Ultracapacitors boost power and energy performance

Ultracapacitors boost power and energy performance
The new N60 3.0V 3400F ultracapacitors from Nesscap significantly raise the standard for power, energy and overall performance – all within the industry-standard 60mm cylindrical form factor. They are available at distributor Rutronik. Compared to Nesscap’s standard 2.7V 3000F cells, the N60 ultracapacitors deliver 42% greater power density and store 40% more energy.

Squared GDTs protect against overvoltage transients

Squared GDTs protect against overvoltage transients
Littelfuse has introduced what it claims to be the smallest (5.0×5.0×4.2mm) squared Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) with a 5kA surge capability and a ≤0.7pF off-state capacitance value available in the market today. The SH series GDT is designed to provide high levels of protection against fast-rising transients caused by lightning disturbances.

The world's first heat-driven transistor

The world's first heat-driven transistor
  Dan Zhao and Simone Fabiano at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Linköping University, have created a thermoelectric organic transistor. A temperature rise of a single degree is sufficient to cause a detectable current modulation in the transistor. The results have now been published in Nature Communications.
