source: Nichicon article In the automotive and onboard automotive-related areas, the performance of equipment such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) is progressing together with the advancement of space-saving mounting parts to ensure comfortable vehicle interiors. To this end, even individual capacitors must conform to harsh environments, miniaturization and high-capacity requirements. The latest technological trends […]
source: Phys.org article A basic building block of modern technology, inductors are everywhere: cellphones, laptops, radios, televisions, cars. And surprisingly, they are essentially the same today as in 1831, when they were first created by English scientist Michael Faraday.
source: Phys.org news In recent years, researchers have searched for ways to make computers more neuromorphic, or brain-like, in order to perform increasingly complicated tasks with high efficiency. Now Hersam, a Walter P. Murphy Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering, and his team are bringing the world closer to […]
source: TT Electronics news Woking, UK, 20 February 2018 – TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, has announced the LRMAP5930 series of low resistance, metal alloy current sense power resistors. With values down to 200μΩ and a corresponding power rating on standard FR4 PCB of up to 10W, the maximum […]
source: EPS news Initially developed to replace discrete capacitors, resistors and inductors, integrated passive devices (IPDs) are having a kind of resurgence thanks to the development of ever-shrinking electronic devices that need to pack more electronics components into smaller spaces. These newer devices are far from simple capacitor and resistor arrays.

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 […]
