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.
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.
TWI has recently invented a new technique, derived from friction stir channelling called CoreFlow that allows for sub-surface networks of channels to be machined within monolithic metallic parts in a single step.
Seddik Bacha, Scientific Director and Scientific Committee Chair of the Supergrid Architecture & Systems research program at the SuperGrid Institute, delivered a keynote address on HVDC grid challenges and opportunities at PCIM Digital Days 2021.
To improve efficiency in modern cars and achieve true electromobility, power density must increase without inhibiting performance and reliability. In a keynote on May 5th, Hannes Stahr of AT&S discusses how high-efficiency power packaging could help achieve this.
Variable speed drives are widely used in industry and infrastructure applications and play a crucial role in regulating current in motor-based systems such as heating, ventilation, and cooling. In a bid to solve efficiency problems, researchers are turning to SiC/GaN to boost performance.
In groundbreaking research, scientists from two Swedish research institutions have managed to build a structural battery that yields experimental results ten times better than anything we’ve seen before.
