Silicon photomultipliers are an exciting technology enabling applications previously only available with large, bulky PMTs to be implemented in small, low-cost, low-power form factors. If you have demanding low-light detection requirements for an upcoming project where a PMT would be too bulky, expensive, or fragile, I strongly encourage you to take a look at silicon […]

Multi-layer ceramic chip capacitor MLCC are the most common capacitor found in modern electronics. MLCCs have many attractive features: low ESR, good capacitance-to-volume ratio, relatively low leakage, non-polarity, and low cost. It’s no wonder that when choosing a capacitor, an electrical engineer will usually specify a ceramic first before any other type. However, there is […]
