Enables slim wearable designs with 0.48-mm profile
Several major technology shifts are occurring in the mature ceramic capacitor market. Some of these shifts involve changes in materials; others involve changes in packaging.
Vishay Intertechnology's professional thin-film MELF resistors provide high stability and reliability for precise current measurement in lighting, industrial, and automotive applications
Four key trends emerged from the massive assemblage that is industry’s biggest annual showcase.
Lithium-sulfur boasts big advantage over Li-ion batteries
The SGIHLP series, featuring a magnetically shielded construction, are offered in five case sizes and are optimized for DC/DC converters and high-current noise-suppression filters in satellites and defense systems.
Scientists are working on ways to improve the power densities and charging rates of all-round batteries.
Researchers have made a new hybrid conductive material -- part elastic polymer, part liquid metal -- that can be bent and stretched at will. Circuits made with this material can take most two-dimensional shapes and are also non-toxic.
The era of electronics began with the invention of the transistor in 1947 and silicon-based semiconductor technology. Seven decades later, we are surrounded by electronic devices and, much as we try to deny it, we rely on them in our everyday lives.
The performance of silicon-based devices has improved rapidly in the past few decades, mostly due to novel processing and patterning technologies, while nanotechnology has allowed for miniaturization and cost reduction.
For many years silicon remained the only option in electronics. But recent developments in materials-engineering and nanotechnology have introduced new pathways for electronics. While traditional silicon electronics will remain the main focus, alternative trends are emerging.
