TDK Corporation presents a new series of EPCOS MKP-X2 capacitors for interference suppression. In contrast to conventional models, which are designed for a maximum operating temperature of 110 °C, the new capacitors offer a maximum permissible operating temperature of 125 °C.
TDK Corporation announces the development of its new ACT1210D Series common-mode choke for automotive CAN-FD, which will begin mass production in April 2021. Automotive LANs are roughly categorized into 4 systems such as body, safety, powertrain and multimedia/information and telecommunications.
TDK Corporation has developed the PLEA67 Series of inductors for use in true wireless stereo (TWS)* devices. Mass production will begin in March 2021.
This new series of inductors is intended for use in power circuits incorporated into wireless earphones used with smartphones, portable players and similar devices.
TDK Corporation presents a new series of current-compensated EPCOS double-ring core chokes for the suppression of common-mode interferences. These chokes are available in three sizes with current handling capacities between 10 A and 17 A, and with a rated voltage of 250 V AC (50/60 Hz).
High-performance IGBT modules switch currents in the kA range, whereby unwanted and in some cases harmful voltage overshoots can occur due to DC link leakage inductances. To counteract this, TDK offers extremely low-inductance special- snubber and DC link capacitors.
TDK Corporation presents the fully revised version 4.0 of the tried and tested Online AlCap Useful Life Calculation Tool for EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors. The tool covers all new high-voltage capacitors (>150 V DC) with screw, snap-in and solder pin connections.
TDK Corporation presents the new EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitor series B43548* with snap-in terminals. The capacitors feature an excellent maximum ripple current capability of 9.80 A (400 V, 100 Hz, 60 °C).
TDK Corporation presents a new, user-friendly tool to help users select the right PTC inrush current limiters (ICL) for a range of different power supply and converter topologies. The intuitive tool is available online and does not need to be downloaded. The selection process is divided into four stages.
In China, TDK Electronics has won for the first time HVAC system producer Hisense-Hitachi’s Excellent Supplier Award. Critical factors clinching the award were reliable delivery during the coronavirus pandemic and outstanding technical support for the customer-specific products.
TDK Corporation has developed the new MLJ-H1005 inductors for use in NFC* (near field communication). Mass production will begin in February 2021. The inductors' intended use is for the LC filters of NFC circuits. It is necessary for inductors to have narrow tolerances to minimize the loss caused by mismatched impedance with the antenna.
