TDK and Densei-Lambda Launch Unified Product Brand
Collaboration with co-marketing activities to enhance power-supply business
TOKYO, JAPAN, (March 27, 2006) - TDK Corporation and Densei-Lambda KK are pleased to announce the launch of a unified
brand called TDK-Lambda, for power-supply products. Beginning April 1, 2006, as the first stage of the brand integration,
the two companies will promote and market their products together.
The unified brand will cover AC-DC switching power supplies, DC-DC converters, DC-AC inverters, and power modules.
Among these product groups, some existing products will keep current brand names.

equipment. Densei-Lambda's strength lies in AC-DC switching power supplies and power modules, while TDK's advantage is in
DC-DC converters and DC-AC inverters.
With the unified brand, the two companies will leverage their strength in sales, marketing, manufacturing, and product
development. The two companies will enhance the power-supply business as a TDK Group and provide comprehensive and broad
solutions to the customers.
As the first initiative in their co-marketing activities, TDK and Densei-Lambda will co-exhibit their unified brand products
and new products at the TDK-Lambda Booth at TECHNO-FRONTIER 2006, which will be held at the Makuhari Messe International
