Continuous Monitors and ESD Control

Companies manufacturing products containing ESD sensitive items need to ask themselves “how important is the reliability of our products”? “Because wrist straps have a finite life, it is important to develop a test frequency that will guarantee integrity of the system. Typical test programs recommend that wrist straps that areRead More

Protecting LVDS Interfaces

Low-Voltage Differential Signaling or LVDS is a technology used in a variety of high-speed data transmission applications such as switches, set-top boxes and flat panel displays. In the simplest form, an LVDS interface, as defined by IEEE 1596.3 and ANSI/TIA/EIA-644, is a driver that transmits the signal over a traceRead More

ESD Protection for High Speed Communication Ports

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurs when a charge is exchanged between two objects of unequal charge potential. ESD most often occurs between people and metal objects. It is a result of an electron build-up behaving as a capacitor when dielectric isolation is available. Manmade materials, such as shoe soles, achieve dielectricRead More

Fans & their uses

Types of Fans

Fans and blowers are used to move air from one area to another, to provide or to remove cold, hot, dry or damp air. Applications are varied but the prime purpose is to move a mass of air.

Polymer Capacitors

Understanding Polymer & Hybrid Capacitors

Capacitors may seem simple enough, but specifying them has actually grown more complex in recent years. The reason why comes down to freedom of choice. The universe of capacitors has expanded greatly over the past few years, in large part because of capacitor designs that take advantage of advances inRead More
