Devices dissolve on demand

Researchers from the University of Illinois describe how heat-triggered self-destructing electronic devices work and explain what the goal is.

The importance of selecting the right circuit protection

Circuit protection is designed as an intentional weak link which can combat catastrophic failure due to surges in power and other destructive events. But, how do you select the right components? This video from Littelfuse gives insights into the decision making process.

Li-ion thermal runaway captured by 3D imaging techniques

A team led by UCL has used 3D imaging techniques to determine what happens inside a lithium-ion battery when it overheats and then explodes. According to the researchers, it is important to understand how Li-ion batteries fail in order to improve their design to make them safer to use and transport. Recently, three airlines announced they will no longer carry bulk shipments of lithium-ion batteries after the US Federal Aviation Administration found overheating batteries could cause major fires.
