The demand for higher data rates at the edge has increased significantly. The adoption of cameras and video system has increased driven by the reduced footstep of these systems and their usage for safety, security and quality applications. Other systems like high-speed data logging devices, embedded web servers and monitoring systems require a timely data transmission.
In addition, the number of nodes in networks are constantly increasing therefore the desire to use an existing ecosystem is strong. Ethernet protocol and security layers as well as well-known installation, maintenance and management processes result in a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and a better Return on Investment (ROI) in the Network.
Industrial applications focus on a network speed of 10 Mbps as this should address the data rate and reach for most of the existing fieldbus applications. TDK offers an extensive lineup of various inductors for use in 10Base-T1L applications including common-mode chokes (CMCs), isolation inductors (Isolated Coupled Inductors) and differential mode inductors (DMIs).

With the spread of cloud computing and smartphones and the launch of 5G in 2020, the amount of data that moves on the internet is increasing as high-volume video and game data is added to existing documents, images, and sound data.
In addition, technologies are evolving, exemplified by AI, and a digital transformation (DX) is taking place as a result of the use of big data and the internet of things (IoT). To support these advances, however, large numbers of high-performance servers that can process large volumes of data will be needed. In conjunction with the increased performance of processors and various types of ICs, higher clock speeds of power supply ICs on server boards, high current power saving, miniaturization, noise countermeasures in data lines, and surge countermeasures have become urgent issues. Here, we introduce TDK products for addressing and solving these problems including the VLBU series of ferrite power inductors compatible with the high-efficiency needs of VR13 and VR14 applications, the FS series of DC-DC converters with embedded μPOL™, solutions using the ALT series of pulse transformers and ACM series of common mode filters and chokes, and chip varistors and ceramic transient voltage suppressors used for surge protection.
