InterDigitated Capacitor

InterDigitated Capacitors, available in 0508 and 0612 case sizes, work by connecting a single capacitor with a series of eight or ten vias to power and ground planes in an alternating pattern. Capacitance values range from 0.01µF to .68µF at 16V; 0.01µF to 2.2µF at 10V; and 0.01µF to 3.3µF at 4V with tolerances of ±20% in an X7R/X5R dielectric.

High Temperature Cores

The 200C Series of core materials operates at 200°C without changes caused by elevated temperatures. Made from a magnetic alloy instead of iron powder, these -60 and -70 types have permeabilities of 55 and 100. Toroid core sizes range from 0.160 in. to 4 in. outside diameters and E-cores with a back leg from .500 in. to 4.50 in.

Smart LDO

The SP6231 smart LDO voltage regulator manages dual power sources in USB-enabled, battery-powered peripherals. It extends battery life by switching from the peripheral's power source to the host's 5V USB bus. The 500mA, fixed 3.3V CMOS regulator has an auxiliary on-board power control switch, and is fault protected for overcurrent, overvoltage, and thermal runaway conditions.
