United Chemi-Con (UCC), a subsidiary of Japan's Miyagi, is the world's largest manufacturer and supplier of aluminum electrolytic capacitors in North America. The products include solid conductive polymers for electronic ballasts, automotive modules, computer equipment and aluminum, high temperature and high anti-vibration capacitance, industry-leading multilayer ceramicIN fundamentally improving the Y5U and the new X5R and X7R dielectrics. Most of these products are surface-mount, radial or snap-in style and most use environmentally friendly materials as a standard.
Linear Technology Corporation, a subsidiary of Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), introduced the LT8609S, a 2A (3A peak), 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its unique Silent Switcher® 2 architecture utilizes two internal input capacitors and internal BST and INTVCC capacitors to minimize thermal loop area. The LT8609S is designed to significantly reduce EMI/EMC emissions due to the extremely well-controlled switching edges, with an internal ground plane and copper posts instead of bond wires.
