Power conversion is very common with today’s electronics. We constantly switch from AC to DC and vice-versa. The common source of AC is the power supply whereas, batteries are used for DC power as and when required.  The conversion...
Electric passenger vehicles are still in a nascent phase of development. Currently, only 1% (550,000 vehicles) of the world’s cars use electric power. The reasons for such low and slow market penetration is due to the short range of the batteries, the...

Littelfuse, Inc., has introduced the SP1026 Series 15pF 30kV bidirectional discrete TVS diode array, designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment from damage due to electrostatic discharges (ESD). Zener diodes fabricated using proprietary silicon avalanche technology protect each I/O pin...
ROHM has recently announced the 3rd generation SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBDs) for power supply PFC circuits in servers and high performance PCs. The SCS3 series adopts a structure that improves upon the VF characteristics of ROHM’s 2nd Generation SiC...
STMicroelectronics recently announced power semiconductors for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (EVs) with a timetable for qualification to the automotive quality standard AEC-Q101. In EVs and hybrids, where better electrical efficiency means greater mileage, the new silicon-carbide (SiC) technology enables efficient...
Littelfuse announced a series of silicon Schottky devices designed for ultra-low forward voltage drop (VF), which are well-suited for use in high-frequency applications. What it delivers This component is designed for high frequency application such as switch-mode power supplies, as well as DC applications...
