Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced two new digitally controlled DC/DC converter reference designs with advanced, high-efficiency topologies. DC/DC converter designers are faced with a number of challenges to optimize a set of contrasting requirements in the design process...
Check-in, tag, and venues are just a few key words that you’ll need to know to use Facebook’s new feature, Places. This feature allows users to update where they are and what they are doing...
Will enhancement mode GaN transistors (eGaN) replace power MOSFET/IGBTs in power management applications? Alex Lidow, CEO of Efficient Power Conversion, believes it will and will explain why at Darnell’s Power Forum ’10.
Everyone in the power supply community wants to know power implications of the Smart Grid, but not much has been agreed upon. Darnell’s Power Forum ’10 will bring some clarity to this question with a session on “Enabling the Smart Grid”.
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Nanoscale simulations and theoretical research performed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are bringing scientists closer to realizing graphene's potential in electronic applications.
Dell’Oro posted some research on the femtocell market — from 1 million units shipped this year to 62 million by 2014, according to Dell’Oro Group’s five-year forecast.
Portable and battery-powered applications are continually driven to increase battery life and reduce size. Analog circuitry and ultra-low-power microcontrollers (MCU) often reside on the same circuit board, each having their own particular power requirements.
(American Physical Society) A new way to manipulate magnetic fields with electrical signals could lead to microelectronic advances comparable to those that made high density disk drives possible.
Connect Tech and congatec announced today that Connect Tech has based the design of its latest PCI/104-Express Single Board Computer on congatec's Qseven modules. The new carrier board supports the PCI/104-Express form factor...
