CDE Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. announces a major product expansion of standard and custom high energy storage, pulse-discharge capacitors. These are specialized devices, designed for applications requiring repetitive high energy and high voltage charge/discharge cycles.
Researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign have devised a method of combining capacitors and inductors in a tiny, 3D rolled membrane. This will save space in the electronic filters found in phones and other wireless devices. They eliminate or enhance specific input signals to get the best output signals. While essential, these filters take up space on the chips that researchers are constantly trying to make smaller.
By introducing defects to a common ceramic material, Berkeley Lab researchers create a highly efficient capacitor with dramatically increased energy density.
This MarketEYE article discusses the subject of supercapacitors from a perspective of 25 years of behind-the-scenes consulting on markets, technologies and opportunities related to double layer carbon and mixed metal oxide components, operating at the maximum available capacitance range.
This article reveals how the global markets for capacitors and resistors reacted to the global pandemic of 2020 and forecasts near term changes in the markets for mass produced components such as capacitors and resistors that are ubiquitous and mission-critical to the high-tech economy.
Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has developed the world’s first*1 multilayer ceramic capacitor with a capacitance value of 1.0µF in the 01005 inch size (0.4×0.2mm), which is increasingly used in a wide range of mobile electronic devices including smartphones. Mass production of the GRM022R60G105M with a rated voltage of 4Vdc has already started and mass production of GRM022R60J105M with a rated voltage of 6.3Vdc is scheduled to begin in 2021.
Chinese makers of passive components have been keen on capacity expansions for high-end MLCC capacitors, providing lucrative business opportunities for Taiwan’s equipment makers, according to industry sources.
Chinese makers of passive components have been keen on capacity expansions for high-end MLCC capacitors, providing lucrative business opportunities for Taiwan’s equipment makers, according to industry sources.Judging from equipment shipment pull-ins in the first half of 2020, investments by Chinese passive components makers are at least five times as much as those by their Taiwanese peers, aiming to better tap demand for 5G base station, handset and new energy vehicle applications, the sources said.
