Mitsubishi Electric offers a variety of semiconductor and electronic devices that are indispensable in electric appliances and contribute to the advancement of the information processing and telecommunications infrastructures. The company develops and manufactures power devices that provide higher operation stability and efficiency, next-generation optical devices that support today's rapidly evolving optical telecommunications networks, and high-frequency devices that are utilised in everything from mobile telephones to telecommunications satellites.
Power devices are indispensable for switching currents and maintaining motor control in electrical equipment and appliances. Mitsubishi Electric offers a large selection of power devices for a wide variety of applications ranging from high-current power plants and railcars to low-current air conditioners and refrigerators. In recent years, large expectations are being placed on the development of electrical equipment that contributes to protecting the global environment. Mitsubishi Electric, for its part, is actively helping to reduce power consumption through new power devices such as IGBT modules and intelligent power modules (IPMs) that have a built-in drive circuit and protection circuit.
The growing popularity of the Internet has led to its rapid expansion, and much faster and larger-capacity communications networks are required to keep up with user demand. The application of high-speed optical devices is essential to meet this need. Mitsubishi Electric is developing and producing optical devices that operate at higher speeds and offer better performance. Known for their quality and reliability, our optical devices are used in a broad range of applications including optical communications, instrumentation, local area networks, and information processing for both consumer and industrial applications. These innovations join a legacy of major Mitsubishi Electric developments including the semiconductor laser in 1963.
Advanced information and communication networks are constantly evolving to keep up with the popularity of mobile telephones, personal computers and the Internet. High-frequency devices are becoming essential for wireless communication at higher speeds and higher capacities in order to provide greater mobility for users. Mitsubishi Electric's broad product line provides optimum solutions for applications ranging from satellites and ground stations to mobile telephone terminals. This infrastructure is forming the backbone of a ubiquitous information network community.
Thin-film transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT-LCD) modules produced by Mitsubishi Electric are designed for a wide variety of industrial uses such as measuring instrument monitors, automatic teller machines (ATMs), point of sale terminals (POS), factory automation equipment (FA) and more. Designed for high reliability, optimal visibility and enhanced viewing angle, our leading-edge TFT-LCD modules ensure optimum performance and excellent colour quality in a broad range of indoor and outdoor operating environments. The technologies behind them bring us one step closer to achieving realistic images with true-to-life colours and clear visibility, even in sunlight.
