Thin film resistors have wide customisation capabilities

Thin film resistors have wide customisation capabilities
Manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, AVX, has released the new WBR Series thin film wire bond resistors. Diced to small 0202 (0.02x0.02”) chip outlines with tight dimensional tolerances (±0.003”), WBR Series top-contact, bottom-isolated resistors are ruggedly constructed, rated for up to 250mW DC power, and deliver stable and high-reliability performance in low profile packages.

Topological insulators become magnetic at room temperatures

Topological insulators become magnetic at room temperatures
In the world of electronics, where the quest is always for smaller and faster units with infinite battery life, topological insulators (TI) have tantalising potential. In a paper to be published in Science Advances, Jing Shi, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Riverside, and colleagues at MIT and Arizona State University report they have created a TI film just 25 atoms thick that adheres to an insulating magnetic film, creating a 'heterostructure'.

Battery shunt resistor offers improved accuracy

Battery shunt resistor offers improved accuracy
A new Power Metal Strip battery shunt resistor has been announced by Vishay Intertechnology, featuring two sense pins that offers a 36W power capacity in the 8518 case size. With low resistance values down to 50µΩ, the Vishay Dale WSBS8518...20 increases accuracy and lowers costs compared with Hall Effect current sensing solutions, while its sense pins assist in PCB mounting and provide consistent contact point location.

1,200V SiC Schottky diodes offer low switching losses

1,200V SiC Schottky diodes offer low switching losses
The first GEN2 Series of 1,200V Silicon Carbide (SiC) Schottky diodes has been introduced by Littelfuse, in conjunction with the start of the PCIM Europe 2017 Exhibition. These SiC diodes are the first in a series of products based on the technology platform created through a partnership with Monolith Semiconductor. Additional silicon carbide products based on the technology platform, including 1,200V SiC MOSFETs, are already in the pipeline and are scheduled for introduction in the near future.

Resistors focus on high-energy applications

Resistors focus on high-energy applications
RS Components has undertaken a rapid portfolio expansion of Ohmite brand high-quality resistors to build on the two companies global distribution agreement. The agreement also covers the ARCOL brand, which RS has been distributing for more than three decades prior to and since its acquisition by Ohmite Manufacturing in 2015.

Can you vandalise an anti-vandal switch?

Can you vandalise an anti-vandal switch?
Writing blogs, especially on technical subjects, is a strange way to make a living. What is even stranger is when blogs start to write themselves. When I started researching and preparing for this blog, my intention was to discuss a new range of vandal resistant switches. With my interest in applications, materials and performance, I was fascinated to understand exactly what 'vandal resistance' actually means in the world of switches.

Compact surface mount capacitors for low-profile power supplies

Compact surface mount capacitors for low-profile power supplies
A series of surface mount, Y1 safety certified ceramic capacitors for low-profile power supplies has been launched by Murata. The DK1 capacitors are useful for any AC/DC switching power supply where a low-profile is needed for use in compact AV equipment, LED illumination, or 1U rack mounted equipment. Safety certified capacitors are deployed at the input side of a power supply line in order to suppress noise that builds up primarily in commercial AC power lines.

RC filters minimise arcing and noise generation

RC filters minimise arcing and noise generation
The full series of Electrocube RC Networks Arc-Suppressing Resistor-Capacitor (RC) Circuits has been rolled out at New Yorker Electronics. Also known as resistors, resistor-capacitors or RC filters, Electrocube’s RC Networks are designed to prevent or substantially minimise the occurrence of arcing and noise generations in relay and switch contacts.
