In the passive components sector, we have harnessed core technologies for the development of next-generation multilayer ceramic chip capacitors and inductors, EMC filters, and compound sheet-type flexible magnetic “Flexield” and RF absorbers for anechoic chambers. As a result, we introduced various EMC control products to the market and advanced the performance of anechoic chamber facilities. Activities related to RF modules for higher frequencies and other module products were also strengthened.
In the field of magnetic application products, we are actively engaged in commercializing rare earth-free magnets and next-generation ferrite magnets, and we are developing the next generation of high recording density heads as well as TMR angle sensors and other devices for automotive use.
The development of high-efficiency power supplies is another target in our quest to provide solutions for a more energy-conscious society. In order to avoid raising our selling price due to the soaring costs of rare earth raw materials such as dysprosium, we are directing considerable development resources towards magnets that require fewer or no rare earth components.
In the film application products sector, the development of next-generation lithium battery materials and film materials with new properties and functions is progressing.
