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.

Reflect together, discuss and profit

Workshops, seminars and conferences take place regularly and draw many participants attention to Duisburg.

Defy the heat

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.
