A new line of double ridge waveguide components are candidates for radar, wireless and satellite communication, and test and instrumentation. Fairview Microwave’s new double-ridge waveguide components span 28 models in straight sections, bends and twist configurations. These transmission line components cover wider frequency bands, deliver superior RF performance and offer lower cut-off frequencies compared to […]
The SiT5008 from SiTime goes to 60 MHz, draws 3.5 mA, and features a standby mode.
Bourns, Inc. introduced three new AEC-Q200 compliant high currents shielded power inductor series. Helping to meet the high current density, high temperature, and reliability requirements for power management and EMI filtering in a variety of consumer, industrial, and telecom electronics applications, Bourns Model SRP1580CA, SRP1510CA, and SRP1513CA inductors offer high current capacity, compact size, high operating frequency, and […]
The self-capacitance of Earth is approximately 710 μF, assuming the free-space dielectric to be a vacuum. The capacitance of Mars is 378 μF. At first glance, it may not be clear where these figures comes from or how a planet can have a capacitance. And if a planet has a capacitance, might it also have […]
by Jon Gabay for Mouser Electronics Virtually everyone today has wireless service or access to it. Since the introduction of early analog wireless services to digital 3G and 4G, most depend on their wireless service provider and device to keep them connected to our fast-paced, real-time world. Now, 5G is flaunting its promises for next-generation…
An amplifier design from 1936 gets a revival by reducing power consumption in cellular radios.
WINSYSTEMS today introduced its first Mini-ITX form factor carrier board to complement and support its COMeT10-3900 COM Express Type 10 mini modules. The ITX-M-CC452-T10 carrier platform is designed with industrial components for testing products in development and to deliver highly reliable performance in operating environments with temperatures of -40°C to +85C°. WINSYSTEMS’s newest COM Express market entry offers the assurance […]
There are many consumer, enterprise, and industrial devices today that have a USB Type-C port as the only input power option. While USB-C technology can offer high power and high data rate, it limits the range of the installation to a maximum of three meters from an AC outlet. As Power over Ethernet (PoE) becomes […]
CUI Devices’ Switches Group announced the addition of micro rotary actuator types to its DIP switches product line. Housed in compact 7.2 x 7.2 x 2.9 mm packages, the RDS-7229 series features 4, 10, or 16 positions, a 5.08 mm pitch, and surface mount or through-hole mounting styles. Thanks to their compact footprints and IP67 […]
Knowles Precision Devices recently announced the release of a new 100nF capacitor within its V-Series of single-layer capacitors. The 100nF is a high frequency, wire bondable single layer capacitor, making it ideally suited for GaN and GaAs amplifier applications where small size and microwave performance are critical. V-Series single-layer capacitors, including the new 100nF, are […]
