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.
This article presents a novel current source gate driver for SiC MOSFETs improving controllability of turn-on/off delays, di/dt and dv/dt compared to conventional totem-pole voltage source gate drivers.
There’s a huge buzz surrounding perovskite solar cells (PSC), or ‘perovskites’. Referred to by many as the next generation of solar photovoltaic technology, they promise to bring impressive gains in terms of cost, stability, and efficiency.
Wind and solar power are bringing about a clean energy revolution. Here is everything that you need to know about renewable energy, the different types, and the advantages and challenges of it, plus a look to the future.
Many PCB design software packages are available, ranging from software that can be downloaded for free to high end tool suites costing tens of thousands of dollars. But which is best for your application? This article first looks at what is involved in PCB design, and then suggests some approaches you could use to find the right package for your project.
General Motors plans to pursue an aggressive electric vehicle expansion strategy over the next decade, with an ultimate aim of eliminating petrol and diesel emissions from light-duty vehicles by 2035 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2040.
As OEMs solidify their commitment to reduce their carbon footprint, their focus is on electric cars which reduce carbon emissions, cut oil use, and provide an improved driving experience. Alongside vehicle development is significant advancements in battery R&D, vehicle-to-grid connectivity, and wireless charging.
As the most critical part of an electric car, vehicle batteries are guaranteed to last at least 100,000 miles (160,000 kilometers) on average before they no longer hold enough of a charge and have to be replaced. Here’s what happens to many of them.
While security is front of mind when it comes to connected and autonomous vehicles, little consideration is given to security the risks associated with electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Research demonstrates that EV charging stations can be a conduit for DDoS attacks, ransomware, theft of ID, and could jeopardize the security of the power grid.
