After discussions with exhibitors and partners at the beginning of February, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH has initially decided to postpone PCIM Europe to late summer. In light of the ongoing pandemic and challenging situation, numerous industry players have been hesitant to commit to an on-site event. Therefore, it was decided to hold a digital event only.
Power over Ethernet has long been popular for connecting network devices, as it eliminates the power cable connection. But how has PoE kept pace with the ever more power hungry devices essential to today’s networks? This article looks at the answer.
Gallium nitride (GaN) transistors are very quickly proliferating the power electronics industry and are a popular substitute in their own right for silicon-based FETs because of characteristics such as high electron mobility. In addition, GaN transistors are used in more applications such as power chargers, automobiles, and audio amplifiers.
Coventry in the UK is destined to become home to the world’s first “airport” for electric aircraft. Known as Air-One, it’s set to launch this year as a hub for aircraft including air taxis and delivery drones.
Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the future of motoring. But what types of EVs exist? How do they work and how can they be charged? What are the developments in the electric car market and how much do they cost? Learn this and more in the following article.
The german company Fischer Elektronik is now offering a newly developed fluid heatsink for the printed circuit board especially for the heat dissipation of larger power losses from electronic components. The item is designed and structured for cooling the most common power semiconductors in TO cases and many more.
Some of the world’s biggest automakers are facing a critical shortage of the semiconductors they need to build their cars. The shortage could put a complete stop to production in certain parts of the world at a time when the industry is trying to recover from the pandemic.
In December, DENSO Corporation announced that it has begun mass production of its latest model of booster power module equipped with silicon carbide power semiconductors, as part of its efforts to achieve a low-carbon society. This product is used in Toyota’s new Mirai model.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden claim that that they’ve found a way to effectively and efficiently cool down electronics and power systems by using graphene-based heat pipes, it has been announced.
