The electrification of automobiles is advancing toward autonomous driving, and accordingly noise countermeasures in automobiles become increasingly important. This time, we will introduce an automotive noise suppression filter MHF/MDF series that has unique features as compared to general chip beads.
The MHF series achieves a high impedance in the MF and HF bands ranging from 300 kHz to 30 MHz used in radios, etc., and has an excellent noise suppression effect. Furthermore, the MDF series is a product with excellent DC bias characteristics of impedance so that an excellent noise suppression effect can be obtained even when used in a power supply line.

TDK Flexields are thin, flexible magnetic sheets [shields] that have numerous applications within the electronics industry. For NFC shield applications, the magnetic parameters’ behavior over frequency greatly differs in importance than for other uses. This White Paper will explain key material characteristics quantified through figures of merit, which gives the designer a better understanding of how they impact read range performance and are supported by actual testing results. Additionally, a step-by-step check list is provided to ensure the designer considers all relevant system factors when doing their magnetic shield selection process.

TDK InvenSense’s barometric pressure sensors use an innovative capacitive MEMS architecture to deliver lower power consumption and lower noise than competing technologies. The SmartPressure products can measure height change below 5 cm, less than the height of a single stair step.
With its industry-leading measurement accuracy and ultra-low power operation for always-on applications, the SmartPressure product family is best suited for smart phones, tablets, wearables, drones, and many other devices to determine accurate location of E911 calls, track changes in elevation for activity monitoring, support indoor or 3D navigation, and other motion- or position-based services. Home appliances such as washing machines, vacuum cleaners, water and gas meters can use the pressure sensors to monitor air flow or water level.
The SmartPressure product family includes support for waterproofing to 10 ATM.
A Development Kit is available for each product family for easy evaluation.

Die TDK Corporation präsentiert die neue Serie PCM120T an geschirmten SMT-Power-Induktivitäten. Die PCM-Induktivitäten sind optimiert für Anwendungen, die einen hohen Sättigungsstrom und einen niedrigen Gleichstromwiderstand benötigen. Die Produktfamilie PCM120T umfasst 14 Induktivitätswerte zwischen 0,4 µH und 10 µH, wobei typabhängig Sättigungsströme von bis zu 80 A erreicht werden. Durch die Verwendung eines Kernes aus einer Eisenlegierung werden optimale Sättigungseigenschaften erzielt. Um die Verluste möglichst gering zu halten, kommen Wicklungen aus Flachdraht zum Einsatz. Dadurch ergeben sich geringe Gleichstromwiderstände (RDC) von 0,72 mΩ (0,4 µH) bis 9 mΩ (10 µH). Dank des geschlossenen Gehäuses aus Ferritmaterial ohne äußeren Luftspalt weisen die neuen Induktivitäten ein sehr gutes EMV-Verhalten auf. Durch die Leadframe-Konstruktion eignen sich die Bauelemente hervorragend für die automatische Lötstellenkontrolle (AOI) und es wird eine Koplanarität von <0,1 mm erreicht. Mit der guten Isolation des metallenen Kernes ist eine Beständigkeit gegen hohe Spannungspulse (gemäß ISO7636) gegeben.
