source: Evertiq news The Estonian Ultracapacitor manufacturer, Skeleton Technologies, is reportedly shutting down in Estonia to move its entire production to Dresden, Germany this summer.
source: AVX news The series delivers 39x increase in capacitance compared to 100V, 1812 MIL-PRF-123 & -55681 MLCCs — enabling revolutionary board space, weight, & component count reductions that directly translate into lower launch costs — & meets extremely stringent DLA requirements for high-reliability performance.
source: Electronics-sourcing article Tight supply of some components in the first half will help drive more customers to distributors. The bad news for electronics purchasers is that lead times for components which stretched last year may stay long through at least the first quarter of the year and perhaps through the first half. Supply is […]
source: GAM news Waltham, MA and Perth, Australia – DATE – Global Advanced Metals Pty Ltd (GAM), a leading producer of tantalum products, has announced the commissioning of Tekna TEKSPHERO plasma spheroidization equipment at its Boyertown, Pennsylvania, location. The equipment is part of a new process development facility for the manufacture of spherical tantalum and […]
source: electronics 360 news FastCap has created a unique ultracapacitor utilizing carbon nanotubes and a unique electrolyte that extends the temperature range beyond other capacitors, allowing for use in extreme environments from -55 to +100degC and -40 to +150degC operation ranges.

source: Dan Friedlander at Intelligent Aerospace article The procurement of electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) components phase is common for all applications (commercial, automotive, military, space, etc.). Nevertheless, every application type has its own characteristics.
source: Capacitor Faks blog Traditionally, designers of high reliability aerospace and military electronic systems depended on military established reliability (MIL-ER) capacitors because of their quantified reliability and stable construction. The cost of military qualified components is usually high because of the test cycles and qualification processes they go through before they are approved. Global economic […]
source: Capacitor Faks blog The performance of an electronic system can be significantly degraded by electromagnetic disturbances. This type of performance degradation is referred to as electromagnetic interference (EMI). EMI encompasses waveform distortions, unwanted voltage variations, and frequency variations. In electronic circuits, the main sources of electronic noise include regulators, power supplies, integrated circuits, oscillators, […]
source: Power electronics article Acoustic imaging of high-voltage ceramic chip capacitors performs a non-destructive cross section through the capacitor—or, since the method is non-destructive, as many cross sections as desired. All of the imaging modes have the same purpose: to prevent flawed capacitors from causing field failures.
