Operational Amplifiers with EMI Immunity - Pushing High-Frequency Filters to their Limits

  Knowledge

IEEE802.11, Bluetooth, UMTS, GSM—radio communication protocols that couldn’t be more different, and yet they do have something in common, namely electromagnetic waves that can disrupt how integrated circuits process signals. EMI-immune circuits provide a remedy for high-frequency interference.

Less space required on the PCB: Rutronik introduces SMT high-current chokes from TDK‘s updated ERU16 series

  Knowledge

Compact inductors for high currents: the 17.3x16.5mm EPCOS ERU-SMT power inductors from TDK require twelve percent less space than the predecessor model. The low overall height of 7.55mm (1.0μH) or 11.1mm (30μH) is type-dependent. The flat design is possible due to the flat rectangular helical winding technology used, which also enables loss reduction. A third solder pad ensures particularly high...

A question of viewing angle: High-contrast CoG OLED display from Raystar Optronics at Rutronik

  Knowledge

Ideal for wearables: With the REX128128B, Raystar Optronics offers a 128x128-pixel CoG Circular OLED display as an interesting alternative to TFT or LCD, among others. The round 1.18“ POLED is particularly thin at 2.05 mm and impresses with excellent viewing angle properties and a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. With a visible area of 31 mm diagonally, low weight typical of OLEDs and low power consumption, it...
