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.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
