App note: Choosing the appropriate component from data sheet ratings & characteristics.

Chossing the right power semiconductor for an application, a technical note from IXYS. Link here This application note is intended to show how to choose the appropriate rating of a power semiconductor component for a known application using the specifications given in the datasheet. The explanations have been kept sufficiently general to be applicable to […]


Hunting and opening heavy PDF files to check IC pinouts is a real pain. ChipDB looks like an awesome quick reference concept, with none of the frustration of those awful datasheet aggregators. There’s not a lot of chips yet, but we found the 4066 quad bilateral switch that’s used to control the pull-up resistors on […]
