Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. extended its offering of TrenchFET® p-channel Gen III power MOSFETs with a new device that offers the lowest on-resistance ever for a p-channel MOSFET. Designed to increase efficiency in mobile computing devices, the -20 V Vishay Siliconix Si7157DP offers on-resistance of 0.0016 Ω and 0.0020 Ω at -10 V and -4.5 V ratings, respectively.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced that it has enhanced its ACAS 0612 precision thin film chip resistor arrays with tighter absolute TCR down to ± 10 ppm/K, relative TCR down to ± 5 ppm/K, and relative tolerance down to ± 0.05 % for automotive, industrial, and telecommunications applications.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. extended its VJ X8R series of surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) for high-temperature applications. To save board space, the devices are now offered in the 0402 case size. In addition, the 0603 and 0805 case sizes have been enhanced with a higher voltage rating of 100 V.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced two new IHTH high-current, high-temperature through-hole inductors in the 0750 and 1125 case sizes. For automotive applications, the AEC-Q200-qualified IHTH-0750IZ-5A and IHTH-1125KZ-5A feature high operating temperatures to +155 °C, high rated currents to 125 A, and a wide range of inductance values from 0.47 µH to 100 µH.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new surface-mount Power Metal Strip® resistor featuring a wide side terminal construction that yields a high 2 W power rating in the compact 1020 case size. The WSL1020 combines its high power-to-footprint-size ratio with extremely low resistance values down to 0.003 Ω and stable resistance tolerances to 0.5 percent.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 8787 case size with industry-high rated current from 9.7 A to 180 A and a high operating temperature to + 155 °C. The IHLP-8787MZ-5A offers high efficiency with maximum DCR from 0.17 mΩ to 28.30 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 100 µH.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new Power Metal Strip® battery shunt resistor featuring a molded enclosure with a four-pin connector. Providing easy PCB connection to the shunt resistor assembly, the WSBM8518 allows design engineers to focus on circuit development instead of PCB connection issues.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced the industry's first wirebondable thin film chip resistors with compact 40 x 40 mil (1 x 1 mm) footprints to feature high resistance to 100 MΩ. The new CS44 <http://www.vishay.com/doc?60114> series features low TCR down to ± 50 ppm/°C and tolerances to ± 0.5 %.
