Circuitry Has Felt Nanotechnology’s Impact Liam Critchley
Circuits and PCBs have been advancing rapidly for many decades, with each advancement being the product of the best available materials and processing environments of the time. In recent years, nanotechnology has been behind some of the significant advances in circuit board design.

EMC/EMI Shielding Explained Neil  Moore
EMC/EMI shielding is essential to every electronics product in this interconnected wireless world. We take you back to the basics of EMC/EMI shielding. Learn how it works as a concept, and what methods for shielding in your system are available. See some practical examples of current applications.

USB Power Delivery Makes Circuit Protection Mandatory Steven Keeping
The additional voltage and current introduced to the popular USB standard by USB-PD multiplies hazards and makes circuit protection essential. But designing protection against all threats can be complex and expensive. Integrated solutions from chip makers simplify the task.

Reinventing Overvoltage Protection Bourns
High reliability is paramount in our always on, hyper-connected world. Application downtime or failure runs the gamut from frustrating to incredibly expensive. That is why overvoltage protection remains a consistent requirement.

Keeping the Lights On: ESD and Thermal Protection for LED Lighting Systems TDK
There are several factors that can affect solid-state lighting including stress, packaging-related, and component-related issues. Discover the key threats that affect the reliability of LED lighting systems.

Pull Up Your Pins: How to Size Pull-up Resistors Mike Parks
Whether to prevent floating I/O pins on an MCU or to provide an interface between two circuits, pull-up resistors are a necessity. But what size resistor should you use?

Protect Embedded Interfaces with These Clamps and Crowbars Bourns
Protecting interface connections from overvoltage conditions and transient events is more important than ever with the proliferation of embedded electronics. Bourns clamp and crowbar protection is effective at protecting circuit interfaces in silicon and ceramic electronic components.

Advanced Ceramic Resistors Yield Higher Power System Density Bourns
Engineers today are asked to design applications with increasing power densities, which directly correspond to the demand for resistors. Leading manufacturers of these mighty passive components are answering current application requirements with new power resistor designs that can tolerate higher amounts of power in small and smaller form factors.

No Sulfur Corrosion Here: Sulfur Resistant Film Resistors Bourns
High sulfur environments play havoc with everything from IT industry server farms and data/storage centers and telecommunication base stations to industrial control equipment and rubber, paper, and oil manufacturing plants. In standard film resistors, their internal silver (Ag) or silver palladium (AgPd) terminal is only protected by the epoxy passivation layer making the device very susceptible to sulfur-based gases. Realizing how sulfur gases can affect the reliability of its film resistors, Bourns developed a specialized Palladium (Pd) layer that removes the chance for corrosion and the formation of silver sulfide.

K-SIM Improves Capacitor Datasheets and Simulates Multiple Parameters KEMET Electronics
Capacitor datasheets are notorious for omitting performance details, typically only including individual performance parameters in each graph or only including "typical" performance of combined parameters. KEMET’s capacitor parameter simulator, called K-SIM, solves this problem by combining multiple parameters into a single graph.
