Maxim Integrated’s Family of CMTI Isolated Gate Drivers: Drive High Power Transistors
Almost every modern electrical system uses switching power supplies. Due to its low current digital signaling, a microcontroller is not considered to be efficient in driving high power transistors of power supplies. Therefore, a gate driver is used to amplify the microcontroller output before it is fed into the input of a high power transistor.
Critical Engineering Skills For the Future: Readying for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the UK
Engineering is vital to the UK’s economy: it provides quality employment alongside some vital solutions to major global challenges. However, the UK, similarly to the rest of Europe, has been experiencing a skills gap. Faced with the fourth industrial revolution and more, will the UK have the volume of engineering talent it needs to remain a key player?
