New Tech Tuesdays: Check These E-Books to Keep Up with the Latest in Automotive Technology Tommy Cummings
In this week’s New Tech Tuesday, we’ll review e-books provided by Vishay, Microchip Technology, ROHM Semiconductor, and NXP for design engineers to get up to speed on automotive design.

New Tech Tuesdays: Tantalum Capacitors Provide Stability, Capacity, and Reliability for Numerous Applications Tommy Cummings
In this week's New Tech Tuesday, we'll check out tantalum capacitors from Panasonic, KEMET Electronics, and Vishay/Sprague.

An Automotive Grade Above Vishay
Vishay understands the challenge of designing for the road. They design and manufacture the fundamental building blocks of every electronic system. When it comes to automobiles and other types of vehicles, every component is important, down to the last resistor.

Creating a Sound People Can't Resist: MELF Resistors Paul Golata
As a Senior Technology Specialist, I am always interested and looking at the most advanced technologies and applications. When it comes to audio, I recently became aware of something that I had never really spent any time on considering, the ubiquitous resistor. I had soldered oodles of them on to various guitar effects and amplifier repairs over the years, but have never spent much real time investigating their sonic qualities.

Seeing The Light: A Circuit For Interfacing With Ambient Light Sensors Mike Parks
We built a smart mailbox, as related in an article, that had an ambient light sensor to detect when the mailbox door was opened. In that project we used a Vishay ambient light sensor (Mouser Part #782-TEPT4400) that acts very much like an NPN transistor, in fact the part is also referred to as a phototransistor. The difference being (when compared to a normal bipolar junction transistor) that instead of needing a base lead to setup the bias voltage, photons provide energy at the base-collector junction to turn the transistor on, thus allowing current flow from collector-to-emitter.
