Circuit protection devices are the safeguard electronic circuits that protect from overvoltage, overcurrent, overtemperature, and ESD. The article provides an overview of the most common circuit protection devices and the latest released products in this field.
Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has started mass production of two new multilayer ceramic capacitors for automotive applications—the NFM15HC105D0G3, which is the world’s smallest*1 0402 inch size(1.0×0.5mm) three-terminal low-ESL multilayer ceramic capacitor, and the NFM18HC106D0G3, which is the three-terminal low-ESL multilayer ceramic capacitor with the world’s highest capacitance of 10µF in 0603-inch size(1.6×0.8mm).
Integrated passive devices are seeing greater use within system-in-package technology and numerous applications, including the Internet of Things. The tiny devices are making their way into automotive electronics, consumer electronics, and health-care products, among other uses.
“The electronics industry seems to be slowly coming out of crisis mode,” an industry executive told the Institute for Supply Management. “Lead times and costs have leveled out in some commodities, and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) prices are actually coming down.”
Fukui Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Echizen City, Fukui Prefecture), a manufacturing subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., commenced clearing of the newly acquired land in June 2018 and proceeded with the construction of the new production building in September 2018. Construction has been finished, and a completion ceremony was held on Tuesday, February 4.
Over the past years, multi-layer ceramic capacitors have undergone significant improvements. The volumetric density has increased several folds. This unfortunately resulted in a big increase in DC and AC bias sensitivity for many parts.
Leading passive components manufacturers will discuss hot products, application notes and latest technology during the 2nd Passive Components Networking Symposium on 11th September 2019 in Bucharest, Romania
