Electrically-powered UAVs are increasingly popular for many applications – but how can they best be kept aloft and functional? This article reviews the electric power sourcing options available to UAV designers, and underlines the importance of effective power systems design.
Realtek has adopted an electromagnetic (EM) simulation workflow developed by Ansys to accelerate complex RFIC design and improve efficiency by shrinking silicon area. Realtek uses RaptorH’s silicon-optimized modeling flow to substantially decrease simulation time and reduce wasteful overdesign by accurately predicting EM coupling in various applications.
ROHM CO., LTD. and ROHM Wako CO., LTD. have announced to build a new production facility at its manufacturing subsidiary in Malaysia to increase production capacity of analog LSIs and transistors due to growing demands.
In new research from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists have found interesting chemical behavior of one of the battery’s two terminals as the battery is charged and discharged.
They are small, powerful, and extremely efficient: semiconductors made of silicon carbide (SiC). After several years of development, Bosch is now starting volume production of power semiconductors made of this innovative material, supplying automotive manufacturers worldwide. In the future, more and more production vehicles will feature these chips.
Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the backbone of modern electronics. Everything from smartphones to cars wouldn’t work without a functioning PCB, so designing one is sensitive work. Here’s a closer look at what’s involved.
TDK has developed a process in which ultrasonic waves are used to transmit data and energy. These signals can even penetrate metal. This enables devices to be identified or sensor data to be read out, whereby the energy transmission is simultaneously possible in closed metal chambers or pipes, for example.
Following the announcement made by Bavarian Prime Minister Dr. Markus Söder in a press conference, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH is canceling the SPS - Smart Production Solutions, which was scheduled to take place in Nuremberg from November 23 - 25, 2021.
Swiss electricity generation has a very low carbon footprint. However, this is often not the case for imports. Researchers from the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Automation, led by Empa researcher Loris di Natale, investigated how electric cars could help reduce the need for energy imports from fossil fuels.
TSMC and Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (SSS) jointly announced that TSMC will establish a subsidiary, Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing, Inc. (JASM), in Kumamoto, Japan to provide foundry service with initial technology of 22/28-nanometer processes to address strong global market demand for specialty technologies, with SSS participating as a minority shareholder.
