At IMS 2019, TDK Corporation will be showcasing its varied portfolio of RF technologies, applicable for multiple industries including automotive, mobile, IoT, communications and industrial equipment. The company experts will be present at Booth #778 from June 4-6, 2019. They will be showcasing state-of-the-art LTCC antennas, filters, diplexers, triplexers, couplers, baluns and more. Some important highlights will include:
New High Performance RF Components for mmWave Applications
TDK will be introducing the first in a planned series of mmWave components for use in 5G applications. These components were realized due to TDK's new material development, innovative design and state-of-the-art manufacturing process. The line-up will include filters, antennas, baluns, couplers, power dividers and combiner products for n257, n258, n260, and n261. The first frequencies to be introduced are 28 GHz and 39 GHz with additional frequencies to follow. Applications include small cells, CPEs, repeaters, routers and IoT devices.
RF Components for 5G sub-6 GHz NR Applications
With the increase of new bands and applications expected for 5G technology, TDK has developed new RF components for 5G sub-6 GHz NR applications. The new n77, n78 and n79 bands are located in the 3.3 GHz to 5 GHz spectrum and require new component solutions. TDK has developed baluns, couplers, diplexers, triplexers, and filtering solutions for these new bands in LTCC and thin-film versions. These new components can be used for applications ranging from NB IoT FEMs to base stations.
Circulators/Isolators for Infrastructure Application
TDK has a wide portfolio of circulators and isolators for use in cellular bands. New circulators and isolators are currently being developed for use in the new 5G sub-6 GHz NR 3.5 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The circulators and isolators are available in a wide range of sizes to support variations in outputs, band frequencies, shape, terminal structure and power levels from 2.5 W to 150 W. Their main applications include base stations, repeaters, small cell and power amplifier systems.
New Auto-Grade RF Components
TDK will introduce the new ZDE Series, the AEC-Q200 compliant RF components, which provide high performance and reliability for safety critical applications that can operate extreme operating environments. The series supports LTE, WLAN, Bluetooth, V2X, DSRC and other technologies. Applications include multi-connected cars, ADAS, telematics, infotainment and smart keys.
RF Components for Cellular / WLAN / Bluetooth
TDK’s ever-growing portfolio of RF components includes filters, diplexers, triplexers, baluns, couplers and chip antennas. These components are used in a wide range of products for cellular, LTE, WLAN or Bluetooth applications. TDK has more than 20 years of experience with RF components in this space with each component has unique requirements and developed in close relations with industry-leading chipset vendors.
Application Specific Development Kits and E-books
TDK will also be showcasing development kits and e-books targeted for specific applications, including:
- WLAN / BT (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz)
- LTE / Cellular Development Kits
- RF Components for 5G sub-6GHz NR Applications
- Circulators / Isolators for Infrastructure Applications
