btnBack.pngDennis ZogbiThere are many specific sub-segments of the global ceramic capacitor market. It is possible to look at the market from the perspective of high voltage, high frequency, high temperature; or specific harsh environment component operation. Paumanok takes a granular approach to these segments because they are the most profitable, the most fragmented and the most difficult to understand, not only for those actively participating but especially for those mainstream ceramic capacitor manufacturers wishing to enter advanced capacitor markets. Microwave ceramic capacitors represent only 2% of the global market for ceramic capacitors, but have significant profitability and growth potential....Continue Reading >>btnForward.png

btnBack.pngMurray SlovickBandgap is the term used for the amount of energy needed to release electrons in semiconductor materials so that the electrons can move freely, enabling the flow of electricity. Wide Bandgap (WBG) semiconductors such as gallium-nitride (GaN) and silicon-carbide (SiC) have bandgaps significantly greater than those of silicon semiconductors. WBG materials have several characteristics that make them useful compared to lower bandgap materials: WBG semiconductors are able to operate at higher voltages and power densities than silicon-based semiconductors. WBG semiconductors also can operate at higher frequencies, which help to simplify system circuitry and reduce system costs....Continue Reading >>btnForward.png
