Further Increase MLCC Reliability With CSAM Testing
As a result of tacking many layers of dielectric and electrodes on top one another, there are a number of issues that can be introduced during the manufacturing process that are not problematic when working with SLCs.
Expanding Filter Technology Offerings For Low-Frequency Applications
Knowles' acquisition of IMC has allowed an expansion of offerings to serve applications operating in the lower portion of the frequency range from the VHF to the L-band.
Wrapping Up 2021 With Knowles Precision Devices’ President Chris Dugan
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Knowles Precision Devices has stayed focused on our primary goal of helping our customers address their most challenging application needs by providing high-performance components and innovative solutions. While 2021 did offer some unique challenges, overall, it was an exceptional year for our business.
New Low Loss, Ultra Stable High-Capacitance MLCCs For Power Electronics
Knowles' newest line of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) built with Hiteca™ delivers high capacitance stability over high temperature and voltage as well as lower parasitic losses under common operating conditions.
Addressing Electronic Circuit Development Challenges For Medical Devices
This article explores the industry-wide challenges associated with electronic component selection for medical devices as well as some of the application-specific decisions medical device designers need to make to ensure these devices function consistently and reliably for the long term.
Simplifying The Transition From 5G Operations At Sub-6GHz To mmWave
There are three key differences between sub-6 GHz and mmWave operations. There are also a variety of different RF design challenges at mmWave largely because as frequency increases, wavelength decreases.
Simplify Capacitor Dielectric Selection By Understanding Dielectric Coding Methods
When designing a ceramic capacitor, the type of dielectric used will influence the characteristics of the capacitor and define its electrical behavior. Explore classification systems used by IEC and ECIA standards to easily identify the temperature coefficients and operating temperatures for both dielectric classes I and II.
A Custom Approach To Large Capacitor Assembly
Achieving high capacitance means going big. But how do you do that while still maximizing board space? At Knowles Precision Devices, we’ve developed a new method for building customizable large capacitor assemblies that capitalize on the vertical space above the circuit board.
EIA MLCC Case Sizes: Past And Future
Standards are a form of technical infrastructure, and their influence is felt throughout the electronics industry. For example, formed in 1924, the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) was an American standards organization that established an alliance of trade associations in the United States electronics manufacturing industry.
Solving Tough Technical Challenges Through Agility And Experience
At Knowles Precision Devices, we thrive on working with companies who want to take technically challenging ideas and work through the details to figure out how to turn their seemingly impossible ideas into reality.
