source: EPS news Component shortages are not just about increased demand. Any number of factors – production capacity, supply chain disruptions, obsolescence and technology migration – can contribute to product scarcity. For 2017 and 2018, supplier merger and acquisition (M&A) activity can be added to the causation list.
Source: Nanotechweb.org news Low dielectric constant (or low-k) materials are promising for faster, smaller and higher performance electronics devices. However, most low-k materials available today are very porous, which makes them mechanically weak and unstable at high temperature. A team of researchers in the US and Korea has now made a 3D nano-architectured dielectric material […]

source: appleinsider news By Mike Wuerthele Thursday, November 16, 2017, A report from a conflict mineral advocacy group puts Apple well ahead of other companies including Google, Microsoft, and Intel in efforts to develop supply chains of metals outside of conflict zones like the Congo.
source: Capacitor Faks blog A typical capacitor comprises two conductive plates and a non-conductive dielectric material. The dielectric material separates the two conductive metal electrode plates. Applying voltage to the electrode plates of a capacitor causes an electric field in the non-conductive dielectric material. This electric field stores energy. The dielectric constant, also commonly known […]
