TDK / Qualcomm Robotics Collaboration

TDK and Qualcomm have partnered together to bring the latest innovation and technology solutions to the Robotics Market. As a major focal point for both organizations, this collaboration provides substantial investments into sensor and processor technology dedicated to the entire robotic market vertical.

As the exclusive sensor provider for Qualcomm Robotics, TDK has worked to create the “TDK Mezzanine” board supported on all RBx platforms through Qualcomm. This mezzanine platform allows for any customer who plans to utilize Qualcomm Robotics Processors to quickly and efficiently evaluate and develop upon all the necessary sensor and motor controller technology needed for any robotic product.

TDK leads the way in performance and power efficient sensor solutions that will bring value to any robotic product on the market!

Note: TDK Mezzanine board is supported only on Qualcomm RBx platforms

TDK Mezzanine Board

TDK Mezzanine Board

The TDK Mezzanine Board includes all the latest technologies offerings from TDK focused on the Robotics industry. The TDK Mezzanine combines the market leading performance of the ICM-42688-P IMU with the World’s Highest Performing Digital Microphone (T5818) and TDK’s Ultrasonic Time-of-Flight (ToF) range finder (CH101 and CH201). These sensors are accompanied by TDK’s Motor Driver (HVC4420F-B1), Barometric Pressure (ICP-10111), and TDK’s newest industrial grade IMU Module, the IIM-46230. The TDK Mezzanine is the perfect complement to the RB5 platform and provides all the sensor data needed to help fast track development of next generation robotics.
