At the Sensors Expo & Conference running June 25-27 in San Jose, California, TDK Corporation will highlight its comprehensive portfolio of sensors and passive components from brands including EPCOS, InvenSense, Micronas, Chirp, Tronics and TDK itself.

The portfolio meets demand in industries including automotive, industrial equipment, consumer electronics and others, and addresses real-world applications such as AR and VR, robotics, IoT, automotive, consumer electronics and sound systems.

Sensor solutions to be presented at the expo include the following.

Gyroscopes, accelerometers and motion sensors

The closed-loop architecture of Tronics Gypro and Axo products complement one another for demanding applications, such as precision navigation and stabilization. A series of six-axis chips available from InvenSense offer motion tracking that combines both gyroscope and accelerometer functions.

Medical sensors

The customizable BioMEMS line from Tronics includes flexible polymer-based sensors; conductive and functionalized silicon microneedles; and microfluidic sensors for use in the medical wearable, point of care and diagnostic markets.


Both TDK and InvenSense offer microphones with low power, high fidelity, tight sensitivity matching and high acoustic overload point (AOP), designed for mobile, IoT and wearable solutions.

Tunnel-magnetoresistance sensors

The closed-loop tunnel-magnetoresistance (TMR) sensors technology of the Micronas CurSens family of current sensors allows for non-intrusive, galvanically isolated, contactless current measurements in automotive and industrial applications. TDK’s own TAD2141 is a TMR-based angle sensor capable of 360° contactless sensing within a wide temperature range, offering industrial and robotics applications along with a focus on future systems for automated driving.

Ultrasonic time-of-flight sensors

Chirp’s ultrasonic product portfolio includes the CH-101, the first commercially available sensor of its kind, with applications in consumer electronics, AR/VR, robotics, drones, IoT, automotive and industrial market segments.

In addition, Sreeni Rao, Ph.D., senior director of TDK gas and environmental sensing, will present at the Sensors Expo Pre-Symposium on real-world applications for MEMS and sensors. Rao will discuss gas sensing technology advances for at-home and consumer healthcare applications.
