source: Bourns news RIVERSIDE, Calif., January 16, 2018 – Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced a new AEC-Q200-compliant, high power thick film resistor series.
source: nanotechweb news Could the inductor be redesigned in a fundamentally new way? Yes, according to new work by researchers in the US, Japan and China who have made the first high-performance inductors from intercalated graphene that work in the 10-50 GHz range thanks to the mechanism of kinetic inductance – rather than magnetic inductance […]
source: Power systems design news Supercapacitors are increasing in popularity amongst board-level components. In turn, there is now greater demand for supercapacitor reliability testing data, as sub-ppm component failure rates are critical for minimizing and eliminating PCB rework. Author: Eric DeRose, Field Applications Engineer; Bob Knopsnyder, Senior Development Engineer; and Bharat Rawal, Contractor/Retired Manager, BestCap […]
source: Capacitor Faks blog Today’s electronic devices are smaller in size and have more functionality compared to their predecessors. They are expected to get even smaller with the current advancements in manufacturing technologies. The trend towards miniaturization of components is mainly accelerated by better understanding of materials and improved processing techniques. Critical applications such as […]
