5000 Watt TVS provides high energy transient protection

Central Semiconductor's 5SMC Series of 5000 Watt transient voltage suppressors are designed to protect voltage sensitive components from high energy transients. Stand-off voltages range from 33V to 170V, ideal for inductive load switching, lightning protection, and telecommunication data line applications. The glass passivated junction improves energy efficiency by reducing leakage current.

8-bit Rp, 24-bit L Inductance-to-Digital Converter with SPI

Texas Instruments

Inductive sensing is a contactless, short-range sensing technology enabling high-resolution and low-cost position sensing of conductive targets, even in harsh environments. Using a coil or spring as a sensor, the LDC1041 inductance-to-digital converter ((8-bit Rp/24-bit L) provides system designers a way to achieve high performance and reliability at a lower system cost than other competing solutions

Which One Rocks – AC or DC?

In the old war of currents between Edison and Tesla, Tesla’s alternating current proved to be the winner in grid distribution. We wonder if it will prevail when it comes to local and regional distribution. The new distribution extends deeper than the power grid; it goes down into the hearts of datacenters and high performance computing.
