A New Way to Power the World: Innovative Power Technology from Semitrex

Energy awareness is at an all-time high. As the demand for energy increases, the supply seems to be dwindling, causing restrictions at the government level to be enacted. The Department of Energy has issued a new LEVEL VI energy efficiency requirement in effect in 2016, stating that a minimum of 70 percent efficiency must be achieved. Read More

Supercap (EDLC) Cell Balancer IC

Even before the basis of electricity was fully understood, storage devices were fashioned to store charge for use at a later point. While the first electrochemical battery was developed at the turn of the 19th century, the first recognized capacitor was invented over fifty years earlier in 1745. The Leyden jar operated on the exact same principles as modern capacitors, with two electrodes physically separated by a dielectric. Read More

Easy Steps for Detecting Permanent Shorts
in a HS-CAN Bus

Within the automotive world, the dominant communications standard for microcontrollers and electronics is the Controller Area Network (CAN bus), a robust communications protocol that does not rely on central management. Due to the hostile environment of most vehicles and their engine compartments, CAN protocols are designed to overcome as many electromagnetic and physical faults as possible, functioning even when communication lines are shorted.

Pushing Things to the Limit? Asymmetric IGBT Modules for Smooth Switching

In order to move to renewable sources of energy like wind and solar, we need powerful inverters. IGBTs are the key components here. They also play an important role when it comes to power electronics, such as controls for electric motors, where IGBTs (Isolated Gate Bipolar Transistors) have become indispensable. Read More
