TDK Acquires Faraday Semi LLC To Bolster Power Solutions

News

TDK has acquired Faraday Semi LLC, a U.S.-based venture-backed company engaged in the design of advanced power semiconductor ICs. Faraday Semi is now a wholly owned subsidiary of TDK.

Faraday Semi, based in California, USA, is a fast-growing semiconductor company with innovations in systems solutions focused on power management through DC-DC power conversion. Faraday Semi solutions incorporate high-performance semiconductors and passive components in advanced packaging technologies such as semiconductor embedded in substrate (SESUB) to achieve unique system integration in a smaller size and lower profile by 3D assembly. This integration allows TDK to deliver higher efficiency and ease of use at a lower total system cost to what is currently available today.

This results in the world’s smallest class of high power density Point of Load solutions (product brand: μPOL™). The continued popularization of “big data" usage is driving the rapidly increasing global demand for high density and highly efficient data center and reliable data storage, and these miniature devices provide high-performance solutions that meet the challenging requirements of modern digital ICs such as ASICs, FPGAs and CPUs. Their emphasis on high efficiency and thermal management makes these devices suitable for distributed power management systems including ICT and other applications.

This will enable TDK to deliver high-efficiency, high-performance, super-compact solutions catering to the evolving trend of miniaturized power solutions and their accompanying semiconductors. TDK is acquiring Faraday Semi in anticipation that these technologies will help to improve systems efficiency and reduce system costs for customers around the world, in ICT as well as in the industrial devices and automotive markets.
