Corporation and its group companies EPCOS, InvenSense
and TDK-Micronas will present the industry’s single source of innovative
sensor solutions in Booth 30325, South Hall 3 of the Las Vegas
Convention Center at CES®
2018, January 9-12, Las Vegas, Nev.
As the demand for sensor technologies grows across industries, TDK
offers sensors, sensor solutions, and platforms for mobile, wearable,
AR/VR, automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), drone, and industrial
TDK’s expanding sensor portfolio covers sensing temperatures, pressures,
currents, and magnetic fields, as well as positions, angles, and
acceleration rates. The sensor offerings complement TDK’s existing
roster of electronic components, modules, and systems (capacitors,
inductors, ferrites, and RF products); power supplies; magnetic
application products, and flash memory application devices.
OEMs are invited to learn about market advancements, developments,
design concerns, and new sensor offerings across motion, sound,
environment and status.
Product highlights include:
InvenSense Pressure Sensors: The new InvenSense ICP-101XX
barometric pressure sensor family is based on MEMS capacitive technology
which provides ultra-low noise at the lowest power, enabling industry
leading relative accuracy, sensor throughput, and temperature stability.
It detects <5cm vertical movement and consumes only 1.3uA, enabling new
use cases such as improved drone hovering, activity and air-flow
monitoring, and always-on motion sensing. The ICP-101XX measures
pressure differences with an accuracy of +/-1Pa, enabling vertical
motion measurement differentials of less than a single stair step. Also
on display is the InvenSense ICM-20789,
the industry’s first 7-axis motion and pressure sensor (3-axis Accel,
3-axis gyro and pressure), for consumer electronic, drone and IoT
TDK TMR Angle Sensor: The TAD2141
sensor achieves the industry's highest accuracy of angle error of ±0.05°
with guaranteed accuracy of angle error of ±0.2 over its lifetime. This
contributes significantly to miniaturization and weight savings,
compared to the angle detection method of conventional resolvers. For
the first time in North America, the TAD2141 will be demonstrated in a
robotic arm, showing its effectiveness in industrial applications.
EPCOS Automotive 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 0.69 mm x 0.69 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 Microphones: InvenSense’s robust portfolio
of MEMS 3/6/7/9 axis motion sensors are accompanied by the highest
performing MEMS audio microphones. CES attendees can see a demonstration
of the new ICM-40688, InvenSense’s next-generation MEMS 6-axis
integrated inertial device that combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis
accelerometer. The ICM-40688 significantly outperforms other motion
sensors with extended motion range, superior noise performance and
temperature stability of accelerator and gyroscope.
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
automotive applications. TDK-Micronas has already delivered more than four
billion Hall sensors to the automotive and industrial markets.
The following demonstration may be viewed by invitation only:
CeraCharge™ Solid-State Batteries: The world’s first rechargeable
solid-state SMD battery, TDK’s CeraCharge™
has no liquid electrolyte, and is based on a multilayer ceramic
technology, similar to MLCCs, to excel in thermal management, with a
wide temperature range from -20 °C to +80 °C. The number of
charge/discharge cycles this battery is able to perform ranges from
several dozens to up to 1,000. With its compact EIA 1812 package (4.5 x
3.2 x 1.1 mm), it offers a capacity of 100 µAh at a rated voltage of 1.4
V. The compact size enables the battery to be surface mounted and
soldered onto circuitry for applications such as IoT and mobile
communication devices. Mass production is slated for April 2018.
