AspenCore World Electronics Achievement Awards
December 18, 2018
CeraCharge and PowerHap products of the year
For the first time, AspenCore World Electronics Achievement Awards (WEAA) have gone to TDK Electronics in China (formerly EPCOS China). Both CeraCharge™ and PowerHap™ were selected as High Performance Passive Components of the Year in the 2018 competition. The WEAA program honors companies whose innovations and product developments have made special contributions to the global electronics industry.
CeraCharge is the world's first rechargeable solid-state SMD battery. This new technology offers a relatively high energy density and smallest volume combined with the safety and high volume manufacturing benefits of ceramic multilayer components. CeraCharge can be used in a wide range of possible applications - particularly in devices intended for the Internet of Things. These include, for example, real-time clocks, Bluetooth beacons, wearables or systems for energy harvesting.
PowerHap piezo actuators with haptic feedback deliver unrivalled performance in terms of acceleration, force and response time and thus offer an unprecedented quality of haptic feedback. Applications can be found, for example, in vehicles, smartphones and tablets, household appliances, ATMs and vending machines, game controllers, industrial equipment and medical devices.
AspenCore is a subsidiary of global volume distributor Arrow Electronics, and is the publisher of more than two dozen leading global print and online media, including electronics titles such as EDN, EE Times, ESM China, 21ic.com and Electronic Products. The winners in China were selected by a jury of editors from AspenCore's trade media in Asia, Europe and the US as well as by readers around the world.
