California Micro Devices Corp. (www.calmicro.com) has introduced the CM1218 and CM1219, reportedly the industry's lowest capacitance Zener arrays. With simplified layout and smaller footprint, the CM1218 and CM1219 Zener diodes require only the negative rail, allowing designers to achieve ESD protection for high-speed serial data interfaces. They are offered in standard SOT23 and SC70 packages.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
