The ATG is responsible for investigating new technologies and fosters cooperation with universities on fundamental issues in passive electronic components.
source: Capacitor Faks blog Class II dielectrics are made of ferroelectric materials. The most commonly used materials are alkaline earth titanates. Most Class II dielectrics are based on barium titanate (BaTiO3). These dielectrics exhibit less stability but higher volumetric efficiency than Class I types, and are very commonly used in electronic circuits for coupling, decoupling, […]
Source: ECN article Each New Year invites a host of achievements, inventions, and technological advancements. As we enter the early months of another year, industry experts share their opinions on what’s ahead for tech and engineering in 2018.
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 […]
source: Capacitor Faks blog Large voltage spikes are common in power circuits, especially during switching. Switching devices are exposed to large spikes during turn-off, and voltage suppression circuits are required to protect them. Circuits for protecting FETs, IGBTs and other switching devices from large voltage spikes produced during switching operations are commonly referred to as […]
