Capacitors: Theory and Application

This article presents the fundamentals and application of capacitors. What is a capacitor, and how do we select them? Techniques of selecting capacitors and things to consider when using capacitors are highlighted. Both practical examples and simulation are used to demonstrate the key points.

Ohm’s Law Also Applies to ESD‑Induced Heat Pulses

Heat flow analysis for semiconductor ESD situations can be approximated to one dimension, and then captured with a generalized Ohm’s Law using a complex impedance. Methods can include time-dependent electrothermal pulses and feedback due to self-heating, with solutions readily carried out on any desktop computer.

Archaeology and XRF

Telling the stories of smiths and kings in the same breath is all in a day’s work for an XRF gun.

What Are the Advantages of Capacitively Coupled TLP (CC-TLP)?

Within the past 18 years, many studies exploring 3 µm to 7 nm technologies have demonstrated the excellent correlation of CC-TLP with CDM in terms of stress current failure threshold as well as electrical failure and physical damage signature.

Product Safety and Liability Components in Focus

Explore the key components to keep in mind for your product safety strategy – from risk assessment to safety labels and manuals – and some of the ways that they all work together to improve safety and reduce risk.
