Is it true that turned off PCs get older/broken if its turned off for too long?

:D Thanks to technology I became more paranoid every day, is it true that turned-off computers can get older in terms of lifespan or gets a break in some way if they are stay turned off for too long time? I always thought the dust and overheating are the enemies. I've seen this saying "The Best" cap...

NCP1380B Application Problem

;) Hey, guys! Now I have an NCP1380B application problem. It's about the switch between QR mode and VCO mode . Using NCP1380B as a switching power supply, the output voltage is 24V, 3.75A. The no-load power consumption is below 0.5W when the input voltage is 220Vac, but the no-load power consumption...

How to solder a 70 °C (158 °F) thermal fuse

For my DMX project (schematics is not important), I soldered this thermal fuse which has just two leads (see picture below). The fuse doesn't work (meaning it does not conduct electricity) ... which of course is logical since my soldering station has a minimum temperature of 200 °C (392 °F) (althoug...

How to design a transformer-coupled front end for ADC converters

The design of a high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) system with a high input frequency (IF) has always proven to be a challenging task. The use of transformers makes this task more difficult because transformers are inherently non-linear, and these non-linear characteristics can make perfor...
