Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, has announced the latest stage of its global growth strategy, confirming a $700 million investment over the next 12-15 months at its European wafer fabs, assembly factories in Asia and global R&D sites.
From June 22 to 24, 2021, EBV Elektronik, a semiconductor specialist, will host its second Power Fair with the theme "Robotics - outside of the box". The three-day event offers a comprehensive program with numerous players from the electronics industry.
In the solid state transformers with medium voltage SiC-Devices, it is possible to achieve very high efficiency, although designing a sufficiently high switching frequency in order reduce filter elements, volume and mass of the transformer.
SweGaN AB, the University of Bristol, and the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, have partnered up on a project that will seek to design and manufacture new GaN-based devices that will be launched into outer space.
A reed relay combines a reed switch with a coil into one package to serve as a smaller, more power-efficient alternative to other types of relays. These relays are well suited for use in automated test equipment, security, medical, and process control equipment. Options for customization are available.
The IoT, and now 5G, has accelerated the growth of mobile electronic devices including smartphones and smartwatches. However, these devices’ performance is always limited by that of their batteries and charging circuits. This article looks at how modern charging circuits address the diverse power challenges of high-performance 5G smartphones and of wearables.
SPDs need to be sized correctly. If they are sized too low, the system could be susceptible to temporary overvoltages. It can also decrease the SPD life expectancy. If they are sized too high, it could be damaging to equipment.
