LCD display pushbuttons swell switches range

LCD display pushbuttons swell switches range
An almost twofold increase in its offering of NKK switches has been announced by RS Components. The introduction of more than 460 additions to the range includes: toggles; pushbuttons; DIP and slide switches; and rotary, rocker, tactile and smart switches that integrate LCDs. Key introductions in this large range extension are LCD display pushbuttons that are ideal for the many broadcast industries, including a frameless OLED pushbutton switch.

Electrolytic capacitors enable reduced component count

Electrolytic capacitors enable reduced component count
A new series of 400 V and 450 V snap-in, four-terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitors has been announced by Vishay Intertechnology. They offer improved ripple current capability at an ambient temperature of 105°C in 15 large case sizes. Designed for power supplies and industrial and home appliance inverters, the Vishay BCcomponents 299 PHL-4TSI series reduces component counts and lowers costs while increasing mechanical stability and end-product lifetimes.

What's super about supercapacitors?

What's super about supercapacitors?
Supercapacitors are an alternative to using a battery or indeed the more common-or-garden variety of capacitor in many energy storage applications, perhaps as backup power or for high-surge demand applications. Avnet Abacus' Adam Chidley explains.
