Switched On: MOSFET Selection Guide

Switched On: MOSFET Selection Guide

MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors) are heavily used in a most of the electronics we use every day. When looking at it from a sheer numbers perspective, the vast majority are contained within what is known as an integrated circuit. These parts can contain anywhere from hundreds to billions of the devices on a single chip and perform a myriad of different functions.

High Speed Signal Integrity in FPCs

High Speed Signal Integrity in FPCs

Modern PCB manufacturing in FR4 provides designers with an incredible range of control, and has become a familiar and mature technology. However, many applications have mechanical requirements that conflict with the rigid, planar geometry inherent in PCBs. Flexible printed circuits, or “FPCs,” offer an alternative to conventional PCB substrates and allow for a broad range of applications that would otherwise be impossible or impracticable to produce.
