Researchers have developed a highly sensitive rectifying element in the form of a nanowire backward diode, which can convert low-power microwaves into electricity.
The WE-TVS diodes are characterised by their short response time and a low terminal voltage, and feature a high ESD dielectric strength with a contact discharge of up to ±30 kV.
ITO alternatives (TCFs) are no longer a young technology — so why has the commercialisation process been prolonged for so long?
The MADP-009989 diode from MACOM Technology Solutions was designed to protect MRI receivers from high RF energy fields, including long RF pulses and RF spike pulses present in most MRI machines.
A new magnetic material addresses two of the chief complaints surrounding battery-operated electronics: short battery life and too much heat generation.
The Hioki FT4310 bypass diode tester can be used safely in broad daylight, detecting open and short-circuited bypass diodes, as well as measuring cell string losses.
The latest miniature (size 0201) single-line ESD-protection diodes from STMicroelectronics quickly clamp transients to a voltage as low as 7 V, and handle 7 A peak pulse current, to provide good protection and design flexibility for space-constrained smart objects.
A full range of 2–40 A 1200 V silicon-carbide (SiC) JBS (junction barrier Schottky) diodes from STMicroelectronics enables a range of applications to benefit from the high switching efficiency, fast recovery and consistent temperature characteristics of SiC technology.
