RAC03-K/GB Series: RECOM’S 3W AC-DC Energy Efficient Modules
With new IoT applications on the horizon in 2020 and beyond, RECOM has created a new high-quality, no-load power consumption, and cost-effective series of interconnected application modules having a minimal 1 x 1 inches footprint size which offers optimal standby mode.
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.
Disruptive Electrical Engineering Technologies: Supercapacitors
With growing concerns over environmentally-unfriendly materials—as well as of course the often low reliability of batteries—many manufacturers are turning to supercapacitors as the energy storage devices of choice for their applications.
Maxim Integrated’s Karthi Gopalan on What Led Her to Assume a Leadership Role
After spending years developing semiconductors, Karthi Gopalan is now leading a team of designers at an established integrated circuit manufacturer. In this interview, she shares some of the highlights of her path towards becoming a business leader in the EE Industry.
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?
Maxim Integrated’s Precision Voltage Reference and Evaluation Kit: The MAX6078 and MAX6078EVKIT
The MAX6078 and the MAX6078EVKIT—respectively, Maxim Integrated’s Precision Voltage Reference and its evaluation kit—are both analogue devices. The former allows access to both a low drift and low noise at the optimal power supply (15µA), whereas the latter is an intricately-designed circuit board used to accurately evaluate the MAX6078’s voltage references.
