SINGAPORE — element14 (formerly Farnell), the industry’s first fusion of commerce and community supporting engineers and purchasing professionals worldwide, today announced the addition of the Johanson Technology and Johanson Dielectrics high frequency ceramic solutions to its 130,000-strong inventory as part of its global franchise distribution agreement. element14 will offer a broad range of multi and single layer capacitors, RF inductors, LTCC based chip antennas, baluns, balanced filters, band pass filters, low pass filters, couplers, and diplexers, as well as other products from Johanson Technology and Johanson Dielectrics, a leading specialist in the design and supply of ceramic solutions and a comprehensive range of RF specific applications.
element14 now offers the X2Y Filter and Decoupling Capacitors series that is specifically designed to prevent energy inference among the multitude of subsystems within electronics. The compact capacitors allow engineers to maximise their broad space and reduce assembly costs with superior EMI suppression or decoupling function without the need for multiple components.
These capacitors employ a unique, patented low inductance design featuring two balanced capacitors that are immune to temperature, voltage and aging performance differences. These features provide unprecedented durability and performance for the components, leading to improved end-products’ lifespan. The X2Y capacitors are versatile and have a broad variety of applications including, amplifier filter and decoupling, high speed data filtering, EMC I/O Filtering as well as DDR memory decoupling, offering engineers across different sectors unparalleled flexibility.
Technology today is continuously evolving; innovation in this regard is being driven by consumers’ demand for intuitive devices and industries’ need for productive and more efficient equipment. As capacitors are an essential part of almost all electronic designs, engineers are constantly challenged to source for versatile energy management solutions which allow them to implement effective electrical regulation in increasingly sophisticated designs.
“Capacitors are fundamental components for almost all the electronics that we use today in developing technologies in the Asia Pacific,” says Ian Johnson, European Sales Manager, Johanson Technology. “element14’s unique service propositions closely align with our business objectives in the region. We believe their multi-channel distribution network will allow engineers to easily access our high performance capacitor solutions and provide timely and relevant tools to satisfy their evolving requirements.”
“Engineers across different industries require versatile solutions to address their increasingly sophisticated high speed data applications,” says David Lok, Product Manager, element14, Asia Pacific. “Our global partnership with Johanson Technology and Johanson Dielectrics will equip engineers in the region with the most advanced and high quality capacitors solutions, enabling for faster time to market cycles.”
element14 offers no minimum order quantity and next day delivery to most cities in Asia Pacific as well as 24 hour customer and technical support. In addition, the element14 knode provides an online design platform with solutions such as development kits, design tools, operating system and stacks, and services such as PCB design and manufacture, which significantly improve engineers’ time to market and optimize the capacitors’ functions in their designs.
