Development of Industry’s First Thin-Film Common Mode Filter featuring High Speed Differential Transmission Common Mode Noise Suppression and ESD Protection in a Single Component
TDK-EPC has successfully developed the world’s first thin-film common mode filter featuring both high-speed differential transmission common mode noise suppression and ESD (Electrostatic discharge) protection all in a single component. The new filter has a form factor of (1.25 x 1.00 x 0.60 mm3), using the proprietary thin-film circuit formation and materials technologies. Successful addition of ESD suppressor function to the already existing EMI (Electromagnetic interface)function in this newly developed filter has helped to eliminate any needs for additional varistor for ESD suppression, resulting in reduced number of components and mounting area, as well as further miniaturization of mobile devices.

This is a new series of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) with C0G temperature characteristics and a rated voltage of 50 V by TDK-EPC. The new MLCC are 60% smaller than existing products offering a same capacitance. The new products with three times the capacitance of existing TDK MLCCs, has the industry’s highest capacitance in the 50 V rated voltage range of C0G. Read more
Development of High Threshold Voltage Control Nitride Semiconductor Power Transistor on Silicon Substrate by NEC
NEC and NEC Electronics made an announcement on development of high threshold voltage control gallium Nitride power transistor on a silicon substrate. The new product has improved the control and suppression of electrical currents when electrical power is off which is a required feature for the safe operation of consumer electronics as well as IT devices.The new transistor comes with a new structure for the layer just beneath the gate electrode, resulting in improvement in controllability of threshold voltage that intercepts electrical current as well as enabling the achievement in low power loss, high speed switching and high temperature operations.

Well it goes without saying that where there is a problem there is an opportunity. Now days where ever we turn our head the term of “Economic Down turn” can not be avoided. Well one of the success stories for Japanese consumer electronics manufacturers has been in growing sales in white goods which have been largely driven by impressive demand from overseas market especially from emerging markets. One of the reasons that are contributing to this success despite the economic slowdown has been that price and functionality level have increased. Read more
With a booming appliance industry, increasing disposable incomes in high potential Asian region and introduction of multi functional equipments are the driving force behind adoption of rechargeable batteries in consumer electronics and other type of machinery but being a mature technology and with its increasing commoditization forcing vendors to distinguish their products from each other.
