New high-performance elastomer sockets for 0.4-mm pitch BGA packages are designed for a 12×12-mm package size and operate at bandwidths up to 65 GHz with less than 1 dB of insertion loss (GSSG configuration). Developed by Ironwood Electronics, the SG25-BGA-2032 socket has a contact resistance of typically 20 mΩ/pin. Network analyzer reflection measurements for the […]
Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF says it has developed the world’s first 600-V half-bridge circuit monolithically integrated on one chip. Fraunhofer used gallium nitride (GaN) to do the job. The half-bridge circuit comprises two GaN high-electron mobility transistors (HEMT) and two integrated freewheeling diodes. The HEMTs have a breakdown voltage of […]
The CS448 isolated-channel oscilloscope provides four isolated analog channels and eight digital channels. Developed by Cleverscope, it includes a 0-65-MHz isolated signal generator, USB 3, a 1-Gbit Ethernet port using an SFP socket for either wired or optical ethernet connection, and a general-purpose 16-pin mixed-signal control port using programmable hardware (a Silego SLG46533V) which includes […]
