Samsung launches PMICs for TWS (true wireless stereo) earbuds

Samsung has announced two “all-in-one” PMICs, MUA01 and MUB01, specifically designed for today’s true wireless stereo (TWS) devices. Unlike wireless headphones, TWS earbuds have no wire that connects the two earpieces. The MUA01 and MUB01 PMICs have been designed for the charging case and the earbuds respectively. The devices reportedly integrate up to ten discrete ...

PCB assembly: avoid hot-shortness or partial re-flow

Gordon McAlpine, is production manager at PCB assembly firm Dynamic EMS, has sent in a tip on how to avoid hot shortness, also referred to as partial re-flow, where a connection has been heated close to melt temperatures causing grain boundary weakening. The risk is that components can be partially re-flow, significantly weakening their attachment, when a ...
