­Low-Noise Switching Regulation for Low Frequencies

Frederik Dostal, Subject Matter Expert, Power Management, Analog Devices

  Switching regulators are the most efficient way of performing power conversion, but they have one large drawback, and that is that they tend to introduce conducted and radiated electromagnetic interference (EMI) into the circuit. This problem becomes acute as systems with sensitive signal paths are used

New Analog Chip Architecture Features high precision

Memristors could now be accurate enough to process AI

  Analog electronics is often the forgotten part of electronics. Of course the discipline is very important to the industry as it is how we interface the real world to the digital world. However, in many applications, the first component in systems after the sensor is the analog to digital converter whic

­Capacitors May Replace Transistors for AI Processing

PRINCETON Researchers have totally reimagined the physics of computing to build a chip for modern ai workloads, and with newUS Government backing they will see how fast, compact and power-efficient this chip can get. An early prototype is pictured above.

  There’s no doubt that AI will be the next big thing in technology, if it isn’t already. Most large AI installations are powered by basically the same GPUs (graphical processing units) that are found in gaming PCs. That demand has seen leading GPU supplier Nvidia’s value explode to become only th

Infineon Launches Second Generation CoolSiC Family

The CoolSiC Second Generation Roadmap

  The launch follows the company’s first generation of CoolSiC devices that were originally released in 2017. That first generation of devices proved popular with designers, offering reliability, ruggedness and ease of control through the company’s driver ICs. The range of SiC MOSFETs expanded to become a

­Qorvo Enters the SiC Module Market at APEC

Qorvo has launched four modules featuring its SiC cascode technology.

  Wide-bandgap materials have revolutionized the power industry over the past few years. However, that remarkable market penetration could have been a lot deeper if the components were easier to design into products. Initially driving them was an issue, as power designers were not used to dealing with the
