MLCC Shortages: Considering Your Options

Thumb original 2

Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are ubiquitous in today’s electronics designs. They make up an estimated 30% of the component count in many products, with a market value of more than $8 billion.

Recently, there have been shortages in MLCCs, with lead times extending to problematic lengths, and these capacity limitations are expected to extend to 2020 and beyond. In this whitepaper, we will look at the reasons for these shortages, and review the alternatives to MLCCs that are available to engineers.

Solving Tomorrow’s Obsolescence Challenges Today

Test engineers spend as much as 50 percent of their time (or even more in some cases) actively dealing with obsolescence in their test program sets.

Read about best practices in operations implementation, hardware acquisition, and software design to reduce the sustainment burden of handling obsolescence in test systems long before the equipment goes end of life. ...

Fundamentals of Building a Test System

Most organizations do not consider production test a top priority, but it is a necessity to prevent major quality issues in the products that represent the company brand in the hands of customers. The costs, however, can be significant and are often greatly misunderstood, especially when there’s no easy way to quantify the positive business impact of high-quality products or shortened time to market. But best-in-class organizations are unfazed by this “necessary evil” viewpoint, because they seek to understand the total cost of developing, depl ...

Secure Access to Field Device Data Holds the Key to Digitization and Optimized Maintenance

The digitization of field devices offers plant operators a huge potential to reduce operating costs while increasing productivity. With over 40 million field devices installed, the HART communication protocol is the most widely used digital communication technology in the process industry.

This Whitepaper shows how the HART signal can be used for continuous device monitoring and diagnosis to provide considerable added value over the complete plant lifecycle – from planning and installation through to operation and maintenance.
