LATEST FEATURE: The Landscape of Isolated DC/DC Bias Power Supplies - issue 2/2020 Read PDF
Moving signals and power across an isolation barrier is a common challenge for designers. Isolation might be required for safety, noise immunity or large potential differences between system domains. Understanding system-level specifications like the number of outputs, regulation requirements, output power, insulation rating, operating temperature and input voltage range are critical. From there, designers can derive the lowest-cost solution that meets all of the system requirements..

LATEST FEATURE: Proving the Ruggedness of GaN technology in Automotive and Demanding Application - issue 4/2020 Read PDF
To achieve the most efficient power conversion circuit requires the best semiconductor switch as the fundamental building block. Many people now consider gallium nitride to be a better switch than silicon. This is because GaN transistors feature a very low on-resistance and very high switching speeds; they are also rugged as they do not suffer avalanche breakdown of traditional MOSFETs. GaN is commonly used in RF and LED applications, yet employing GaN as a power technology brings new challenge
