Ohmite develops a low cost, highly reliable 45W SMT TO-252 resistor.

Ohmite introduces the TKH45 series of SMD TO‐252 resistors. This new design separates the TKH45 from others on the market. The TKH45 is a flat chip containing the same land pattern as a standard TO‐252 part.

There are several key advantages to this design form:

1) The TKH45 series doesn’t require wire‐bonding or molding. This reduces costs and simplifies construction.

2) Since there are no wire bonds or small resistance chips internally soldered, there is no fear of the internal chip de‐soldering internally at high temperatures.

3) Elimination of the internal chip as the resistor is printed directly on the substrate. This increases the surface area for the heat to escape and provides greater thermal efficiency, leading to 45 watts of power dissipation.

4) The TKH45 doesn’t require a header like other TO-252 devices and eliminates its added inefficiency.

5) The TKH45 has an extremely low profile, sitting far lower on the board than lower wattage device

Leadertech has developed SMT EMI gaskets.

Offered as “off the shelf” standard products, the innovative Leadertech SMG gaskets can be used for many different types of board level shielding needs especially when grounding points are required on your board.  Typical “form-in-place gaskets” can be eliminated by transferring the gasket to the board rather than to the thin edge of a casting or machined housing.

The SMG Gaskets require low compression and are resilient after compression. 

Dimensions start as small as 2.5mm L x 3mm W x 2.5mm H.

They are packaged in tape and reel for high speed SMT assembly and are reflowable.

They offer a low cost and reliable assembly option.,

Hirose now offers top mount USB 3.1 Type C connector.


Hirose has added a top-mount version to its compact USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C connector family to meet customer requests for a rugged USB connector with a small PCB footprint.

Designed for electronic devices susceptible to high-vibration and drop impacts, the top-mount CX90B1 Series USB connector offers enhanced mounting strength to the PCB for increased durability. With a depth of only 8.15mm, the miniature design creates additional PCB space for optimized antenna design and larger battery capacity. By comparison, conventional Type-C connectors are significantly longer, up to 9.4mm, which consumes valuable PCB real estate.

Supporting high-speed applications, the dual row CX90B1 Series USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C compliant interface connector delivers up to 10Gbps. The SMT connector features a symmetrical mating design that allows for reversible plug insertion. To improve mounting accuracy, the CX90B1 Series has built-in guide posts that ensure precise connector positioning and orientation on the PCB.

Accompanying the CX90B1 Series USB connector, the CX60 Series Type-C plug features a slim design and compact size with a length of only 11.10mm. The plug is designed to prevent short-circuit risk, as the housing separates the contact and the shell.

Hirose's unidirectional active optical connector system features built-in E/O-O/E devices that support up to 6.25Gbps.


Hirose has developed a unidirectional active optical connector system with built-in E/O on the Tx (transmit) end and an O/E on the Rx (receiver) end.

The BF4M optical connector system converts a balanced high-speed differential electrical signal on a PCB at one end into a MM optical signal for transmission down a very thin flexible FO cable, and then converts it back into an electrical signal on the other end.

Designed with an ultra-low profile and space-saving receptacle, the BF4M Series optical interconnects support high speed isolated signal transmission from 0.05Gbps up to 6.25Gbps and long-distance transmission up to 100m. The user-friendly optical connector features an innovative internal wiring system that offers all the benefits of fiber optic signaling including high signal quality, low power consumption (less than 120nW), and excellent EMI noise prevention.

The BF4M uses high flex fiber optic cable capable of withstanding significant bending cycles tested at a 2mm bending radius. The BF4M Series receptacle has a height of only 1.5mm, 11.5mm long, and 5.5mm wide.
