TDK Unveils Advances in NTC Temperature Sensor Technology

TDK Corporation has developed advancements in technology of EPCOS NTC temperature sensors, which satisfy requirements of the RoHS directive and simultaneously feature high precision and durability.

The development of ever more exact temperature sensors is driven by increasing demands on temperature measurement in automotive and industrial electronics.  The goal is to boost energy efficiency of motor vehicles and also of equipment and installations.  To ensure that temperature sensors continue to operate with high reliability even under harsh conditions, the requirements for ruggedness and durability are more stringent than ever.

With the ability to manufacture high-performance ceramics with precisely defined compositions and highly automated manufacturing processes, TDK is able to develop NTC temperature sensors that feature:

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

•             Halogen- and lead-free composition

•             Measurement accuracy increased by a factor of ten

•             High resistance to ion migration at the terminals

Currently in the prototype stage, the new product range will include both NTC temperature sensors with lead wire spacing and leaded mini-sensors implemented with insulated terminal wires as well as bare wires.  The new sensors will be offered with rated resistances (R25) 2 kΩ to 100 kΩ.
