Transients are sudden high-frequency overvoltages that can destroy a chip. A silicon Transient Voltage Suppressor (TVS) is a circuit protection component that either attenuates (reduces) or filters a transient voltage spike (overvoltage), thus protecting your circuit. Another type of TVS diverts a voltage spike away from your circuit (also known as shunting, clamping, or bypassing.) […]
Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced new enhancements to its field programmable gate array (FPGA)-based deterministic multi-axis motor control solution, with two new intellectual property (IP) offerings, a Resolver interface and a Sinc3 filter, both to support designs using resolver sensors. In addition, the company […]
