source: Stackpole news RALEIGH, NC Stackpole Electronics,Inc. announces the release of the HVAM series of high voltage axial leaded resistors. The HVAM deposition technology produces a non-inductive resistive element with high stability, low noise and high voltage ratings.
Source: Reiner W. Kuehl, Linked In Thick film SMD resistors are by far the mostly used components of this group worldwide. In contrast to thin film resistors they are made of precious metals (ruthenium, palladium, silver). In the last years high increases of precious metal price had fronted price pressure on the components by powerful […]

Source: Capacitor Faks blog Metallized film capacitors are some of the most common capacitors in use in today’s electronic circuits. Power film capacitors are widely used in DC-link circuits, pulsed lasers, X-ray flashes, and phase shifters while low power film capacitors are commonly used for decoupling and filtering applications. The performance characteristics of film capacitors […]
Source: Capacitor Faks blog The performance characteristics of capacitors are mainly determined by the materials used to construct them. One of the key characteristics to consider when selecting capacitors for medical applications is the magnetic properties of the materials used.
source: Sumida news Sumida has developed a SMD ferrite-type high current inductor CDB78D78C which can be used with a large current of 125A at maximum (inductance 100 nH). Since CDB78D78C is made with ferrite core, the properties and appearance are relatively stable (e.g. not likely to become rusty).

source: EDN article A bi-directional current source for a grounded load will always have some complication in its construction. The improved Howland Current Pump as shown in Figure 1 is the most frequent choice for this function. The Howland requires carefully matched resistors or resistor networks. Alternatively, you can use precision difference amplifiers although some […]
