Process or control? Microprocessors, microcontrollers and their periphery

  Suppliers

Every new application design requires a microcontroller or microprocessor. And when making a decision between the two, there are a few factors to consider. An overview of the microprocessor and the microcontroller, and heterogeneous architectures. When deciding between a microprocessor (MPU) and a microcontroller (MCU), the type of application is often a critical factor. The final selection, on the other...

NLM0011 - First NFC configuration IC with integrated CLO - Solves LED current setting challenges, and increases LED driver market value

  Knowledge

To illuminate a light-emitting diode (LED) at a certain brightness level, an electrical circuit - the LED driver - must ensure sufficient current supply. At the same time having to avoid that the flowing current exceeds the maximum rating what would cause overheating and potentially destroy the LED. Considering that the voltage drop across an LED is approximately constant over a wide range of operating...

Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors | Capacitance loss due to DC bias in MLCCs

Created by Jürgen Geier, Field Application Engineer Capacitors, Rutronik |   Knowledge

Thanks to extreme further developments, MLCCs are being used in an increasing number of applications. However, one thing is often neglected in the designs: The DC bias behavior that influences the capacitance of class 2 ceramic capacitors. This can lead to the capacitance exceeding the tolerance range of the application for apparently inexplicable reasons and possibly cause technical problems. However,...
