Small 100nF ceramic capacitor for mobile applications
Murata has announced a small new multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC). As portable devices such as smartphones, hearing aids, wearable technology and other modules become increasingly multifunctional and more compact, so the demand for higher circuit densities is growing among electronic engineers.
Small linear thermistors reach new thermal limits
Texas Instruments (TI) has expanded its temperature sensing portfolio to include linear thermistors that deliver up to 50% higher accuracy than negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors. The higher accuracy of TI’s thermistors enables operation closer to the thermal limits of the other components and the overall system, helping engineers maximise performance while reducing bill-of-materials (BOM) and total solution cost.
High power resistors meet AEC-Q200 qualification
High power resistors with the AEC-Q200 automotive qualification are the first on the market according to Vishay Sfernice, the manufacturers.
Electrolytic capacitors perform for 8000 hours
The 381LL and 383LL series of long-life snap-in aluminum electrolytic capacitors from Cornell Dubilier are in stock at New Yorker Electronics.
Multilayer ceramic capacitors with 100V rated voltage
TAIYO YUDEN has announced today the commercialisation of 11 products, including the 1005-size multilayer ceramic capacitor HMR105 B7103KV (1.0x0.5x0.5mm, with a rated voltage of 100V and a capacitance of 0.01μF).
High temperature Multi Layer Varistors rated for 150°C operation
AVX has released a new series of high temperature, glass-encapsulated Multi Layer Varistors (MLVs) that are qualified to AEC-Q200, rated for operating temperatures up to 150°C, and designed for use in a wide variety of high energy, harsh environment automotive underhood, industrial, and oil and gas applications.
High-temperature thyristors improve thermal management
Littelfuse has announced an additional five series of high-temperature Alternistor TRIAC switching thyristors. The thyristors are designed for use as semiconductor switches in appliances and equipment powered by line AC voltages up to 250VRMS.
85A RMS rating enhances harmonic filter capacitors
The newly enhanced Cornell Dubilier PC Series of AC Harmonic Filter Capacitors is in stock at New Yorker Electronics. The capabilities of the series have been extended to include an 85 Ampere RMS rating and many other enhancements. Type PC capacitors are designed to meet the demands of filter applications rich in system total harmonic distortion (THD).
Hybrid capacitors offer lower self discharge characteristics
VINATech has launched a new family of high density 3.8V cost effective, Hybrid Super Capacitors, with ultra low Leakage Current to support its existing VLC range. EDLC Technology is being continually developed and enhanced by VINATech’s R&D Team and this has led to the new VPC series which has been developed utilising standardised EDLC production processes to reduce the costs of this advanced technology.
Space-saving resistor elminates need for heatsinks
The DCRF (Direct Water-Cooled Power Wirewound Resistor) for high-power applications from Vishay is now being stocked by New Yorker Electronics. Available in seven different lengths, the Vishay Super 12 featured product saves space by reducing the number of components required to dissipate heat.
