What are Flying Capacitors?
As demand for high-efficiency and high-power-density inverters continues to grow, the so-called “flying” capacitor multilevel inverter is emerging as a strong choice for many power electronics systems.
The DC Bias Phenomenon Explained
When selecting an MLCC for your design, even when you know the rated capacitance for the MLCC, to ensure long-term reliability, you must be aware of and consider the impacts of DC bias on your device.
What Is X2Y And Why Would I Use It?
Using X2Y technology, Knowles Precision Devices manufactures high-performance MLCCs that we then use to create a variety of off-the-shelf and custom bypass and noise decoupling capacitors and EMI filters.
Reflecting On 2022 Innovations And Preparing For An Exciting 2023
Chris Dugan, President of Knowles Precision Devices, reflects an exciting year of growth in 2022 and the challenges ahead in 2023.
Making Electric Vehicle Wireless Charging Systems A Reality
As EV adoption for both consumer and commercial purposes rapidly grows, so does the need for improved charging infrastructure. Currently, wireless charging is the newest EV charging technology evolving
Back To Basics: Breaking Down The Fundamentals Of Filters
Regardless of the technology behind the filter, there are several key concepts that all filters share. Our new ebook provides a wealth of detailed fundamental filter information with the goal of helping customers simplify their future filtering decisions.
Cavity Filters: High Performance Under High Power
A cavity resonator is designed so that a space, or cavity, is enclosed by a metallic conducting surface, like a metal box. Inside the metal box, the electromagnetic waves reflect between the cavity walls.
Understanding Buck And Boost Converters And The Capacitors Behind Them
Buck and boost converters, which are the two most basic DC-to-DC converter topologies used in power supplies, are critical power supply building blocks that require careful component consideration.
High Q Capacitors For RF Power
High Q multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are designed and tested to overcome the challenges of developing high-frequency devices that require minimal power loss.
Are COTS Components Ready For Space?
NASA is adopting commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts as an option for a variety of space applications and aims to create a consistent set of requirements to minimize risk and impact of part selection/usage on the performance of NASA spaceflight technology.
