Ultrafast SMD Avalanche Rectifier

Ultrafast SMD Avalanche Rectifier Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. released a new high-voltage, ultrafast surface-mount avalanche rectifier in the plastic DO-214AC package. The BYG23T combines a low 1.98 mm profile with extremely high reverse voltage of 1,300 V and fast 75 ns reverse recovery time. The rectifier released today is optimized for high-voltage, high-frequency rectification in switchmode […]

SMD Pulse Transformer

SMD Pulse Transformer In order to convey pulsed signals at high speeds over Ethernet links, stable galvanic isolation must be provided between the input and output. The new TDK ALT4532 series of SMD pulse transformers employs an innovative automated coil winding technique and features very uniform electrical properties with a much smaller footprint. LAN connectivity […]

SMD FM Transmitter

Let’s construct a low-power FM transmitter using surface-mount devices (SMD) that will be received with a standard FM radio. Soldering surface mounted devices is not so hard and actually is quite easy. There are many designs for small FM transmitters but they have some problems. First, you need an audio amplifier to get enough modulation. […]
