Surface-mount inductors target VRM circuits Product News 7/25/2006 Post a comment The Coiltronics high-current HC9 surface-mount inductors from Cooper Bussmann Electronics Technologies are designed for VRM circuits that are used in higher speed switch-mode applications that require lower inductance, low voltage and high current.
Kyocera acquires crystal supplier News & Analysis 7/19/2006 Post a comment Kyocera Kinseki
Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera Corp., has decided to acquire Hertz Technology Inc., a supplier of crystal devices including tuning fork crystals, in a stock transaction.
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.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
