Advanced Power Electronics Corp. has introduced the new AP4034 family of 30V N-channel enhancement-mode power MOSFETs in several popular package alternatives to meet differing cost/performance points. All the AP4034 MOSFETs provide fast switching performance and feature a low typical gate charge of 15nC for good switching performance.
Everyone has struggled to plug a device into a USB port at one time or another. There’s a 50/50 chance of choosing the correct orientation, and we usually manage to pick the wrong one every time. It’s the electronic version of the “toast always lands butter-side down” or “a cat always lands on its feet” phenomena, and we just want to charge our iPods.
To technology insiders, graphene is a certified big deal. The one-atom thick carbon-based material elicits rhapsodic descriptions as the strongest, thinnest material known. It also is light, flexible, and able to conduct electricity as well as copper. Graphene-based electronics promise advances such as faster internet speeds...
Crouzet Switches sealed V5 sub-subminiature microswitches are ideal in applications where compact size and high sealing levels are needed. They include: IP 67/IP 69K protection, extra-long overtravel 2mm (0.08in), compact size, multidirectional actuation at angles up to 45°...
Aitech Defense Systems released a 3U VPX GPGPU that combines exceptional processing and high data throughput with a rugged design for C4ISR and advanced sensor processing. The C530 carries the latest industry-standard MXM modules with the ability to
Scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Sandia National Laboratories have added something new to a family of engineered, high-tech materials called metal-organic frameworks (MOFs): the ability to conduct electricity.
Vishay Intertechnology extended its offering of TrenchFET p-channel Gen III power MOSFETs with the industry's first -20 V device in the 2.4 mm by 2.0 mm by 0.4 mm CSP MICRO FOOT package size. Designed to increase efficiency and save space in mobile computing devices, the Vishay Siliconix Si8851EDB offers extremely low on-resistance....
Hard-to-predict sudden changes to Earth's environment are more worrisome than climate change's bigger but more gradual impacts, a panel of scientists advising the federal government concluded Tuesday. The 200-page report by the National Academy of Sciences looked at warming problems that can occur in years instead of centuries.
The Information Age will get a major upgrade with the arrival of quantum processors many times faster and more powerful than today’s supercomputers. For the benefits of this new Information Age 2.0 to be fully realized, however, quantum computers will need fast and efficient multi-directional light sources.
Microscopy, being relatively easy to perform at low cost, is the universal diagnostic method for detection of most globally important parasitic infections. Methods developed in well-equipped laboratories are, however, difficult to maintain at the basic levels of the health care system due to lack of adequately trained personnel and resources.
The government will set up a public-private initiative to support small and medium-sized businesses expand into Association of Southeast Asian Nations markets, a Japan-ASEAN diplomatic source said Friday.The launch of the initiative, at a time Japan is seeking to counter China's growing presence in the ASEAN region...
Fairchild Semiconductor introduces a series of 1200 V field stop trench IGBTs. Targeting hard-switching industrial applications such as solar inverters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and welders, this new IGBT series will help power engineers achieve better efficiency and reliability in their designs.
Bourns, Inc. announced the addition of 3D, SPICE model, S-Parameter and LTspice files to the company’s website. Beneficial for circuit modeling and to simulate device performance, the company offers its 3D model files in IGS and STP formats, SPICE Model files
Crystek's CVCO25CL-0902-0928 VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) operates from 902 MHz to 928 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5V~3.5V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -108 dBc/Hz @ 10KHz offset and has excellent linearity.
Melexis has announced a further addition to its customer programmable TriaxisHall effect sensor IC portfolio. Targeted predominantly at use in electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and renewable energy systems, the high speed devices in the MLX91208 series each offer a response time of just 3μs.
