Wireless Technologies for IoT Networks

  Rutronik

The IoT (Internet of Things) already connects many things; a trend that seems to be increasing by the day. According to forecasts, between 200 million and 100 billion devices will be connected through the Internet of Things by 2020 alone. What is certain is that IPv6 has raised the number of supported IP addresses from roughly four billion to over 340 sextillion (a figure with 37 (!) zeros). The supporting...

High Contrast, Wide Viewing Angles

  Rutronik

You can find passive displays everywhere: in cars, kitchen and household appliances, telephones, as well as gas, water, and electric meters. This is thanks to their long service lives, energy-saving properties, and the fact that custom modules can be designed simply and quickly. The higher the value the application is intended to convey, the more that the attention has to be placed on the contrast.

Robust Connections

  Rutronik

Smart manufacturing ("Industry 4.0") is based, like the Internet of Things, on connectivity – and that means contacts. The connectors needed for the purpose must be of sufficient robustness for industrial use. So Industry 4.0 is not just a driver of growth, but also of technological progress, delivering a multitude of innovations. They are also benefiting other sectors.

Determining Capacitance Values Correctly

  Rutronik

Multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) are reaching the market with ever-greater capacitance values without increasing in size. Unpleasant side effect: It is becoming more and more difficult to measure the correct capacitance value. The values determined by users are frequently too low, which regularly results in significant extra expenditure. However, this situation could easily be avoided if certain...
