What is Electromagnetic Interference?

Understanding what electromagnetic interference (EMI) means is essential to the safety and efficiency of countless electrical devices we rely on daily. This invisible yet pervasive force has many adverse effects that can interrupt, degrade, or even stop electronic devices and systems from performing as intended. If you want to know what EMI is, we’ll explore […]

Properties of Various Thermal Interface Materials

What Are Thermal Interface Materials? Chips in electronic devices can generate a lot of heat during operation, which can damage fragile internal components. But thermal interface materials, or TIMs, can protect them by dissipating the heat and transferring it away from the internal configuration. TIMs are manufactured from a wide range of materials to align […]

Benefits of Potting Electronics

To provide electronic components with sufficient protection against an array of hazards, many fabricators use a process called potting. By potting electronics, you better safeguard electronic wiring, parts, and devices from premature failure so as not to compromise electronic systems. Learn more about potting in electronics, how it works, and its benefits and applications. What […]

Conductive Tapes – A Selection Guide

Conductive tapes are flexible adhesives that conduct current on one or both sides. These tapes are a useful and cost-effective option for electronic assembly, especially in shielding or grounding applications. Conductive tape offers many advantages over other assembly methods such as soldering or mechanical fastening. Tapes are flexible, easy to apply, and offer better performance […]

Potting vs Conformal Coating for Electronic Protection

Electronic components, including printed circuit boards (PCBs), often sustain damage and wear as a result of exposure to harsh environments. Conformal coatings offer protection for these components from a variety of potentially damaging environmental factors, including dust, moisture, chemicals, and salt, along with mechanical abrasion and changes in temperature. With the help of reliable conformal […]

A Guide to ESD Grounding Methods

In an ever-so technological world, working with highly sensitive electronic devices has become increasingly common across a range of businesses. With that comes certain dangers, such as electrostatic discharge (ESD). ESD refers to the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by instances such as a short or breakdown. ESD poses life-threatening […]

A Closer Look at Thermal Radical Cure Adhesives for the Electronics Industry

Thermal radical cure (TRC) adhesives are 100% solid formulations based on UV curable resins. This type of adhesive is commonly as hot melt and semi-structural adhesives. These adhesives were created to harness some of the best features of traditional silicone adhesives while eliminating or reducing many of the drawbacks. This blog post will discuss why thermal radical […]
