TDK Corporation announces that Tronics AXO315, a miniature high-performance 1-axis closed-loop digital MEMS accelerometer, is now available for purchase at Digi-Key, Mouser, and Farnell and its affiliates Newark and Element 14. The AXO315 sensor and its Arduino-based evaluation kit are now available globally from the three distributors’ websites. AXO315 is a ±14 g range, in-plane […]
Active 20-A 40-Vdc EMC filters provide MIL-STD voltage surge, spike protection
The TDK-Lambda FQB series of EMC filters have a rating of 40 Vdc at 20 A. Voltage surge and spike protection for dc-dc converters is accomplished through the use of active technology. The FQB has a rugged encapsulated quarter-brick package with a choice of flanged or non-flanged baseplates. These modules are suitable for use in […]
What’s new in sensing for robotic control?
At Sensors Expo 2018, Tatsuya Yuhara, from TDK Corporation demonstrates how to control a remote robotic arm with the company’s TAD2140 tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) sensor. Following the arm and hand motion, the TMR sensor allows Yuhura to easily pick and place an object remotely. This kind of operation is common in hazardous operations where the […]
Compact noise suppression filters for LED lighting
The MAF series of noise suppression filters now includes the new MAF2520ASS600C type that is designed especially for LED lighting systems. The new multilayer filter has compact dimensions of just 2.5×2.0×0.85 mm and features a suppression of spurious noise between 20 MHz and 100 MHz that is equivalent with that of larger wire-wound components. The […]
