10.13.20 -- Using Connectors With Integrated EEPROMS | Ultra-Thin Base Materials + PCB Miniaturization

Ultra-Thin Base Materials Take PCB Miniaturization To The Next Level

New approaches are needed to meet demand for smaller, thinner electronic devices. Rigid and flexible ultra-thin base materials for PCBs can fill this need, but it’s important to collaborate with a manufacturer that has advanced engineering services to ensure a compact, cost-effective, reliable design.

Using Connectors With Integrated EEPROMS

Connector systems with integrated microchips such as EEPROMs (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory) offer an easy pairing of devices and connectors, real-time connection status, mating cycle count, and electronic device identification.

The Price Of Reliability Considerations For Buyers

By making a small component change, one could extend an implantable medical device's reliability and lifespan by preventing battery-related complications. This paper explores the cost of device failures and discusses how proper testing and supplier considerations can help capacitor sourcing.

Introduction To The AR-5000 Series

This app note describes the GC (gain control), MLC (maximum level control), and ALC (automatic level control) features available on AR-5000 Series amplifiers. Controlling the gain, output power, and linearity performance enables the operator to maximize system performance.

Leading The Way In The Broadband Component And Testing Industry

Krytar’s product line meets the needs of a diverse, growing customer base and relies on partners who share a commitment to service. This case study discusses Krytar’s partner, Sunstone, and the advantages of working with them to deliver the highest quality customized products.

Product Catalog: Thin Film Division

This thin film catalog has been revised to be easier to navigate through by product groups. Now you can search by product groups such as: chip resistors, microwave and RF resistors, chip attenuators, chip capacitors, networks and arrays, packaged resistors, jumpers/kits and substrates.

Webinar: New Advancements For mmWave Antenna Design In XFdtd

XFdtd includes a range of features to assist engineers in designing antennas for millimeter wave applications. This webinar demonstrates XF’s singularity correction which accurately captures highly varying fields at the edges of good conductors and the process for importing components and document layers of a PCB. We also demonstrate XF’s multi-port feature for representing RF tuners and switches in the Circuit Element Optimizer (CEO) along with other minor updates.
