electronica 2016: Highlights of the Industry-leading Innovations
At Stand 105 in Hall B6 of the Messe Munich, Panasonic displayed almost 50 different components and systems for the automotive and industrial business - including GaN semiconductors, thermal management products, batteries for industrial use, passive components, sensors, electromechanical, as well as automotive solutions - that provide increased efficiency and reliability for a wide range of applications.
At the booth opening ceremony, Johannes Spatz, Executive Vice President of PAISEU, commented "Panasonic has a unique range of innovative technologies and product categories applicable for the major industrial markets in Europe. With the further expansion of our European engineering and competence team our customers can expect fast and flexible services from Panasonic."
Panasonic has just announced the start of the mass production of its X-GaN solution. It comprises the newest 600V enhancement mode GaN Transistors and their dedicated ultra-high-speed gate driver. By enabling compact and energy saving designs not achievable with the previous state of art, Panasonic X-GaN pushes the boundaries of power conversion engineering.
ZK series Hybrid Capacitors
Panasonic just released the ZK series expansion of hybrid capacitors line. ZK series optimize designs with regards to performance, cost and weight, low leakage current, long life, and low ESR values. It will be available to European customers in winter 2016.
Grid-EYE Infrared Array Sensors
Panasonic recently released its much improved and accurate second generation Grid-EYE infrared array sensors. It can not only detect moving and motionless people and objects but does that in comparison to its predecessor models with higher precision and higher accuracy.
Flexible Lithium-ion Batteries
With a thickness of only 0.55mm, the newly developed Flexible Lithium-ion Battery contributes to a longer life of devices as it retains charging and discharging characteristics even with repeated bending and twisting. This battery can meet various market needs for applications such as card devices and smart clothing.
Panasonic offers a wide product portfolio of more than 3,000 relay version in Europe. This covers the field of miniaturized relays, from ultra-miniature SMD semiconductors types to robust, compact industrial devices. In this year, Panasonic is promoting three new power relays for industry applications, building automation and IoT.
