This blog series describes the utilization of GaN as a substrate for integrated circuits, utilized for 5G high frequency applications, to improve the efficiency of power amplifiers in 5G infrastructures
Current Shunt Resistor Inductance: It Matters
Jerry Steele  
8/16/2018   2 comments
In high frequency switched systems where you measure current with a shunt, you may observe problems such as excessive amplitude on sine wave current ripple, overshoots on square wave ripple or any rapid transition of current, or excessive high-frequency noise. These problems are due to current shunt inductance, which becomes more significant at lower values of shunt resistors

I think that ROBORACE is one of the most intriguing Motorsports I have ever seen for advancing the technology necessary for safe and practical electric vehicles. Its uniqueness is in the fact that their race cars are driverless as well as being electric.
Extracting Loop Gain and Phase Information from Simulation
Michael Steffes  
8/9/2018   5 comments
Modern high-speed op amps and Fully Differential Amplifiers (FDAs) push the limits in every direction to deliver the best harmonic distortion at the lowest quiescent power. This often leads to relatively low phase margin designs in what would normally appear to be benign application circuits.
Designing Drivers for Piezoelectric Motors
Rudy Ramos  
8/8/2018   1 comment
Piezoelectric motors are increasingly popular for linear motion, but the design of the accompanying drivers is very different from those used by traditional electromagnetic motors.
Magnetics Design Chat: Part 1, Optimal Design of Magnetics Components
Dennis Feucht

One of the seemingly most difficult aspects of power electronics is how to design power inductors and transformers.
Silicon Carbide Leads the Wide Band-Gap Revolution
Dr. Zhongda Li  
8/6/2018   Post a comment
Wide band-gap semiconductors such as GaN and SiC offer significant advantages over conventional silicon devices, for performance-critical power-conversion applications. Cost-effective, proven SiC products are on the market now, and ready to drop in as a straightforward upgrade

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.
