TDK at electronica 2018 – Passives, Power Supplies & Sensors

October 15, 2018 by Paul Shepard

TDK Corporation is putting the spotlight on innovation and the future at electronica 2018 from November 13 to 16 in Munich: Attracting Tomorrow! Under this motto and with three booths covering a total area of 850 square meters, TDK is showcasing its products and solutions for the segments Passive Components, Sensors and Power Supplies. At the TDK career booth visitors can learn about opportunities to join a leading global player in the electronics industry.

At TDK’s main stand, which is one of the largest of the entire electronica, the focus is on TDK and EPCOS components and systems and their applications, which can be experienced in the form of numerous live demonstrations. TDK’s exhibit is organized according to the three key markets, Automotive, Industrial & Energy, and Information & Communication.

Among others, visitors will be able to see how a 4D transponder coil can enable smart car keys to transfer important car data via near field communications (NFC). A further highlight is the versatile spectrum of piezo actuators for haptic feedback, whose performance is in terms of acceleration, force and response time. Also on display is TDK’s innovative Smart Crystal, which can significantly boost the light efficiency of car headlights or projectors, for example.

With a separate booth dedicated to sensors TDK is demonstrating how broadly the company has positioned itself in this strategically important growth market. The portfolio now includes innovative motion, position, angle, inertial, temperature and pressure sensors that are marketed under the brands TDK, InvenSense, Micronas, Chirp, Tronics and EPCOS.

Visitors will be able to experience the world’s first MEMS ultrasonic time-of-flight sensor and highly accurate 3D Hall-effect position sensors with the industry’s best stray field compensation. Also on display are embedded motor controllers for the control of small DC motors (brushed, brushless or stepper motors) which can be used in actuators. In addition, TDK is featuring the ASIC design services of its subsidiary ICsense, which offers these for automotive, medical, industrial and consumer applications.

TDK is presenting itself as a true power supply powerhouse for application areas ranging from industrial and laboratory to medical technology, communications and renewable energy. Visitors to the power supplies booth will be able to check out the latest additions to TDK-Lambda’s GENESYS+ family of dc power supply systems that feature DSP technologies for OEM, industrial and laboratory applications. Also on display are a highly flexible series of modular power supplies that are the quietest in their class and feature BF classification for medical equipment applications.
