Products & Services
Food Additives
Food additives include flavoring extracts, syrups, emulsifiers, anti-oxidants, fortifiers and other substances that are added to food products to enhance processing, texture, flavor or other characteristics.
Tunnel Diodes
Tunnel diodes are heavily doped P-N diodes in which electron tunneling from the conduction band in the N-type material to the valence band in the P-type region produces a region of negative resistance. This negative-resistance region is the most important area of operation. As the voltage is increased, the current decreases. This feature makes tunneling diodes especially useful in oscillators and radio frequency (RF) applications.
Laser Drivers
Laser drivers control and manage the operation of lasers used for switching in optical networks.
CPU Chips
CPU chips or central processing unit chips are used in digital computers and are the semiconductor component where most calculations take place.
