Cambridge GaN Devices Launches Project to cut Global Data Center Emissions

Dr Giorgia Longobardi, CEO and founder of Cambridge GaN Devices

Fabless semiconductor company Cambridge GaN Devices Ltd. (CGD) has launched ICeData, a project aiming to develop and commercialise a highly efficient Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based IC (integrated circuit) for use in data centre server power supplies. The primary goal of the ICeData project is to deliver state-o

Figure 1: Real-time data in the global ‘datasphere’ will reach 51 zettabytes by 2025

It is estimated that by 2025 the annual size of real-time data in the global ‘datasphere’ will have increased tenfold from the level in 2018, reaching a total of 51 zettabytes. Indeed, driven in part by the pandemic, global internet traffic grew by around 35% in 2020 as a result of rapid uptake of video st

Figure 1: Voltage distributes equally across inductor turns

Yes, voltage ratings for inductors. The popularity of molded composite core inductors has placed new emphasis on voltage ratings to ensure safe and reliable inductor operation. Molded-core inductors place the core material in direct contact with the windings, changing the way inductor windings are insulated. New circuit
