Advances in Spin Currents Boost the Development of Compact Electronic Devices
Published in Nature Materials in early January, a recent discovery by Spanish researchers suggests that graphene-based heterostructures of the van der Waals class could be used to design ultra-compact and low-energy electronic devices.
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.
