Low Profile 3D Silicon Capacitors for Embedded Technology (100μm Thickness)

It is a well known fact that standard passive devices take 70% of board space, when, at the same time, the need for embedded technologies with miniature chips is growing significantly.

Thanks to its unique high capacitance density (up to 250nF/mm²), IPDiA has launched a full range of Low Profile Silicon Capacitors (LPSC), with a thickness of 100μm, offering different sizes from the miniature 01005, 0201, 0402, 0603, 0805 and up to 1206.

IPDiA LPSC range can offer for example a unique 01005 miniature capacitor, with an amazing 1,5nF value, or even a 100μm 1206 1μF.

All these capacitors have NiAu terminaisons, which make them perfect for embedded construction. Copper terminaisons are also available on request.

Advantages of the LPSC range in Embedded applications are detailed below:
  •     Increased reliability compared to X7R MLCC thanks to a very high Mean Time To Failure ( see graph below);
  •     Improvement of electrical parameters thanks to the ultra high stability of the silicon capacitors: ageing rate (0.001% per decade), high temperature stability (< ±0.5%), high voltage stability with a capacitance drop < 0.1% / Volts;
  •     Ultra miniaturization and weight savings;
Stress tests performed on our LPSC show that they can withstand several Newtons force.

Today’s main runners for embedded technology are in 0402, so please contact your IPDIA sales to check out our LPSC 0402 Silicon capacitor range, from 100pF to 100nF!

Whatever your requirements… Six standard package options are available, including EIA 1005, 0201, 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206 case sizes. Capacitors are available in DC voltage rating of 11 V and 100 V, with capacitance available from pF to 12 μF. Capacitance tolerance offerings include +/-5 %, +/-10 % and +/-20 %. Samples and production quantities are available now.

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…
