TDK to exhibit product range for medical applications at Medica 2019

The product range includes embedded motor controllers, magnetic, temperature, pressure and biomagnetic sensors, medical ASICs, power supplies, piezo components, and diagnostic chips for various medical applications.

TDK Corporation, a leading Japanese electronics company, will present its product range for the medical market this year for the first time at the Medica show which is to be held at Dusseldorf, Germany, at booth C42 in hall 9.

The product range includes embedded motor controllers, magnetic, temperature, pressure and biomagnetic sensors, medical ASICs, power supplies, piezo components, and diagnostic chips for various medical applications. Represented at the booth will be TDK, EPCOS, Micronas, ICsense, TDK-Lambda, and Tronics branded products.

Apart from these, the company will also showcase its specially designed products range for medical market. ICsense miniaturizes electronic systems for minimal device size and maximum battery life by making custom ICs. The ASICs (Application Specific ICs) are made for and sold to one single customer only. ICsense has Europe’s largest fab-independent ASIC design team active in medical technology. ASIC developments for medical implants and wearables are done according to ISO13485. ICsense supports ASIC designs for FDA Class I, II and III and active implantable medical devices (AIMD directive). At Medica, ICsense will showcase developments in medical sensor/MEMS, high-voltage (stimulation), power/battery, ultra-low-power devices and communication.

TDK-Lambda will also present a wide range of highly reliable power supply solutions such as the large switching power supply series CUS-M from 30 – 1500W. Depending on the model, the power supplies are suitable for use in both Class I or Class II installations and capable of operating in ambient temperatures of up to 85°C without the need for forced air cooling. The quiet power supplies can be used up to a working height of 5,000 meters and have a 3 or 5 year warranty.

A special innovation is the medically certified GXE600 series, which offers constant voltage / constant current (CVCC) operation and read-write programming through a robust RS-485 communication (Modbus RTU protocol). Both the output voltage and current can be adjusted over a very wide range using digital or analogue programming.

The company will also exhibit the XMS500 Series, configurable Class I and II medical 500W power supplies, which have low airflow requirement and meet curve B EMI. Furthermore, TDK-Lambda will show an interesting selection of DC-DC converters.

With its portfolio of Tronics sensors, TDK provides fully customisable MEMS platforms for the creation of unique biosensors and bioMEMS devices. The Tronics FlexusMEMS platform allows for the creation of fully flexible biosensors utilising biocompatible materials for use in the medical wearables market. The biofunctionalised silicon microneedle platform allows for painless sensing of biomarkers such as glucose, lactic acid, pH, and O2 levels in the body. TDK's customisable microfluidic platform can be used to create advanced diagnostic chips for blood sensing and protein analysis.
