Inertial measurement units comprising an acceleration sensor and gyroscope have gained widespread acceptance in applications for capturing movements, determining spatial orientation and stabilizing images and objects. To reduce power consumption and to improve the quality of data capture, ST has integrated machine-learning technologies into its latest sensor.
Overvoltages and current spikes must be avoided in many areas of electronics; numerous laws and regulations in the various destination countries specify product safety in explicit terms. The corresponding overvoltage protection components can also lower the failure rate as well as maintenance and repair costs.
Power inverters with rapid-switching transistors need capacitors with low series inductance in the DC intermediate circuit. This applies to all circuits that regenerate AC voltage from DC voltage via a semiconductor switch. But not every capacitor is suitable for the job.
Where data storage solutions are required for industrial applications, the key selection criteria must include robustness, durability, fail-safety and long-term availability of the flash storage media. Noteworthy too: demanding security requirements can be addressed with special versions that feature WORM (Write-Once-Read-Multiple) or cryptography functionality.
