At Sensor Expo 2019, Marcia Ratton from TDK InvenSense demonstrates how the UltraPrint Sensor (TCFS-3000) precisely identifies a finger print. Integrated into a door lock, the image from the sensor is displayed on a screen to demonstrate the clarity and details of the image. The ultrasonic fingerprint imaging uses proprietary InvenSense, a TDK Group company, […]
TDK Corporation now offers the completely revised data book for EPCOS NTC thermistors. Product highlights include NTC elements for measuring temperatures of up to 650 °C. They are suitable for use in combustion engines, for example, where they help to improve the combustion control for minimal environmental impact. They can be used in applications such as […]
TDK Corporation presents leaded EPCOS metal oxide disk varistors, which have now been approved for an increased operating temperature of 105 °C (previously 85 °C). The reason for this is the recertification of the B722* series of varistors in accordance with UL 1449, 4th Edition, and IEC 61051. Raising the permissible operating temperature to 105 […]
TDK Corporation presents the world’s first multilayer chip beads and inductors with the innovative soft-termination technology that is already proven in TDK MLCCs. The external electrodes of the new KMZ1608 and KPZ1608 series of chip beads and the KLZ1608 and KLZ2012 series of inductors feature a conductive resin layer that offers effective protection against board […]

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of 300W models to the TDK-Lambda PH-A280 series of DC-DC power modules with high voltage DC input. Operating from a wide range DC input of 200 to 425VDC, which is widely used in HVDC (High Voltage DC Current) applications, the PH-A280 range now includes 50, 75, 100, 150 and 300W […]
Thermistors can reliably switch in thermal protection to keep power electronics cool. SONJA BROWN | EPCOS, A TDK GROUP CO. ALL SEMICONDUCTORS generate thermal losses, of course. Thermal losses in power semiconductors can range from a few watts to multiple kilowatts. In heatsinks, the conductive capability is typically measured in °K/W. The smaller the conductive […]
Qualcomm Incorporated and TDK Corporation today announced the completion of the previously announced joint venture under the name RF360 Holdings Singapore PTE. Ltd. (RF360 Holdings). The joint venture will enable Qualcomm’s RFFE Business Unit to deliver RF front-end (RFFE) modules and RF filters into fully integrated systems for mobile devices and fast-growing business segments, such […]
TDK Corporation has expanded its CGA series of automotive-grade MLCCs for high-temperature applications: New MLCCs with X8L temperature characteristics have been introduced and the capacitance range of its existing X8R types has been extended. With the new types, TDK’s lineup of X8L and X8R MLCCs features an unrivalled high capacitance range of up to 22 […]
