TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) will display variety of products from its portfolio of RF technologies, applicable for multiple industries including automotive, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), communications and industrial equipment at booth #778 at the International Microwave Symposium exhibition June 4-6, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts. Products to be showcased include state-of-the-art LTCC antennas, filters, diplexers, triplexers, couplers, baluns and more.

With the growing demand for RF Solutions across industries, TDK’s extensive portfolio of RF technologies aims to complement the leading electronics company’s existing roster of electronic components in providing a comprehensive solution for design engineers.

TDK product highlights include:

New High Performance RF Components for mmWave Applications

TDK is 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 28GHz and 39GHz with additional frequencies to follow. Applications include small cells, CPEs, repeaters, routers and IoT devices.

RF Components for 5G sub-6GHz NR Applications

With the increase of new bands and applications expected for 5G technology, TDK has developed new RF components for 5G sub-6GHz NR applications. The new n77, n78 and n79 bands are located in the 3.3GHz to 5GHz spectrum and require new component solutions. TDK has developed baluns, couplers, diplexers, triplexers, and filtering solutions for these new bands in both 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-6GHz NR 3.5GHz and 5GHz bands.
