Gateway Electronic Components have been awarded a Silver Senten Manten award from TDK this Autumn in recognition of the company’s unique and differentiated position in the ferrite and power sectors and the contribution made to supply competence and efficiency in the TDK distributor channel.
Having issues with your power solution? Need better Power Quality and Energy Efficiency? There are many factors that can negatively impact on the power supply, and this can cause an increase in energy drawn from the network to compensate for these issues, which in turn increases energy costs and could reduce the life expectancy of some parts.
Ferrite cores and single air gaps are very common as this technique of a single gap is able to delay the core saturation and as a results increase the cores performance. However its not all good as these relatively large single gaps cause higher fringing flux which will lead to additional copper losses in the windings, especially when operating at high frequencies. Now single gaps aren’t bad by any means as the pros out way the cons, however can we improve this technique even further and reduce the cons?
There are lots of manufactures out in the market who say they can undercut the market leaders on price, and even though this may seem to be the most cost-effective option on the day, is that the actual cost that you will pay as a business?
From simple gadgets to complex devices for consumer and industrial IoT – they all require
compact, reliable and extremely safe power supplies. In order to meet all these demands, TDK
has developed CeraCharge™, the world’s first rechargeable solid-state SMD battery.
This new technology offers a high energy density and smallest volume combined with the safety
and high volume manufacturing benefits of ceramic multilayer components.
The TDK CeraCharge™ is the first solid-state rechargeable battery in compact SMD technology. Depending on requirements, the number of charge/discharge cycles this battery is able to perform ranges from several…
New ferrite cores enable additional copper losses to be reduced by up to 70 percent. The core design using distributed air gaps permits higher operating frequencies and smaller inductive components…
