Tiny, surface mount, hermetic voltage references offer outstanding stability

Linear Technology announces the LS8 reference family, a series of hermetic precision voltage references packaged in a 5 x 5 mm surface mount, low stress ceramic package. These precision voltage references offer outstanding long term stability and consistent predictable behavior, over time and operating conditions. For instrumentation that demands the best possible performance over years or decades of operation, the LS8 package offers an alternative to large metal can or ceramic DIP packages.

UltraSource Inc. releases new thin film microcircuit CopperVia

UltraSource Inc., a supplier of custom thin film circuits and ceramic interconnect devices, announced the new CopperVia™, based on the existing patented UltraVia™ process. The CopperVia will be introduced at 2012 IEEE MTT-S IMS, June 19 - 22nd  at booth 2802. UltraSource’s new CopperVia process fills vias with pure copper material to provide a low cost, highly conductive, extremely reliable electrical and thermal path in ceramic thin film substrates. Like its sister technology, UltraVia, the CopperVia virtually eliminates epoxy or solder bleed-through while maximizing thermal and electrical conductivity and reliability.
