­Silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs have become predominantly used power semiconductors, particularly for automotive applications. To support process development, improve manufacturing yield, and reduce sub-surface failures in finished products, engineers must understand the structure, dopant and junction profiles, an

AI Faces a Barrage of Legal Challenges

Jason Lomberg, North American Editor, PSD

­Some non-consensual images of Taylor Swift and a 1-hour comedy special from the very deceased George Carlin is bringing the dark side of artificial intelligence to the public consciousness. And this isn’t late 20th century roboapocalypse agita – for the moment, the biggest AI threat is a plethora of copyr
