The plant at Johor Bahru in Malaysia is now using solar power generated on-site for production purposes. To do so, the factory installed a rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system that outputs about 640 megawatt-hours of electricity per year – roughly 8 percent of its annual requirement.
TDK Electronics has halved its CO2 emissions compared to 2015. One key factor is the fact that facilities in Asia are increasingly turning to electricity from renewable sources.
With electricity from 100 percent renewable energies and a rooftop photovoltaic system, the TDK Electronics site in Málaga has significantly reduced its CO2 emissions.
TDK Corporation has extended its range of TVS (transient voltage suppression) diodes characterized by their extremely low capacitance values for bidirectional overvoltage protection to include the ULC series (Ultra Low Clamping & Capacitance).
The TDK Electronics plant in Deutschlandsberg/Austria will in future use solar power generated on site to fuel its production. By September 2021, a photovoltaic system will be installed on the roof of the warehouse and dispatch building.
TDK Corporation presents its new B32320I* series of compact cylindrical DC-link capacitors for mounting on PCBs. They are designed for voltages of 450 V DC to 1300 V DC and cover a capacitance range of 6.5 µF to 260 µF. The current handling capacity IRMS is up to 27.6 A (10 kHz, 60 °C) and minimal ESR is 2.4 mΩ.
TDK Corporation presents the new, powerful and intuitive CLARA tool (Capacitor Life And Rating Application) for calculating and selecting EPCOS and TDK film capacitors for PCB mounting. The tool offers a versatile parametric search functionality.
TDK Corporation presents a new series of very compact current-compensated EPCOS power line ring core double chokes for very high frequencies. The B82791H2*N010 series is available with current ratings from 1.5 A to 4 A at a nominal ambient temperature of +70 °C without derating, and for a nominal voltage of 250 V AC (50/60 Hz).
TDK Corporation presents a new series of EPCOS power capacitors for DC link applications. The new capacitors are available for rated voltages of 700 V DC to 2000 V DC and cover a capacitance range of 20 µF to 270 µF. The current handling capacity can be up to 60 A at 65 °C with the ability to tolerate current peaks of up to 7.5 kA.
TDK Corporation has released tiny high-power TVS diodes for ESD protection, extending its portfolio of components for bidirectional overvoltage protection of I/O interfaces. The space requirement of the so-called chip scale package (CSP) is just 400 x 200 µm2 (CSP01005) or 600 x 300 µm2 (CSP0201), while the package height of just 100 µm is also very low.
The TDK plant in Hongqi, China, has moved to a much bigger site whose many improvements will make it more competitive.
TDK Corporation has extended its range of EPCOS ERU-SMT power inductors with the new ERU19, ERU24 and ERU27 (B82559*) series. Each product line is comprised of up to 10 types, covering inductance values from 1.0 µH to 30 µH. Overall, a range of saturation currents at 25 °C from 11.5 A DC to 101.5 A DC is covered.
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.
