The future of mobility will be carbon-neutral, autonomous, fully connected and cyber secure. Microelectronics are at the core of this transformation. Infineon Technologies AG launches a new generation of its AURIX microcontroller family (MCU).
In this series of articles, we will explain the inherent architectural benefits of CTSD ADCs and how they are adapted to a wide range of precision medium bandwidth applications. We will take a deep dive into signal chain design to educate designers on the key advantages of CTSD technology and explore the AD4134 precision ADC’s ease of design features.
Pattern Energy Group LP announced it has completed construction and begun commercial operation of its suite of Western Spirit Wind power projects. Western Spirit Wind is comprised of four wind power facilities totaling more than 1,050 MW located in Guadalupe, Lincoln, and Torrance Counties in central New Mexico.
The high-voltage battery is located centrally in the drive and literally in the middle of the Audi RS Q e-tron. It embodies the heart of the innovative electric drive with energy converter. Audi intends to use it to set the next milestone in the world’s toughest rally and prove “Vorsprung durch Technik” (free translation: head start through technology) in the desert as well.
Effective January 1, 2022, Dr. Markus Heyn, as chairman of the Mobility Solutions business sector, will assume Harald Kroeger’s responsibilities. The supervisory board and board of management thank Harald Kroeger for his outstanding contributions to developing future foundational technologies and for his decisive impact in shaping the Mobility Solutions business sector.
Although Covid’s impact on power electronics markets has continued into 2021, it has not all been negative. While car makers have suffered from chip shortages, the trend to EVs has accelerated. Personal electronics sales have also grown sharply. Overall, growth is forecast for the sector.
Threshold hysteresis is needed to obtain a smooth and chatter-free lockout function even in the presence of supply noise or resistance. After discussing a simple UVLO/OVLO circuit, this article will present some simple methods for adding threshold hysteresis, which is necessary when the default value is insufficient.
The World Climate Conference in Glasgow has just ended, and the question is whether the goal of maximum global heating of 1.5 °C can still be achieved. In a model calculation, Empa researchers show how the energy transition could lead to the lowest possible cumulative emissions: Instead of slowly cutting back emissions, we should quickly push ahead with the conversion to solar energy and use fossil power plants at full capacity for one last time to do so.
