The supply of MLCC and resistor chips is getting increasingly tight according to DigiTimes sources in Taiwan. Prices for MLCCs and chip resistors are expected to rise through the fourth quarter of 2020
Supercapacitors are unique because they can work in conjunction with or as an alternative to batteries in applications needing many rapid charge/discharge cycles and are popular in applications such as short-term energy storage, regenerative braking, and static RAM memory backup.
Designed for direct mounting on a heatsink, the Vishay Sfernice LPSA 300, LPSA 600, and LPSA 800 deliver high power dissipation and pulse handling capabilities to help designers reduce component counts and lower costs in automotive applications.
Electronic Products has announced the finalists for the 2019 Product of the Year Awards. The annual awards, now in its 44th year, recognizes outstanding products that represent any or all of the following qualities: a significant advancement in a technology or its application, an exceptionally innovative design, a substantial achievement in price/performance, improvements in design performance, and the potential for new product designs/opportunities.
POTENTIOMETERS Concepts and Definitions Potentiometers are electromechanical components and therefore exposed not only to the weaknesses of fixed resistors but also to all the failure possibilities of electromechanics. The reliability is comparatively poor. It will be even lower if we try to tool the shafts for our own special applications!!
