  • 3 Methods to reduce nominal operating power in relays
    November 14, 2016
    Every day energy is being wasted through inefficient technologies – ultimately costing people money. To help alleviate this issue, new features are being added to the components designed into various devices. Relays, for examples, can have huge energy saving benefits when designed into applications like Photovoltaic (PV) Systems.

    When designing an application, the goals of quality and reliability are always a priority. If an application stops working prematurely – the associated brand will build a poor reputation quickly as well as incur additional costs for replacement products. A frequent culprit of short lived products are the SD cards designed into them. The lifetime of SD Cards can vary dramatically depending on differences in memory type, controller features and the host access pattern.
  • AEC-Q100 compliant SD cards
    September 08, 2016
    AEC-Q100 is a failure mechanism-based stress test qualification created by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) for integrated circuits (IC). Qualified ICs are built to meet the intense reliability, quality and temperature demands of harsh environments. Specifications that must be met include a series of electrical, lifetime and reliability stress tests, as well as testing in various temperature ranges.    
  • Panasonic offers AEC-Q200 compliant components
    August 19, 2016
    There is no doubt that there are great demands placed on passive components in an automotive environment. These parts could be exposed to a multitude of variables at any given time including high temperature, thermal shock and moisture. In the quest to guarantee the reliability and quality of passive components used in these conditions, the AEC-Q200 global standard was created by the Automotive Electronic Council (AEC).
