Power Integrations LQ10N200CQ and LQ20N200CQ Audio Amplifiers
Power Integrations, a leading company in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient power conversion, has announced that its new 200V Qspeed diodes are now available. The LQ10N200CQ and LQ20N200CQ diodes have the AEC-Q101 automotive qualification and are optimal for in-vehicle audio systems due to their low EMI and reduced noise output.
UK Organizations Receive Funding for Improving Energy Efficiency
Faraday, the independent institute, is allocating £55 million to projects in 4 focus areas, each set on improving EV battery technology while slashing harmful emissions. Resulting research also has the potential to positively impact other industries.
The University of Warwick Trials Cybersecurity Research Projects for Connected Autonomous Vehicles
With autonomous vehicles expected to become more and more widespread as manufacturers work hard to bring their own designs to market, the security of the connected systems that power them are a major concern for researchers.
How Solar Power Cars Work: Exploring Solar Electronics
The transport sector in Europe remains one of the most significant contributors to greenhouse gases such as CO2 and nitrogen oxides (aka NOx) from the exhaust pipes of vehicles. Thankfully, engineers are working on eco-friendly automotive solutions—and an exciting example of them are solar-powered vehicles.
The Appeal Behind Designing Low-Power Electronics
In 1947, William Shockley, alongside a team of physicists at Bell Labs, demonstrated the first practical transistor, one of the earliest efforts at low power electronic design. The transistor replaced the bulky and energy-demanding vacuum tubes used at the time and paved the way for smaller electronics with lower power consumption.
Circuit Protection Devices That Ensure the Safety and Reliability of Electrical Circuits
Every electrical engineer charged with the responsibility of designing and building electrical systems must ensure that they are reliable, safe, and durable. But sometimes, things could go awry: burnt PCBs and components, static shocks, and tripped circuit breakers are just some of the myriad technical issues that come from inadequate circuit protection.
The Major Differences in Electrical Standards Between the U.S. and Europe
Working on an electrical engineering project for a country other than the one you were educated in is going to be a major challenge—especially when you consider that almost every country in Europe has its own version of electrical standards and codes.
Cal Test CT4140A 4mm Fuse Adapter Prioritises User and Electrical Safety Measures
Cal Test Electronics has unveiled a new 4mm fuse adapter, setting their sights on ultimate flexibility and electrical safety. The CT4140A is designed to accommodate a variety of electrical applications, delivering on its potential as an essential tool for engineers.
How Much Time Do Electrical Engineers Spend on Testing and Inspection?
Virtually every residential building, facility, or industrial plant requires myriad electrical systems to run various processes. This calls for extensive testing and inspection to ensure the reliability of assets and user safety.
