TDK Showcases Extensive Sensors Offerings at Sensors Expo & Conference 2017

  • For the first time, TDK Corporation brings together TDK, EPCOS, TDK-Micronas and Tronics branded sensors to present a comprehensive portfolio of sensor solutions.
  • New TDK Group Company InvenSense will also demonstrate products at the TDK booth.
  • New Tronics MEMS accelerometer AXO215 will provide system manufacturers with excellent performances over a broad temperature range.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--TDK Corporation and its Group Companies EPCOS, TDK-Micronas, Tronics and InvenSense will present the industry’s single source of innovative sensor solutions in Booth 416 at the Sensors Expo & Conference 2017, June 28-29, in the McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, Calif.

As the demand for sensor technologies grows across industries, TDK offers an abundant range of sensor solutions as they relate to the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 and well-established automotive and industrial application fields. This expanding portfolio of offerings covers sensing temperatures, pressures, currents and magnetic fields.

Product highlights include:

EPCOS Temperature Sensors & Elements: The new EPCOS H650 sensor element is designed for measuring temperatures up to 650 °C and is based on a high-temperature ceramic sensor element that is connected to a metallized aluminum oxide rod and then glass-encapsulated. The NTC sensor element offers high-precision measurement with a temperature tolerance of about ±1 K at 200 °C.

EPCOS Pressure Sensors: High performance and long-term stable pressure sensing elements are designed for pressure ranges of 100 mbar up to 40 bar. The dies are available with sizes of 0.65 mm x 0.65 mm up to 2 mm x 2 mm. The automotive market benefits from dies with optional gold bond pads for high temperatures up to 170 °C and high corrosion resistance or high burst pressures.

InvenSense Motion and Sound Sensors: Now a wholly owned subsidiary of TDK, InvenSense is an industry leader in MEMS motion, audio, and location solutions for the consumer, industrial, automotive, and IoT market segments. InvenSense’s very robust portfolio of MEMS 3/6/7/9 axis motion sensors are accompanied by the highest performing MEMS audio microphones. InvenSense will also be co-located at Booth 446.

TDK-Micronas Hall-Effect Sensors: Hall sensors enable sensing in both dynamic and static magnetic fields, making them ideal for determining speed, positions and angles in the automotive and industrial applications. TDK-Micronas has already delivered more than four billion Hall sensors to the automotive and industrial markets.

Tronics High Performance MEMS Accelerometer: Resulting from Tronics’ recognized expertise in the field of high performance inertial sensors, the new AXO215 product combines all key benefits on a single chip in terms of size, weight and power. The closed-loop accelerometer is manufactured, packaged and calibrated in-house, and will start pre-production in the second half of 2017.

TDK TMR Angle Sensor: The new TAD2141 sensor guarantees an accuracy of angle error of ±0.2 and achieves the industry's highest sensing accuracy of angle error of ±0.05° in an ambient temperature. The TAD2141 sensors contribute greatly to miniaturization and weight savings, compared to the angle detection method of using a conventional resolver.

Exhibit highlights include:

Tronics: Thursday, June 29 at 2 p.m. at the Sensors Live Theater, François-Xavier Boillot, product development engineer at Tronics, will discuss how the new AXO215 Accelerometer combines multiple key benefits on a single chip in terms of size, weight and power in his presentation, “Tronics Strengthens Its Portfolio of High Performance Inertial Products with the Launch of Its AXO215 Accelerometer.”

InvenSense: Wednesday, June 28 at 11 a.m. at the Embedded Live Theater, Nicolas Sauvage, senior director of ecosystem marketing at InvenSense, will review how embedded machine learning with sensing fusion can enable the upcoming innovative use-cases from the highly fragmented IoT single-digit developers long-tail in his presentation, “Embedded Machine Learning Accelerating Innovation for the IoT Long-Tail.”
