STMicroelectronics — TVS Diodes in Space-Saving Thin Package Feature 400W and 600W Peak Pulse Power Ratings


The SMA4F and SMA6F unidirectional Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) diodes introduced by STMicroelectronics are packaged in a thin SMA Flat package to provide space savings in circuits which require protection from high peak-power pulses. The SMAxF devices are footprint-compatible with their sister SMAJ and SMBJ families. At just 1mm high, the SMA4F and SMA6F series […]

Susumu — Precision Chip Resistors Handle High Power Loads Up to 1W


Susumu has introduced the HRG series of high-power chip resistors which offer precise and stable resistance over a wide temperature range and numerous temperature cycles. The HRG series features conventional short-side wrap-around terminals, in contrast to Susumu’s PRG series resistors, which have long-side terminals. The proprietary thin-film resistor construction and enlarged bottom terminals mean that […]

Vishay — Apples to Apples? Considerations When Substituting Polymer and Tantalum Capacitors for MLCCs


By Craig Hunter, Senior Director, Global Marketing Communications and Dave Richardson, Senior Manager of Field Applications, Vishay Intertechnology OEMs are today suffering from shortages of Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs), especially for devices in large case sizes and in high capacitance values. This has led them to evaluate the polymer tantalum capacitor as an alternative for […]

Yageo — Precision Resistor’s Low Current Noise and Temperature Drift Ensure Accurate Signal Transmission


Yageo’s RT series of thin-film resistors provides for accurate signal transmission because of high precision, high stability and low current noise. In the RT series thin-film resistors, advanced sputtering technology is used to form a fine nichrome resistive layer on the ceramic substrate. This produces attractive performance characteristics for applications that require high signal integrity, […]
