NTC sensor elements are the functional basis for all kinds of temperature measurements in all major applications. TDK develops and manufactures high accuracy temperature sensors with excellent media resistance and long-term stability for the automotive, industrial, home and heating appliances markets. TDK offers standard portfolio epoxy resin and glass-encapsulated elements for temperature ranges up to 300°C, complimented by NTC chip thermistors.
In conjunction with the increased use of GaN semiconductor, which can operate a high frequency, higher frequencies for switching power supplies have become feasible. Ferrite materials are used in transformer products, but core loss (iron loss) varies greatly depending on the driving frequency, and they are key components in transformer design. This article presents information on the features of PC200 material, which was developed by using GaN, and key points concerning its use.
TDK Corporation presents a new series of ceramic-based EPCOS ultrasonic sensor disks, comprising two standard types. The B59050Z0206A030 sensor disk has a diameter of 5.0 mm and thickness of 1.02 mm.
The CUR 423x current sensors feature non-intrusive, galvanically isolated contactless current measurement based on closed-loop TMR technology. This article clearly describes and explains information valuable for our customers related to the features of TDK's CUR 423x current sensors.
TDK Corporation has extended its range of hybrid polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a new SMD series. The components are now available in 25 V DC / 330 µF and 35 V DC / 270 µF versions, each with dimensions of 10 x 10.2 mm (d x l).
Measures to achieve the practical implementation of autonomous driving for automobiles are proceeding across the world. In order to reach that goal, the number of devices such as cameras and sensors installed in each automobile is increasing, with greater demands for their ability to quickly and accurately process information obtained from the areas around vehicle bodies. Automotive Ethernet communication is an effective method of fulfilling these requirements, and the products in TDK's AVRH series of chip varistors have been designated as components recommended for use with Marvell ICs to function as ESD protective devices, essential components which can reliably support Marvell's Ethernet communications technology.
TDK Corporation has extended its portfolio of EPCOS film capacitors for DC link applications with the robust new B3277*M series. The new types are suitable for extreme environmental conditions – a fact that has been proven by means of a THB test at 85 °C, 85 percent relative humidity with a rated voltage applied for 1000 hours.
TDK Corporation presents DeltaCap™ X Black Premium – a new series of EPCOS MKD capacitors for power factor correction (PFC). With rated voltages of between 440 V AC and 850 V AC, the capacitors with an internal delta connection are designed for power factor correction and filtering of harmonics at the low-voltage level.
TDK Corporation presents two evaluation kits that provide an initial impression of the varied possibilities of haptic feedback that can be realized with PowerHap™ piezo actuators.
The Hall-sensor family HAL 39xy features stray-field compensation capability built on the highly flexible architecture for multidimensional magnetic-field measurements.This article clearly describes and explains information valuable for our customers related to the features of TDK's HAL 39xy of Direct Angle Sensors.
