Water-based electrolytic capacitors have had a bad image ever since the famous “capacitor plague”. And wrongly so, because they now meet key requirements in modern-day electronics – and there are new alternatives in the form of polymer hybrid capacitors.
Passive matrix OLEDs are high-contrast, thin, and energy-saving. They are also being increasingly used in industrial applications. Which advantages and disadvantages do they offer and when does a Design-In-Process make sense?
3D-NAND flash is about to make a breakthrough. The new memory technology has made enormous progress in recent years and offers an interesting alternative to the established 2D-NAND memories used in SSDs. Next generation memory architectures, such as QLC NAND, show the direction of development.
