Breakthroughs In Capacitors: IPDiA Introduces What Is Surely The First 10 µF Silicon Capacitor Ever Commercialized

IPDiA, leading supplier of 3D silicon passive components, brings to the electronic market the first 10 µF Silicon capacitor with outstanding stability and reliability features, specifically designed for all demanding applications.

IPDiA broadens its Silicon capacitor portfolio with the introduction of a new 10 µF capacitor built with its patented 3D Silicon technology, with an amazing low leakage current down to 12 nA to fill the needs for lower leakage current in battery-operated products.

Laurent Dubos, IPDiA Marketing Director, stated “IPDiA 3D Silicon technology brings to capacitors impressive performance. In defibrillator applications for instance, such a low leakage current is equivalent to a hundred days increase in lifetime, compared with what can be obtained with Tantalum devices.”

With its high stability in terms of voltage (<0.1 %/V) and aging, this capacitor exceeds the needs of the medical, aerospace, automotive, industrial markets, etc. IPDiA Silicon Capacitor offers an operating temperature range from -55 °C to +100 °C with capacitance shift limited to +/-1 %.Thanks to its very low ESR and ESL, this capacitor has an excellent high frequency noise characteristic and is very efficient on output DC filtering.

IPDiA’s technology provides Failure In Time (FIT) ten times better than standard SMD at 37 °C and 10 000 times better at 85 °C. This performance demonstrates the robust reliability of the Silicon component.

Whatever your requirements IPDiA also offers a wide range of capacitances including EIA 1005, 0201, 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206 case sizes.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
