Added a new page on the SOT-416 family of component packages.
June 2023 Updates
Added information about electrolyte leakage in electrolytic capacitors.
Fixed bug which resulting in the embedded circuitjs iframe’s from being displayed correctly (unsure of what was caused the problem to occur in the first place).
Added info on differences between “solid” and “wet” tantalum capacitors.
Added a new
asideshortcode for Markdown and changed the styling of the asides (called admonitions in AsciiDoc) so that the title and icon are a top-bar rather than a side-bar (looks better when there is longer content in the aside).
Added info on the TO-220-7 and TO-220-7C variants of the TO-220 component package family.
Added a new page on the TO-206 component package family.
Fixed error where the
SOT-490was incorrectly labelled as
