The wide bandgap semiconductor Gallium Nitride (GaN) has been out of the lab and into products in some markets for almost a decade. But this is a new and exciting time for GaN as it finds its way into rapidly expanding high-speed, high-power applications like data centers, motor drives, EVs, and more. A significant player in this […]
Self-powered electronic devices that define the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have special needs that can be addressed through the judicious selection of battery chemistry. SOL JACOBS | TADIRAN BATTERIES Going ‘truly wireless’ typically necessitates the use of primary (non-rechargeable) or rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Besides untethering applications from ac lines, use of rechargeable batteries […]
ROHM has recently announced the availability of a buck DC/DC converter optimized for DC fan motor power supplies used in applications such as cold air circulation in refrigerators. In recent years, ‘Smarter’, ‘Smaller’, and ‘Higher Efficiency’ have emerged as the 3 biggest challenges facing the electronics industry, which is experiencing increased market demand. In addition, […]
Adapted from 3D Printing Technologies for Prototyping and Production, How to Leverage Additive Manufacturing to Build Better Products Unlike the blueprints, product rendering, and 3D models architects use long before building begins, product development is different. Today’s products are designed to be manufactured in thousands or hundreds of thousands, and both parts and assembled products […]
Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LTC2358-18, an 18-bit, 8-channel simultaneous sampling successive approximation register (SAR) ADC featuring integrated picoamp input buffers. With board real estate at a premium, the LTC2358-18 brings substantial space and cost savings by eliminating front end signal conditioning circuitry normally required to drive unbuffered switched-capacitor […]
