program was confirmed. Following this, the frequency modulation technique was used with actual sensor signals to measure the displacement of a bilayer thin film sensor. The results from the acquisition were compared with a previously developed amplitude modulation based setup, and it proved that the frequency modulation system provided a robust and accurate solution to evaluate magnetostrictive materials and their application in magnetic sensors
