UC Berkeley developed the RISC-V instruction set as a CPU lingua franca for computer chips; an architecture used by all chipmakers and owned by nonei. Here, we look at RISC-V and some of the technology and applications it has facilitated.
Energy storage systems are essential to the operation of power systems. With the growth of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and tidal power, their importance is continuing to grow. Here’s a quick look at some of the main applications of energy storage systems.
According to a new report by Grand View Research, the global ultra-high purity silicon carbide market size is expected to reach USD 79.0 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 14.8 % from 2020 to 2027. Rising penetration of electric vehicles and growth of renewable energy sector are expected to provide growth opportunities for market players.
In early December, Transphorm announced the sampling of its first Gen V device under its proprietary SuperGaN brand, the TP65H015G5WS, which has been designed for electric vehicles and offers significantly lower power loss.
UK-based company InterGen has been given the go-ahead to deploy a new 320 MW / 640 MWh battery energy storage facility near London. The new facility will be the UK’s largest, capable of providing fast-reacting power.
At the end of what has been a disruptive year, GaN Systems has released its 2021 Technology Predictions in Power Electronics Report, a detailed look at how GaN power technology will itself disrupt the power electronics market in 2021.
Modern power electronics systems typically involve sophisticated designs while being critical to the reliability and safety of their target environments. Due to their internal components’ complex interactions and behaviors, simulation is often the only way to predict their performance.*
ABI Research's 2021 Trend Report identifies the one key Location Technology market trend that will deliver in 2021 - and the one that will not. In addition, the global technology market consultancy forecasts that 300 million ultra-wideband devices will be shipped in 2021.
STMicroelectronics has released a new generation of high-voltage AC/DC converter technology. Part of the VIPer series, it enables the design of fully protected and highly reliable power supplies that are suited to applications like AC-DC adapters for laptops.
Researchers at Stanford University in California, USA, say that they have developed a new perovskite solar cell manufacturing process that is both cheaper and four times faster than traditional manufacturing methods.
