Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Liberty, SC, introduced Slimpack type MLSH hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitors that feature a glass-to-metal seal that prevents dry-out. The capacitors can replace parallel and series banks of wet tantalum capacitors for new and existing designs, especially where bulk storage is paramount. The capacitors measure 1.0 × 1.5 × 0.5" and offer more capacitance than a parallel bank of three or more wet tantalum capacitors at -55 °C.

3D Printers

HP, Palo Alto, CA, announced the HP Jet Fusion 3D 3200 and 4200 commercial 3D printing systems that print functional parts at the individual voxel level. A voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing. The printer features an open materials and software innovation platform, an enclosed processing station with a fast-cooling module, and non-hazardous HP 3D High Reusability PA12 multi-purpose thermoplastic material.
