TDK Corporation recently introduced the TCM0403M series of miniature thin film common mode filters for mobile devices. The 0403 case size (0.45 x 0.3 x 0.23mm) is 58 % smaller and 56 % lighter than previous products. With its high common-mode attenuation characteristic, these products reduce intruding noise and improve wireless signal reception sensitivity. The common mode attenuation at 2.4 GHz is 21 dB, and 28 dB at 5.0 GHz, with a maximum permissible current of 50 mA. Mass production started in August 2021.
Whether in smartphones, televisions or building technology, semiconductors play a central role in electronics and therefore in our everyday lives. In contrast to metals, it is possible to adjust their electrical conductivity by applying a voltage and hence to switch the current flow on and off.
