Rocket Science is based upon math and science principles. Newton's Laws of Motion and the forces on a rocket are critical to the successful launch of any spacecraft.
Designing GaNFast Mobile Chargers
Gene Sheridan 10/19/2017 Post a comment
GaN power ICs are fast, very fast, and high switching frequencies means more power and faster charging in smaller & lighter weight footprints and outlines. But which architecture is best suited to take advantage of such a fast power device?

In an era of collapsing economies, waning affluence, and too much garbage amid scarcity, a characteristic that is part of the engineering character - resourcefulness - is due to come back in vogue, as we are challenged to optimize the use of limited resources.
Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
In the not too distant past, if you were seen holding a conversation with a household appliance, you might have run the risk of being committed.
The voltage regulator is a very important part of the power management and the placement of voltage regulator plays an important role in improving the performance.
