TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) has extended its portfolio of EPCOS ERU SMT power inductors with the ERU16 choke series, comprised of ten different types. The inductance values of the new B82559B*A016 series, which replaces the former B82559A*A016 series, extend from 1.0 µH to 30 µH, and their saturation currents range from 10.3 A DC to 40.4 A DC at 25 °C.
TDK Corporation presents ModCap™ − a modular capacitor concept for DC link applications. The newly developed power capacitors are available for rated voltages of 1100 V to 2300 V and cover a 365 µF to 2525 µF capacitance range. The rated currents between 105 A and 180 A are type-conditioned with all types designed for 5 kA recurrent pulse currents. The maximum permitted hot spot temperature is 90 °C.
The number of smartphones and other mobile devices that are compatible with NFC (Near Field Communication) is increasing. Thanks to the adoption of a newly-developed low-loss ferrite material, TDK’s MLJ series multilayer ferrite coils now offer improved communication properties which are ideal for NFC-equipped devices, while featuring compact package sizes.
TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) presents the new EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitor series B43647* with snap-in terminals. Thanks to their outstandingly high CV product, they are ideal for highly compact solutions in power electronics. The capacitors are designed for a maximum operating temperature of 105 °C; at a rated voltage of 450 V DC and maximum ripple current, they reach a useful life of 2000 h. A capacitance range from 120 µF to 1000 µF is offered in case sizes ranging from 22 mm x 25 mm to 35 mm x 55 mm. Another special feature is the high ripple current capability up to 7.22 A (100 Hz, 60 °C).
TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) presents two new series of ThermoFuse® varistors, which are equipped with monitor outputs and integrated thermal protective components for overvoltage protection. The MT25 series (B72225M*) currently covers a voltage range from 150 VRMS to 385 VRMS, and its maximum surge current capability is 20 kA at a pulse form of 8/20 µs, according to IEC 61643-11. With dimensions of 25 x 28 x 14 mm, the completely encapsulated protective components feature a particularly compact design. Their monitor outputs are optionally available with or without electrical isolation.
PiezoListen is the world's first piezoelectric type speaker that supports a wide range. Thanks to a world leading thinness of 0.49 mm, it can fit almost anywhere. The product causes the object to which it is glued to vibrate and thereby become a speaker. Because the entire surface vibrates, the sound has wide directivity, and uniform sound can be enjoyed at any location. You can also listen to music from Piezo Listen ™ piezo speakers.
TDK Corporation presents two new series of EPCOS power capacitors for AC filtering in three-phase delta connection applications. The B32375* series is designed for the low to medium power range and covers a capacitance spectrum from 3 x 5 μF to 3 x 50 μF with rated voltages from 250 VRMS to 600 VRMS. The can diameters are 50 mm or 63.5 mm and the heights vary between 128 mm and 275 mm depending on capacity and voltage. These capacitors have faston terminals for easy installation.
TDK Corporation presents a new range of Open Mode chip varistors for electronic automotive assemblies that are directly connected to the battery. The new chip varistors offer reliable protection against transient surge voltages according to ISO 7637-2, and meet the failsafe requirements according to the VW standard VW 80808. Even when subject to excessive bending stress, short-circuits are avoided, which is particularly important for unswitched battery terminals (e.g. terminal 30).
TDK Corporation presents a new packing unit for CeraCharge™, the world’s first SMD technology solid-state rechargeable battery, in the compact size EIA 1812 (4.4 x 3.0 x 1.1 mm3). The packing unit (B73180A0101M199) includes 10 blister-packed CeraCharge batteries which come in a vacuum-sealed plastic bag. The components are manufactured in regular series production and are suitable for test purposes, prototype construction and the installation of pilot lines. The packing unit can be obtained quickly and easily from selected TDK service distributors.
TDK Corporation presents the new B58703M1103A* temperature sensor − specially developed for demanding E-mobility applications, which call for high long-term stability. The NTC sensor is designed for a temperature range of -40°C to +150°C, whereby a temporary load of up to 200°C is permitted. At 25°C the rated resistance is 10 kΩ with a B25/100 value of 3625 K and a tolerance of ±1 percent.
