Chip resistors target high-voltage apps Product News 7/10/2006 Post a comment ROHM's KTR series thickfilm chip resistors deliver more than double the voltage resistance than conventional products thanks to the company's proprietary structure and trimming process, eliminating the need for multiple resistors in high-voltage circuits.
SLC capacitors exhibit high dielectric constant Product News 7/7/2006 Post a comment AVX expands its family of proprietary high k, intergranular barrier layer dielectric systems with the introduction of the Ultra Maxi series that claims a record high dielectric constant at 60,000 with X7R characteristics.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
