Although silicon is the most widely used semiconductor in electronics, recent studies show that it has some limitations, especially in high-power applications. Bandwidth is an important factor for semiconductor-based circuits, as high bandwidth offers advantages in terms of operation at high temperatures, voltages and frequencies.

SSR chip.

Texas Instruments recently introduced a new portfolio of solid state relays, including insulated drivers and car-qualified switches that provide industry-leading reliability to make electric vehicles safer.

In this paper, we analyze the static and dynamic behavior of some FET devices made of silicon carbide and gallium nitride. Companies are focusing on those types of components that allow the creation of high-efficiency converters and inverters. This article is a continuation of the previous one, which you can find here.

µModule Technology.

In an interview with Power Electronics News, Afshin Odabaee of ADI, Business Development Director for μModule Energy Products, and Bhakti Waghmare, Product Marketing Engineer, highlighted the latest developments and challenges in the energy industry.

During our Wine Down Friday, we talk to Dennis Riccio and Robert Rhodes, co-founders of X-trinsic, about their semiconductor careers.
