In 2011 TDK purchased EPCOS who were one of the largest ferrite manufacturers in the world. The EPCOS line of ferrite cores and accessories complements the TDK lines. EPCOS ferrites are now available through the TDK brand.
They offer a wide variety of Mn-Zn ferrite materials optimized for their application purposes, and include materials with high magnetic flux, low losses, and for broad temperature ranges.
The products are also available in various profiles, including materials with standard core shapes that are compliant with international standards or low-profile materials for planar transformers. In addition, the portfolio features Ni-Zn ferrite materials that are optimized for use in inductors, EMC products, antennas, and various other products.
These high-frequency materials offer high magnetic flux, high stress-resistance, and low temperature coefficients. The company excels in the high-precision manufacturing of advanced core geometries, including small and low-profile shapes with a height of 0.6 mm or lower, and offers a comprehensive program of matching accessories.
Gateway Electronic Components is TDKs leading ferrite distributor in Europe and as such holds one of the largest stocks of TDK/EPCOS ferrite cores and accessories.
Gateway has recently been acknowledged as one of TDKs leading distributors through the Gold Senten Manten European Distributor award which was awarded to Gateway in 2015. This builds upon the Silver award the company received in 2014 and shows how Gateway is committed to providing excellent service to all of its customers.
Devised by TDK to set performance standards for its distributor network across Europe, the awards are based on the annual Senten Manten Distributor Performance Evaluation Program. Senten Manten translates from Japanese into perfect result. Gateway was one of only three European distributors to secure the Gold standard, reflecting the companys consistent business and operational achievement against key performance criteria set by TDK for its distributor network.
