TDK Site Report (1877 words)
The visit to TDK was bimodal; a very interesting and useful morning in which we discussed the TDK packaging and assembly issues, and an afternoon plant tour of the ferrite manufacturing facility in Narita, which was interesting but not particularly pertinent to the packaging and assembly issues.
TDK clearly appears to be competitive with the state of the art, or is setting the standards for state of the art, in the fields in which it competes.
TDK seems less interested in integration; indeed it seems to be the opposite of a company such as Intel, which makes individual chips that integrate many functions and grow larger as a result of integration; TDK wants to make things as individual components and as small and inexpensive as possible.
TDK: Information from Answers.com (3888 words)
TDK Corporation is best-known as one of the world's leading makers of recording media and systems, including high-quality audio and videotape, CD-R and CD-RW discs and drives, minidiscs, and rewritable DVD discs.
TDK or its subsidiaries began producing magnetic heads in the United States in 1972 and audiotape a year later, ferrite cores in Korea in 1973, ferrite magnets in Mexico in 1974, ferrite cores in Brazil in 1979, and videotape in the United States in 1980.
TDK was one of the leading makers of an advanced version of these heads that were known as giant magnetoresistive (GMR) heads, and much of the company's profits were derived from the sale of GMR heads.
