The RoHS-compliant 153 CRV series of vertical SMD aluminum electrolytic capacitors are compatible with lead-free soldering processes and offer an operating life from 200,000 hrs at 40C. They are available in case sizes with measurements ranging from 4 × 4 × 5.3 mm to 10 × 10 × 10 mm. Standard capacitance values are 0.47 to 470F with voltage ratings from 6.3 to 50V. They are charge- and discharge-proof.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
