Vishay Intertechnology introduces a new series of AEC-Q200 qualified high voltage thick film chip resistors. Offering working voltages to 3000 V, stability of 1.0%, and power ratings up to 1.0 W, the Vishay Techno CRHA series is available in five compact case sizes ranging from1206 to 2512.
Scanning Acoustic Microscopy (C-SAM) inspection has been used for the comprehensive inspection of the lead-frame in a horizontally stacked capacitor. This non-destructive inspection reveals minor anomalies at the interface with capacitor terminals which may impair the electrical response.
Learn how to reduce second harmonic distortion by following some guidelines for placing decoupling capacitors in your PCB layout in article from Steve Araras published by All About Circuits.
In this article, we’ll see that, without proper decoupling, we cannot extract the maximum linearity performance from a high-speed op-amp. In addition, we’ll discuss that simply rearranging a decoupling capacitor can affect the distortion performance of a high-speed amplification stage.
This article investigates the impedance of the three standard passive circuit components (R, L, and C) as well as the frequency response of a PCB trace. It is shown that a PCB trace can be modeled as a resonant RLC network just like the standard components and effectively constitutes the fourth circuit component whose frequency behavior directly affects the impedance of the resistors, inductors, and capacitors on a PCB.
