The evolution of sensing technology and communication network contribute to the realization of Autonomous driving society and its growth. In association with full-scale expansion of the "5G service" next-generation wireless communication standard, great attention is being placed on wireless technology intended for "vehicle-to-vehicle and infrastructure-to-vehicle communication" (V2X) to communicate data between automobiles and their surroundings. While the TDK Group can offer a lineup of various electronic components for V2X, this article introduces a selection of IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and high-frequency products for Telematics Control Units (TCUs).

As electronic devices become more advanced, the power supply voltage of LSIs used in them is lowered, so their power consumption can be reduced and their speed increased. However, a decrease in the power supply voltage also causes the requirements regarding voltage fluctuations to become more severe, creating a need for high-performance DC-DC converters to fulfill these characteristic requirements, and power inductors are important components that greatly affect their performance. TDK has a widely varied lineup of power inductor products, and this article describes and explains effective methods for using power inductors, and key points for selecting them, according to the required characteristics of DC-DC converters.

TDK has an extensive lineup of inrush current limiting NTC thermistors available. This article describes various example applications of these products, used for ICL (inrush current limiting) purposes to easily and effectively suppress inrush current.
When power is first applied to electronic devices such as switching power supplies and inverters, an instantaneous current with an abnormally high peak will flow through them.<br>
This is known as “inrush current” and if not addressed, can lead to problems such as semiconductor element failure or reduced service life of smoothing capacitors. However, our inrush current limiting NTC thermistors can provide protection against this phenomenon to prevent such undesirable effects.
