Addressing Differential and Common Mode Noise With Innovative Dual-Mode Choke Technology

CMF Series Dual Mode Chokes

Circuit designers must deal with many types of noise: internal, external, RF, line frequency and more. Noise can be a limiting factor in system performance and so must be addressed and minimized. The question is “at what cost and effort?”  Is it better to sacrifice performance or cost?  In either

The “Energiewende” (energy transition) has resulted in a shift in thinking not only about the generation of electrical energy, but its distribution and consumption as well. Efficient approaches are needed for energy production and transfer on the one hand, and consumption on the other. What plays a role

Today’s industrial applications demand power supplies capable of delivering ever-higher levels of power density. That trend is escalating as regulatory agencies around the world impose new regulations to achieve higher efficiency, not only at full load, but also in standby mode and across the entire load spectrum.

When I started working with eGaN FETs almost six years ago, I had no idea what to expect from this technology. We had our first preliminary datasheet and even though I had no idea what to expect, it was obvious that, on paper, these devices were much better than your typical MOSFETs – already beyond the theoretical

A good insurance plan is not just good to know about, in many aspects of daily life it is indispensable. In the case of Class X and Class Y capacitors, they are required to function reliably in all parts of mains-connected electrical devices, as they offer a form of insurance — we expect them to protect things

Characterizing the latest generation of wide-bandgap power semiconductor devices fully demands making the various measurements while the device is in its on-state, its off-state, and while it’s transitioning from one state to another. Although capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurements are increasingly important

Motors are everywhere in our world, it seems. Consider our vehicles, for example. When is the last time you had to hand-crank a car window up and down to pay a highway toll? Or, for that matter, when did you last manually adjust the seat position or rear-view mirror angles? Typically, motors drive all of these
