Mouser Electronics, Inc has published a new eBook in collaboration with Apex Microtechnology, examining the challenges and nuances of developing high-reliability components. In 'An Engineer's Guide to High Reliability Components', experts from Apex Microtechnology provide rich insights into the most challenging aspects of high-reliability design. The eBook comprises five detailed articles covering thermal management, hermetically sealed packaging, and silicon carbide.
New electronic devices enable substantial performance improvements in aerospace, industrial, and medical applications. However, these vital industries require the highest levels of reliability; any technology failure may result in disastrous consequences. The new eBook meets the design challenges of analogue power electronics for high-reliability devices. The eBook also incorporates product information for ten relevant Apex Microtechnology solutions, linking engineers with the exact components required to enhance the reliability of their device designs. The Power Operational (Linear) Amplifiers from the company support applications that need high current and high voltage, with output currents ranging from 0.01A to 100A (peak) and slew rates of up to 3000V/µs. The power operational amplifiers are excellent for precision power analogue applications, including electrostatic/magnetic deflection and DC/servo motion control.
The new eBook also provides information on the SA310 Brushless DC Motor Driver. This motor driver delivers improved efficiency with 30A continuous output per phase, employing silicon carbide MOSFET technology. The motor driver supports various applications, including motor control, power inverters, test equipment, and variable frequency drives.
