Convincing performance, considerable space savings: Panasonic Industry’s new R35K Board-to-FPC connector

Connectors: Board to FPC R35K Panasonic Industry

Space-saving design and extremely tough when it comes to vibrations and other physical effects - to sum up, these would be the key requirements for components in modern wearables such as smartwatches, headphones, hearing aids and portable health care devices.

Wearables doubtlessly are a growth market, so those components combining high functionality and reliability with slim design aesthetics will be extremely valuable for space critical applications.

Ready for harsh automotive conditions: Panasonic Industry’s surface-mounted Power Choke Coil

Inductor: Automotive ETQP Panasonic Industry

Considering all this, Panasonic Industry now introduced its latest automotive power inductor: Being only half the size of a conventional ferrite type, this new SMD Power Choke Coil is ready for high currents under harsh automotive conditions. It can be operated under temperatures up to 160℃ including self heating - and even shows stable behaviour at several hours up to 180℃. Its low loss characteristics ensure a high ECU efficiency and contribute to simplify the overall thermal design process.

New JX series extends SP-Cap Polymer capacitor line-up


Panasonic Industry has expanded the successful SP-Cap technology further with the new JX series – a high endurance and particularly heat tolerant series.

Coming with the typically low ESR, a large capacitance, a low profile, long life span and high characteristic stability, this latest member of the SP-Cap family stands out with an endurance of 3,000 hours at 125°C and thus promises an exceptional reliability. Its remarkable damp heat specifications – 1,000 hours at 85°C 85%RH – render it suitable for demanding outdoor applications.
