Aerco is now stocking TE Connectivity (TE)’s DEUTSCH MIL-DTL-38999 series next generation ACT composite connectors which deliver up to 40 percent weight savings over similar aluminum devices. TE’s DEUTSCH group created one of the original composites in 1990, and its ACT series shells are not only very lightweight,
IXYS is a global pioneer in the power semiconductor and integrated circuit markets with a focus on medium to high voltage power control semiconductors across theindustrial, communications, consumer and medical markets. IXYS has a broad customer base, serving more than 3,500 customers through its direct salesforce
Wolfspeed, a Cree company, has extended its family of 50V unmatched GaN HEMT RF power devices by adding a 250W part with a frequency range up to 3.0GHz and the highest efficiency of any comparably-rated GaN device available, enabling RF design engineers to use fewer components to design smaller and lighter linear

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology (IISB), Erlangen, is using Isabellenhütte’s shunt-based management system IVT-S for precision current measurement in battery management systems in its foxBMS development platform.
The Isabellenhütte IVT series offers
Turnersville, NJ - CDM Electronics announced the availability of TopFlite Components' extensive portfolio of commercial-grade, military-equivalent backshells and adapters, protective covers, connector accessories, harsh
When Li-ion batteries age, their performance drops. Current methods still require complex instrumented laboratory-based tests to determine how quickly and to which degree this occurs. In contrast, a procedure developed by Chemnitz University of Technology now enables quick and precise diagnosis. It ensures the
Linear Regulators are integrated circuits that step a voltage down from a higher voltage to a lower voltage without the need of an inductor. The low dropout linear regulator (LDO) is a special type of linear regulator in which the dropout voltage – the differential between the input-to-output voltages needed
In this episode of the PSDCast, we’re talking to Doble Engineering about space weather — more specifically, protecting transformers from geomagnetically-induced currents triggered by solar storms

It was my distinct pleasure to chair a podium session at PCIM in Nuremburg Germany in May. The subject of the session was enabling next generation
In response to pressures to optimise energy efficiency throughout industry, a number of trends are emerging across the power landscape:
· In the automotive sector, we are seeing increased electrification of the power train and the growing adoption of hybrid, electric, plug-in
Figure 1. Extending the frequency and voltage range of a probe requires a front-end network of resistors and capacitors.
Low-power circuits combine high speed and low-power consumption in a single component, presenting a number of probing and testing challenges. Since many low-power devices are also high-speed systems, there is a need to test and verify their performance. Testing the low-power components for compliance with industry
Figure 1. Power rail voltages and tolerances required by ICs continue to decrease. These dynamics challenge traditional oscilloscope measurement approaches as the noise of the scope and probe system impairs the ability to make accurate measurements of small signals.
Development teams face increasing power integrity challenges. FPGAs, ASICs, and standard components semiconductor devices continue to increase in gate count. Each of the millions of gates on an integrated circuit requires current to switch. As devices can consume tens of amps and total power must be managed,
MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduced a new magnetic position sensor that delivers accuracy comparable to Hall effect devices while offering higher reliability and better durability. The one-time programmable (OTP) Vishay Sfernice RAME027 provides
In a world where many people would rather discharge shotguns at UAVs flying anywhere near their property than tolerate a drone delivery service, it’s hardly surprising that drone defense is a hot topic. So a comprehensive evaluation of some of the most ingenious (and hyperbolic) anti-drone devices was in order.
MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduced the industry's first surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) for high frequency RF and microwave applications to offer an operating temperature range to +200 °C. For telecom base stations and military communication systems, the Vishay

Along with the upgrading of traditional manufacturing and increasing input in industrial automation, traditional industries such as industrial control and communication industries increase their demand for medium-power
David Wetz, associate professor of electrical engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington, is studying energy storage for the US Navy.
There is a continuing effort by the U.S. Navy to integrate energy storage throughout their fleet of vessels.
Many batteries may be used to supply high power to intermittently operated loads and it is important to have a way to test how those batteries will perform under operational conditions before
