Enriching Lives with TDK Sensing Solutions

Enriching lives and enhance human interactions in a digital world through innovative sensing solution is TDK’s mission and commitment to sensor business. The company would like to build the premier MEMS sensing platform to enable innovation and create customer values by delivering unique sensor solutions into targeted markets. Our MEMS sensor product spectrum includes motion tracking devices such as accelerometer and gyroscopes, microphone, pressure sensor, ultrasonic time of flight sensors, and CO2 environmental sensors. The company has a network of design and manufacturing locations and sales offices. Of particularly importance is TDK-InvenSense regional presence; where ~300 engineers are located with all aspects of operation and engineering activities to deliver 1 Billion units of intelligent sensors per year. This presentation will start with a brief history of TDK, its business evolution, and sensor business. Operation principle and product features of TDK MEMS sensors; particularly those developed and manufactured in the region, are introduced. Among these, TDK-InvenSense’s proprietary CMOS-MEMS system-on-chip platform enables the sensors with the industry-leading performance, power, and size. Finally, the presentation is wrapped up with TDK’s mission and commitment to sensor business. Sensing solution is the foundations of smart systems. Sensor is everywhere including hearable, metaverse, entertainment, environmental, drones, automotives, mobiles, computing, wearable, and industry.
