Article: GaN is driving power semiconductors

This article was originally published on www.eetimes.com on September 24, 2019, written by Maurizio Di Paolo Emilio. Power semiconductor devices with gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) are gradually replacing their silicon-based counterparts, largely because using GaN or SiC power transistors can lead to more straightforward and efficient energy storage solutions. The combined GaN…

A World Without Wires

Smart mobile electronic devices have changed the way that we perceive and interact with the world around us. Electric cars, buses, scooters, and bikes are transforming the face of our urban transportation landscape. Autonomous robots in intelligent factories and aerial drones making deliveries are challenging past preconceptions about the ways that we create and distribute…
