W+P: Stable hold thanks to locks on the housing

Connector housings essentially fulfil two functions: They ensure a reliable connection between plug and mating part and protect the connector and its inner-life from mechanical, electrical and thermal influences. 

Housings can do even more - thanks to their coded design, they guarantee reverse polarity protection and optional strain reliefs intercept e.g. high forces to protect the cables. In addition, housing locks provide components with a solid hold against unintentional disconnection - thus the most varied types with their interlocking mechanical fixtures ensure reliable fastening.

Product Announcement: Adjustable Current Limiting Diode by Central

Central Semiconductor’s CMJA5050 is a 50V Current Limiting Diode (CLD) developed to meet design requirements for maintaining a constant current with adjustable current regulation from 50mA to 80mA. This adjustable device eliminates the need to use several individual different CLDs in order to meet the current regulation values required.

Product Announcement: Wide Input Voltage Micro-Power Low Dropout Regulators by DIODES

The AP7383/4 are ultra-low quiescent current (micropower) wide input voltage range (AP7383 up to 30V, AP7384 up to 40V) low dropout regulators.
This combined with their high accuracy (1% tolerance) makes them ideal for use in various USB and portable devices.

W+P: High Current Connectorsystem with 9.0 mm pitch

Connectors are the least noticed parts of an end product. Mostly installed on a PCB, they are usually invisible except for the external connection to the power source and are often underestimated. An electronic device without connectors? Unthinkable!

Completely against the trend of ever smaller pitches and component heights, W+P offers a giant in 9.0mm pitch. It also has its buyers, in this case products from the embedded computing sector and the general current supply of peripheral devices.

Rohm: Impact of outbreak of new Coronavirus in our Philippines factory

We would like to use this opportunity to give an update on the effects of the new Coronavirus on the production status of our Philippines factory.
As a result of the new coronavirus tests at our Philippines factory on July 9, the results showed positive for multiple employees.

W+P: Connectors with circumferential housing shielding

W+P offers shielded connectors as protection against unwanted electromagnetic influences, in order to meet the interference-free signal and current supply requirements of the industry.

The shielding of the series 5692 is achieved by a circumferential metallic housing made of steel, which is connected with a clip to the insulator of the pin header. This shielding plate, which is already integrated, is soldered directly to the PCB and its design satisfies the requirement for the protection of surrounding areas. This means that sensitive signals can be transmitted with low interference and also received just as clearly.

W+P: High-Speed Board-to-Board Connectors for Data Rates of up to 28 GB/s

These are used whenever printed circuit boards need to be stacked compactly in restricted spaces. We are talking about B-t-B (Board-to-Board) connectors which, thanks to their low component height, ensure that the PCB distance is negligible. On account of the fact that, in line with the prevailing trend, the increase in the data rate is almost in direct proportion to the decrease in the housing size, W+P’s new B-t-B connectors also offer an optimal solution in this regard.

ROHM: Impact of new Coronavirus spreading on production and shipment at our factories worldwide

We would like to use this opportunity to give an update on the effects of the new Coronavirus on the production statuses of our factories around the world.

We will continue to do our utmost to resume operations as soon as possible, while paying close attention to the effects of the new Coronavirus and the activities of the national authorities. We sincerely ask for your understanding.
