Capacitors show low insertion loss up to 40GHz
Three new series of Exxelia Ultra-Broadband Dielectric Ceramic Capacitors have been introduced by New Yorker Electronics. These new broadband capacitors show low insertion loss up to 40GHz are perfect for optoelectronics, high-speed data transfers and more.
Current sense chip resistor extends value range
Stackpole has added a two milliohm resistance value to its popular CSS0603 Series. The ultra-precision 0603 metal foil is rated at 0.33W of power and the two milliohm resistance value has a TCR of ±150ppm with tolerance capability as low as one percent.
Automotive chip bead inductor operating up to 150°C
TAIYO YUDEN has announced that the mass-production of the AEC-Q200 (reliability qualification test standard for automotive passive components) qualified noise suppression component, power chip bead inductor FB Series Type T, FB TH1608 (1.6x0.8x0.8mm).
Down to the wire: A resistor’s role in laying cables
While we may associate data with being up in the clouds, it’s very much in the ocean too. Beneath our seas lie thousands of cables, tasked with carrying the world’s internet traffic. These cables form a vital communications network - and the world would seem like a much bigger place without them. What is less often considered is how these cables made it to the sea floor in the first place. Simone Bruckner, Managing Director at Cr...
RC networks absorb spark discharges
The complete series of Electrocube RC Networks ‘Arc-Suppressing’ Resistor-Capacitor (RC) Circuits is available now from 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.
Pulse film capacitors comply with AEC-Q200 Rev. D
A series of Automotive Grade AC and pulse metallised polypropylene film capacitors for hybrid and electric vehicles has been introduced by Vishay Intertechnology. With a maximum operating temperature of +125°C (observing voltage derating), Vishay BCcomponents MKP385e series devices ensure compliance with IEC 60384-17 and AEC-Q200 Revision D.
Graphene-based energy storage materials for supercapacitors
First Graphene has signed an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with the University of Manchester to develop graphene-hybrid materials for use in supercapacitors. The licencing agreement is for patented technology for the manufacture of metal oxide decorated graphene materials, using a proprietary electrochemical process.
Capacitor for fast switching wide bandgap semiconductor applications
KEMET has announced a complete capacitance and voltage offering for the KC-LINKTM ceramic surface mount capacitors in the EIA 3640 case size. The very high ripple current capabilities make KC-LINK capacitors well suited for use with fast-switching wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors.
Dual channel PPTC with small footprint protects from overcurrents
Littelfuse has announced a new series of 250V Telecom PPTCs designed to help make telecom and network equipment more reliable. The TSM250-130 series protects against power cross and induced power surges as defined in ITU, Telcordia GR1089 and IEC 62368-1.
Polymer-aluminium-electrolytic-capacitors with very low ESR
Panasonic Industry Europe has added a new long-life surface mount type series to its product line of SP-Cap conductive polymer-aluminium-electrolytic capacitors. Available with a rated voltage of 2.0VDC or 2.5VDC, GY capacitors benefit from huge capacitance values (680µF up to 820µF) and a very low ESR characteristics (3mΩ max.).
