Heat-resistant capacitors: Stability at up to 300 degrees
Heat is one of the worst enemies of electronics. It can disrupt functionality and cause electronic components to age more quickly, or even destroy them. Now Fraunhofer researchers have developed a capacitor that can withstand temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius.
New procedures of post-processing serve the integration of sensors with electronics onto a microchip. Deploying these high-end sensors in thermography and the health sector is part of the special know-how of the institute.
High temperature electronics enable the application of microelectronic circuits within a temperature range of up to 250 °C. Ordinary electronics already reach their limits at 125 ºC under such harsh conditions.
