Solution Guide "Sensors solutions that enable advanced control of service robots" has been released
Service robots are widely used in various situations such as logistics / transport, security, cleaning, housework, hobbies / entertainment and care / assistance. Since service robots are used in a wide variety of situations, it is necessary to fulfil many requirements such as smooth communication with humans (HMI), ensuring safety and responding to changes in the real time. In service robots, the role of a sensor is very important. In this article, we will take a vacuum cleaner robots as an example.
Application Note "Child Presence Detection System" has been released
Leaving small children in a vehicle has become a problems resulting in fatalities. In North America, an average 39 children are left in cars and die each year. Reducing the number of fatalities in automobiles has become an issue for manufacturers as a part of their mission. For this reason, automakers are developing systems to detect the presence of children or pets in cars. In this chapter, we introduce TDK's related components and technical services regarding child presence detection systems.
Transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes are components for the protection of voltage sensitive components from electrostatic discharges (ESD). Available in chip scale packages of EIA 01005 and EIA 0201 TVS diodes by TDK are especially characterized by its ultra-slim and compact package, which makes them the ideal solution for circuit protection in applications with tight space requirements. They are designed, in particular, for consumer electronics applications demanding miniaturized package solutions like smartphones, tablets, wearables, true wireless headphones or hearing aids.
Product Overview "ACT1210D Common-mode Chokes for CAN FD" has been released
The ACT1210D type is optimized for CAN FD applications that are more susceptible to ringing by minimizing leakage inductance, stray capacitance, and mode conversion characteristics through unique structural design including the winding method.
Dynamic characteristic data was posted on the product site of the Choke Coils for PFC
PFC(power factor correction) is required to prevent harmonic current in switching power supplies. TDK's PFC choke coil is lined up from 75W to 900W as active method (boost converter). In addition to the static characteristic data so far, we have posted the dynamic characteristic data of power factor, efficiency, product temperature and operating waveform, so please refer to it when selecting a PFC choke coil.
