TDK: Attracting the future of innovation in the name of technology

Published time: 2018-04-09

At the just-concluded “2018 Munich Shanghai Electronics Fair”, TDK, the world’s leading manufacturer of electronic raw materials and components, has set its focus on “technology, attracting the future”, and has carefully set up automotive, photovoltaic, wearable, communications, and robotics. The subdivided exhibition areas showcased dozens of new products and technologies. At the same time, a demonstration area was set up to allow the audience to intuitively feel the application of TDK products, and fully demonstrated its powerful electronic components and solutions.

In the field of automotive electronics, once the EV, HEV and PHEV series products are launched, they have become the vane of the automotive electronics industry. In the field of information and communication technologies, TDK's products and solutions for smartphones, IoT, and wearable wireless electronic devices are exhibited to lead everyone in the future. For industrial and energy applications, TDK's focus on products and solutions for robots and solar energy will further enhance the convenience and efficiency of industrial manufacturing and energy harvesting.

Below we will focus on introducing several new products that TDK has exhibited in the exhibition area.

2018 Munich Shanghai Electronics Fair

CeraChargeTM - World's First Rechargeable Solid State SMD Battery

With the gradual improvement of the quality of life, people have put forward higher requirements for commonly used electronic products. They must be highly efficient and intelligent, and must be safe and reliable. From simple small mechanical devices to smart phones for the human hand, to complex devices for the industrial Internet of Things, to achieve absolutely safe and reliable performance, key components must be able to operate without external power. Continuous and stable work. As a result, energy storage media are required to be small in size, rechargeable, intrinsically safe, easy to assemble, low in cost, and long in service life.


In this market demand, TD's latest CeraCharge battery provides a solution to get out of the current predicament. Unlike most common technologies, CeraCharge is a stack-based battery that uses solid electrolytes instead of traditional electrolytes to achieve charge and discharge through the movement of lithium ions in solids. At the same time, CeraCharge is also the world's first SMT-compatible rechargeable battery element, with the advantages of easy placement of components and support for traditional reflow processes, thereby reducing the production cost of equipment using CeraCharge batteries.

With this technology, high energy density and minimum component volume are combined with the safety and high-capacity manufacturing advantages of ceramic multilayer components. In addition, the use of solid-state ceramic electrolytes also eliminates the risk of fire, explosion or liquid electrolyte leakage.For applications, multiple CeraCharge battery strings can be used in parallel, which makes them useful in a variety of applications, especially devices used for the Internet of Things. For example, real-time clocks, Bluetooth beacons, wearables, and energy harvesting systems.

World's first high-heat-resistant DC Link automotive film capacitor

The rapid development of the new energy automotive industry has brought new opportunities for the development of capacitors. Excellent frequency characteristics, high ripple current capability, etc. make film capacitors have greater advantages over other capacitors in new energy automotive applications. Challenges and opportunities coexist. Compared with industrial-grade products, automotive-grade film capacitors have higher requirements for product reliability and production process control.The hot new energy auto market has also attracted a strong TDK layout. In 2018, TDK took the lead in the application of capacitors for new energy vehicles and released two film capacitors complying with the AEC-Q200 standard, which are DC film capacitors and the world's first continuous use in a high temperature environment of 125°C. High heat-resistant DC Link automotive film capacitor series.

TMR sensor - a new generation of magnetic sensors for detecting angles

At the exhibition in Munich, TDK demonstrated several product demonstrations. Among them, in an experiment where a robotic arm catches a small ball, a TMR angle sensor is placed above and below the robot arm, which allows an operator to transfer the entire process of catching the ball to the machine, whether it is an arm or a palm. The robotic arm can achieve flexible swinging and grabbing, breaking through the notion that robotic arm action is slow and heavy.

This huge breakthrough, thanks to TDK's new generation of detection angle of the new generation of magnetic sensors - TMR sensor. According to reports, TMR angle sensor is the application of TMR (tunnel magnetoresistance) technology, with high output, high precision and high stability, excellent performance on the hard disk head, and small size. At the same time, the sensor has a 3D Hall technology with an additional vertical Hall plate, enabling the chip to measure the magnetic field parallel to its surface. These sensors can output signals proportionally based on angle and position information.

This sensor can be applied to wiper angle detection (direct control), EPS motor angle detection and other aspects, and has been applied to steering angle sensor, electronic throttle, accelerator pedal, brushless DC motor and other real cases
