TDK is the only company that manufactures both the ferrite tile and the complementary foam absorber.

 

This is both advantageous and critical for both low and high frequency performance, high power dissipation, and broadband behavior. TDK uses very sophisticated manufacturing techniques to create both our ferrite and our foam absorber materials. These techniques allow us to control every parameter of the materials which impact performance and safety. By adhering to strict quality production checks throughout the creation process, we can bypass many time consuming and unnecessary steps (e.g. having to measure each piece of absorber product for size tolerance and RF parametric compliance). The result is a much more efficient production process with a higher yield rate for absorber products.

In addition, the facilities in which these products are manufactured are completely managed under an ISO 9001 quality system and an ISO 14001 environmental management system. With over 300,000 m2 of production capability, TDK manages the largest such facilities worldwide.

True experience is developed over time. TDK commenced the first commercial production of ferrite in December of 1935; by September of 1968 our electromagnetic wave absorbers were being introduced. In subsequent years TDK pushed the development of anechoic materials and their applications. Developments including the first wedge-shaped absorber (popular for microwave measurements), the first polystyrene absorber (popular for clean room applications), the first oblique incidence absorber (microwave absorber treatment in specular regions), the first hollow absorber (tensile strength and thermal performance advantages), and a host of other innovations. Today this experience and pioneering innovation is still very much alive in the activities and designs which TDK brings to the table. With over 700 chambers installed globally, we can draw on our experience to make your vision a reality.

Product Overview

TDK, the world's largest supplier of ferrite material, ferrite products and EMC components, is the undisputed leader in ferrite tile and cascade radio wave absorber technology. TDK developed the concept of ferrite tile as EMC radio wave absorbers, and has over 20 years experience in constructing anechoic chambers with ferrite tiles.

IB Material

This electromagnetic absorber utilizes the magnetic resonance loss characteristic of ferrite. This sintered ferrite has been baked at a temperature of over 1000°C and possesses physical properties equivalent to those of external porcelain titles.
