How a $5 Capacitor Turned Into a $1 Billion Problem

Posted by Peter Matthews on Oct 2, 2019 3:10:24 PM

In mission-critical applications, additional screening and testing is required to ensure that only the most robust parts make it to the finished product. Preventative measures, like high quality standards, lessen the possibility of failure in the field and minimize the likelihood of astronomical downstream costs.

Navigating Capacitor Screening Standards

Posted by Bob Nelson on Aug 14, 2019 9:25:00 AM

Compared to other applications, a medical implant is a rather benign environment for a capacitor; it’s temperature-controlled with a relatively low voltage. That being said, the success of a capacitor in a medical implant relies heavily on manufacturing components to avoid failures and the know-how to screen for any production discrepancies. As the reliability grade of a component progresses, more screening and testing is required to ensure that only the most robust parts make it to the finished product.
