Capacitor arrays resist cracking
Now available from AVX Corporation are capacitor arrays featuring FLEXITERM soft termination. Like standard and multi layer ceramic capacitors, arrays will crack under excessive board flexure. However, FLEXITERM arrays can withstand over twice the PCB deflection of standard MLC devices without cracking.
16mm Stainless Steel Pushbutton Switches
The first of Bulgin's new range is a compact switch extending less than 21mm behind the panel. These single pole, momentary, push to make switches are rated at 2A, 48Vdc and are capable of 100,000 operations at full load and 1,000,000 mechanical operations. There are three button styles; flush, domed and prominent, and all switch variants have screw terminals. The MP0042 is manufactured in stainless steel with a polished finish. The MP0044 is man...
Ceramic resonators target contactless payment technology
To meet the fast growing and high potential demand in the converging consumer/communications/IT sector, Murata has announced a number of innovative extensions to its CSTCE range of Ceralock ceramic resonators. Designed to operate as clock oscillators or timing control circuits for microprocessor based equipment, ceramic oscillators are increasingly replacing quartz crystal devices due to their smaller size and built in load capacitance. Operati...
