AVX Corp.'s PulseCap Series capacitors feature
the 'undertab' termination style, where traditional 'J' leads are replaced by
terminations that do not protrude outside of the outline of the case. The undertab style increases volumetric efficiency
and allows parts to be positioned closely together, delivering significant
space savings. The Pulsecap Series also includes devices with voltage ratings
up to 10V. The 2200/1500ÂµF / 6.3V PulseCap capacitors are available in two
different case sizes: four (7.3 x 6.3 x 2.0 mm) and six (14.5 x 7.5 x 2.0 mm).
of the 3300ÂµF/ 4V version completes the PulseCap family of 2 mm low profile,
large case size capacitors. The PulseCap
versions will employ a conductive polymer as a second electrode, which results
in a safer, reduced-ignition failure mode and even lower ESR. These new
capacitors will be extremely robust in preventing overloading and thermal
runaway. Samples of the new devices will be available during the first half of
Series capacitors are RoHS compliant and capable of withstanding a soldering
profile of 3x reflow at 260C. Operating temperature range is -55 to +125C.
Other applications include wireless data cards, solid state drivers, smart
metering and sensors.
An envelope is a common packaging item, usually made of thin flat material. It is designed to contain a flat object, such as a letter or card.
Traditional envelopes are made from sheets of paper cut to one of three shapes: a rhombus, a short-arm cross, or a kite. These shapes allow for the creation of the envelope structure by folding the sheet sides around a central rectangular area. In this manner, a rectangle-faced enclosure is formed with an arrangement of four flaps on the reverse side.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
