A novel 2-Dimensional Suppressed Sidewall Injection Magnetotransistor (SSIMT) with high linearity has been fabricated on the standard CMOS technology and experimentally verified. The novel 2-Dimensional SSIMT overcomes the restriction of the standard CMOS technology. Experimental results of the fabricated 2-Dimensional SSIMT show that the variation of each collector output currents are extremely linear as a function of magnetic field from -200mT to 200mT at $I_B = 1 mA,\;V_{CE} = 5 V\;and\;V_{SE} = 5 V$. The relative sensitivity shows up to 13 %/T. The measured nonlinearity of the fabricated device is about 0.9%.
