How to solve SWaP-C challenges with 270 V input applications

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 16 August, 2017

Defence applications with 270 VDC input must meet stringent EMI, environmental and power-related standards such as MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-704. The design process is further complicated by SWaP-C requirements.


Advanced GaN technology revolutionises power switching

Supplied by Mouser Electronics on 07 August, 2017

Viable power-switching devices based on gallium nitride (GaN) technology have turned the corner — and there’s no going back. They offer greater efficiency and power-handling performance compared to their well-established, widely available silicon MOSFET counterparts.


New technology revolutionises satellite and airborne imagery

Supplied by National Instruments Australia Pty Ltd on 20 July, 2017

This case study examines a suite that produces cost-effective imagery at a scale and resolution previously unseen. Innovative computer-vision and photogrammetry techniques help to create cutting-edge 3D models, aerial photographs and elevation data.


Your definitive guide to EMC and power supply

Supplied by RECOM Asia Pte Ltd on 19 July, 2017

Understand the basics of EMC and apply this knowledge to your power supply.


New generation DC-DC regulators enable advanced automotive electronics

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 19 May, 2017

The number and variety of automobile electronics and accessories is growing, fuelling the need for more advanced power components to support these electronics. These systems rely on multiple battery chemistries and can operate at different voltages.


Next-gen LED devices propel lighting to the next level

Supplied by Mouser Electronics on 11 May, 2017

With the ability to illuminate large areas, either indoors or outdoors, lighting engineers and designers are increasingly directing their attention towards the quality and controllability of the illumination.


How wireless technology enables next-gen audio designs

Supplied by Mouser Electronics on 03 May, 2017

The demand for high-fidelity audio continues to drive sound engineers for 32-bit audio solutions with higher frequency response, higher resolutions and greater signal purity. Much can be learnt from these next-gen designs.


How to effectively connect IGBT power modules in parallel

Supplied by Semikron Pty Ltd on 19 April, 2017

Learn about the causes that can be attributed to an asymmetrical current distribution. Discover the influence of the driver concept used (individual or central driver) as well as the impedances contained in a system.


Your guide to building a test system — switching and multiplexing

Supplied by National Instruments Australia Pty Ltd on 07 April, 2017

Understand the fundamentals of switching and multiplexing to build a smarter test system that can address your needs today and in the future.


Power your microprocessor directly from 48 V

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 05 April, 2017

This novel solution enables high voltage low current to be distributed throughout a system, minimising distribution losses, while providing low voltage high current direct from the 48 V input in the most efficient manner possible.


Which is better to protect your PCB — coating or resin?

Supplied by Electrolube on 08 March, 2017

The design of the PCB, the housing and the anticipated end-use environment all play a major factor in the decision whether to use a coating or a resin.


A breakthrough in AC front end power factor correction

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 27 February, 2017

Power Factor Corrected AC rectification has been addressed in a variety of ways over the past three decades. The wide variation of worldwide AC line voltages, however, has imposed significant design trade-offs.


How to determine the TCO of your embedded system

Supplied by Renesas Electronics Singapore Pte Ltd on 14 February, 2017

Traditional TCO metrics for embedded systems are now worthless. For an accurate idea of lifetime costs it is now essential to factor in the fast-changing IoT landscape.


Hard switching solution for moderate to high switching environments

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 20 January, 2017

New compact solutions for device packaging, silicon integration and MOSFET technology work well with over a narrow voltage range. Efficiency and throughput power tends to drop off dramatically, however, over a moderate to high input range.


Will self-driving cars guarantee your safety?

Supplied by Mouser Electronics on 20 January, 2017

Smart cars continue to expand autonomous driving tasks that assist or even outright outperform humans. However, the question remains: Are system architects ensuring that there is an appropriate allocation of responsibility, visibility, and capability for emergency handling between driver and electronic control systems?
