TVS protection for USB 3.1/Thunderbolt data lines

Central Semiconductor's CFTVS5V0BULC is an ultra-low capacitance 5.0V bi-directional TVS in the space saving SOD-882L. This device provides up to 15kV of transient voltage protection for high speed USB 3.1, Thunderbolt and HDMI 2.0 interfaces. The low 0.35pF maximum capacitance of the CFTVS5V0BULC is an essential characteristic in preventing signal degradation.

Experiments explain why some liquids are 'fragile' and others are 'strong'

Thumbnail

Only recently has it become possible to accurately "see" the structure of a liquid. Using X-rays and a high-tech apparatus that holds liquids without a container, Kenneth Kelton, PhD, the Arthur Holly Compton Professor in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, was able to compare the behavior of glass-forming liquids as they approach the glass transition....

The Beginning of the End for Wearable Devices

In 2013, wearable devices began to take off in the consumer and medical industries, particularly with fitness and health tracking devices. The NPD group believes that the market will swell to 91 million units in 2015, but some insiders predict that fitness wearables only have two more years before they’re rendered obsolete by increasing smartphone functionality – that is, of course, contingent on whatever Apple’s wearable “dream team” is working on releasing in the next year.
