Embedded passive component technology masterclass well received
Nov 25, 2004
At the recent NPL, National Physical Laboratory, Masterclass, part of the ongoing series inviting world class presenters to Teddington, Dr Richard Ulrich, the international recognised expert and author of the book 'Integrated Passive Component Technology', gave a comprehensive discourse on the current and future benefits of embedded passives.
Richard outlined the types of products that currently feature embedded technology; many are household names and have used these materials for the last 5 years.
Embedded components will have an impact on board technology but also on SMT component placement, fewer parts to place means faster throughput speed in production and less passive parts on the surface of the board. This leaves more room for the design engineer to include more active circuitry.
Dr. Ulrich is located at The High Density Electronics Centre, University of Arkansas and is a member of the National Electronics Manufacturer's Institute, (NEMI) Committee on Future Technologies.
