Welcome to Electronic Design's destination for components technology trends, products, industry news, new applications, articles and commentary from our contributing technical experts and the community.
Earlier this year, large electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics announced that longtime president and chief operating officer Mark Larson would step down as company president, passing the torch to fellow executive Dave Doherty on July 1. ...
With the trend toward smaller and smaller electronic devices, unintentional EMI/RFI interference has become more of an issue. Shielding of these interferences is critical and coatings can be successfully applied as protection on the materials used. In this paper, the different sources of interference are explored, as well as how coatings can play a critical role in protecting these sensitive components and boards....More
Learn how polymer (PTC) resettable fuses can protect offline Flyback converters. A thermal model of the resettable fuse, surrounding solder pads and copper are used to optimize the trip time protecting the converter during overloads. For short circuit protection, high temperature PTCs demonstrate a comparable resistance drift over temperature to MOSFETs....More
A significant challenge in replacing traditional meters with smart meters is finding the right communication and smart meter circuitry protection. Designers must consider multiple circuit protection elements to accommodate specific requirements throughout the meter system....More
Many applications are affected by sulfur pollution including IT, industrial and equipment in harsh environments. Sulfur negatively impacts film resistors where sulfide growth can cause resistors to go open circuit. Reliable and uncorrupted data transmission is extremely important....More
