Aluminium electrolytic capacitors withstand 150°C and 80g vibration

Cornell Dubilier distributor, New Yorker, now offers the expanded range of NHR-Slimpack, high temperature, prismatic capacitors. The flat aluminium electrolytic capacitors have a 3,000-hour life at full-rated conditions. In addition to high temperatures and vibration, the capacitors have been tested for altitudes up to 80,000ft, for military, aerospace, industrial, and down-hole applications. The manufacturer has ...

Eval board with Renesas driver and GaN Systems power transistors

Power transistor maker GaN Systems has teamed up with Renesas to produce evaluation kits that demonstrate appropriate drive techniques for GaN power transistors – which have desirable switching characteristics, but tricky gate drive requirements. They are based around Renesas’ RAA226110 low-side GaN FET driver. “These cards are the industry’s first to provide programmable over-current protection with ...

Non-destructive carrier measurement in SiC power devices

Researchers at Nagoya Institute of Technology have found a way to create a 3D map of carriers inside silicon carbide power transistors without sawing them up, proposing the system as a way of improving SiC bipolar devices. The technique, which works down to 250μm and has ~10μm resolution, is ‘time-resolved free carrier absorption with inter-sectional lights ...

Intel to start volume ramp of 10nm Ice Lake Xeon in Q1

Intel says that a ‘volume ramp’ of its 10nm Ice Lake Xeon processor will take place during Q1. TSMC announced that it was starting the volume ramp of its 7nm process – generally seen as comparable to Intel’s 10nm process – in April 2018. TSMC began 5nm volume production last month. Intel does not expect ...
