Smoothing out power modules - Film capacitors for DC intermediate circuits

  Knowledge

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.

Downsizing and replacing MLCCs

  Knowledge

With some passive components, very long delivery lead times are creating production bottlenecks. A creative way out of shortages of MLCCs is to use smaller sizes or to replace them with suitable tantalum or hybrid capacitors.

Memory cards for data protection - Protect data with Swissbit

  Knowledge

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.
