A new non-mechanical switching system has been developed by Wessex Advanced Switching Products (WASP) and has already been specified by a leading aircraft seat manufacturer. The capacitive switching system has been incorporated in the control system for a new and sophisticated range of seats being used by a major airline in their new Airbus A340 aircraft.
Niobium oxide and tantalum capacitors, manufactured by AVX, provide high capacitance performance in audio applications. Delivering a clear and rich flow to headphones and speakerphones, the parts realise the low frequency response demanded by high quality audio equipment.
AVX has introduced a low-profile TAJ lead-free “R” (0805) case size tantalum capacitor. Achieving high capacitance values, the device allows design engineers to reduce the size of their systems by downsizing components, or by reducing the amount of components needed in a circuit.
Semtech's RClamp0504N, a 5.0V protection device aimed at next-generation monitors, laptops, television set top boxes and networking equipment using high-speed I/O protocols, measures just 2.0 x 2.0 x 0.6 mm.
The latest family of multilayer chip inductors from Murata features exceptionally low DC resistance, making these miniature devices ideal for use in a wide range of high frequency applications where minimising power consumption is a critical factor.
Murata has made available a range of low cost chip inductors. The parts are all offered in the space saving 0603 case size and are supplied on 10K reels for high volume pick and place manufacturing environments.
Responding to the increased demand for the compact integration of RF and allied circuitry with high speed digital devices, Murata is offering a wide range of compact SAW resonators and filters for use at higher frequencies.
Murata has launched a number of new capacitor array products specifically aimed at those seeking to meet tough cost and form factor constraints, while maintaining product quality and further reducing PCB real estate.
