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.

Decreasing Time to Design in the Industrial Internet of Things

Discussions about the industrial market today are often focused on the vast potential in the industrial IoT (IIoT). The huge potential for innovation offers the promise of significant productivity gains, operational efficiency and bottom line revenue increases, but only if it’s enabled by a supply chain based on reliability, stability and longevity.

These values will be even more important as manufacturers and system integrators adopt greater levels of automation, connectivity and autonomy—all with faster design cycles and more competition i ...

Key Considerations for Powertrain HIL Test

Safety, availability, and cost considerations can make performing thorough tests of embedded control devices using the complete system impractical. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is a real-time test technique used to test these devices more efficiently. During HIL test, the physical system that interfaces to an embedded control device is simulated on real-time hardware, and the outputs of the simulator mimic the actual output of the physical system. The embedded controller “thinks” it is in a real system. HIL simulation meticulously test ...

Understanding the Causes and Consequences of Occupational Hearing Loss

Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the most commonly reported occupational disease. In the EU approximately 52 million people report having hearing loss. Despite being avoidable in most cases, NIHL is expected to become even more widespread in decades to come, with 1.1 billion young people at risk globally.

This whitepaper provides insight into the importance of understanding the causes of occupational NIHL and the consequences associated with it – to both individual workers and businesses. ...
