Infineon Technologies continues to improve IGBT performance with the release of their S5 (S for soft) family. It is based on the ultra-thin wafer TRENCHSTOP 5 IGBT. This family has been developed specifically for AC-DC energy conversion in industrial applications switching up to 40 kHz, typically to be found

When the first generation of silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky diodes was introduced more than 10 years ago, their widespread adoption was somewhat challenged by unforeseen dV/dt limitations within certain manufacturers’ devices. In particular, devices with lower dV/dt capability were susceptible to failure from

Despite the development of ultralow power integrated devices, the overall demand for power at a system level is only increasing. At the same time, OEMs remain under pressure to make their end-applications physically smaller, which continues to drive demand for smaller and more efficient power supplies. While

As modern power converters move towards higher efficiency, it is essential to have better models for all of the loss mechanisms in your components. In the first part of this article, we talked about the need for a single continuous equation to match the empirically measured losses. In this second part, the effect

Flexible sensors: an expanding market

Guillaume Chansin, IDTechEx

Large investments have been made to enable flexible, thin sensors rather than rigid sensors. $75 million was recently awarded by the US Department of Defense to establish a new Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) for flexible hybrid electronics in San Jose, California. Under the acronym FHE MII, this new
