GaN is a promising substrate for future development of sets of possible applications for the electronics technology. The semiconductor market is focusing on the possibility of combining GaN with other types of substrates to obtain an enhancement of performance in many industry segments such as shown in the following Figure 1:
The trend for communications infrastructures is to have an extremely high data rate and a latency near as much as possible to zero, the 5G protocol in particular requires a substrate able to work at high frequencies to ensure to reach this goal. The answer to this question could be the GaN material, utilized as substrate to realize electronic integrated ...

imec recently announced what it claims is the world's first CMOS 140GHz radar-on-chip system with integrated antennas in standard 28nm technology. This kind of advanced semiconductor technology is critical in the development of radar-based sensors for so many kinds of applications, some of which are building security, remote health monitoring of car ...
Continuing the chat from last time, we turn now to a circuit-related topic, that of current waveforms. The typical converter input waveform is shown with a static (dc) component and a ripple (ac) component.

The air-polluting, carbon emitting standard liquid fuel combustion engine vehicles have an audible engine sound, even when traveling at low speeds. Pedestrians and other vehicle drivers recognize a moving vehicle via sight and sound coming from tires and other emitted noise when the vehicle may be out of sight.
Semiconductor companies have now had fully-differential amplifiers in their product lines for a few years, though these amplifiers have been in leading-edge electronics for decades. These diff-amps are differential not only at their input but also at their output, doubling output range. Their input and output ports have closed paths without a common ...
