The roots of the APEC conference go back to 1975, when a private company put on POWERCON, a show dedicated to the working engineer. When that show ended in 1984, it was replaced by a hodgepodge of tech conferences, but few dedicated to...
The Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) is now considered the leading conference for power electronics. Through technical sessions, plenary talks, and a large exhibit floor, a wide range of industry topics are addressed. These include...
Infineon Technologies, the largest player in the power semiconductor space, has introduced its latest generation of power MOSFETs. The company has started selling the first devices based on its OptiMOS 6 technology, designed for...
Careful attention to all aspects of system design needs to be paid to optimize for capital costs, operational costs, and ease of design and construction.
With a fluoride-based electrolyte that’s liquid at room temperature, along with suitable electrodes, researchers hope to exploit the high energy-storage potential of this otherwise challenging element for a better rechargeable battery.
These 100-V MOSFET/IGBT gate drivers with differing current source/sink ratings use junction isolation and level shifting to support 200-V bootstrapped half-bridge configurations.
Single-chip power-supply controller IC combines analog circuits with an embedded MCU that employs 35 instructions and controls registers to store performance data.
A 48V to 1V, 200A Hybrid Switching topology supplies present and future microprocessor power requirements along with the ability to handle fast load transients in a single module.
SiC and GaN semiconductors are vying for use in automotive and industrial applications with performance superior to current silicon technology.
The ST1PS01 meets the needs of harvesting and battery-supplied applications, delivering up to 400 mA, while allowing users to dynamically select one of four output voltages via two digital control lines.
