FET technology reduces EMI and boosts efficiency

FET technology reduces EMI and boosts efficiency
PCIM 2014: Targeting small motors, i.e. under 100W, the integrated FSB70xxx modules deliver up to 44% better light-load efficiency, compared with the leading competitive device, claims Fairchild Semiconductor. The level of integration and inclusion of the company’s FRFET (Fast Recovery Field Effect Transistor) also increases thermal efficiency to 12%, due to the improved junction to case formation.

DC/DC Bricks harness more power in less space

DC/DC Bricks harness more power in less space
A series of DC/DC bricks retaining the fundamental design attributes of conventional bricks, but providing up to 51% greater power density, has been launched by Vicor. The HD Brick Series, the company claims, enable system designers to harness more power in less space than with competing brick-based products and Vicor’s earlier generation Maxi, Mini and Micro DC-to-DC converters.

PCIM 2014: Smart gate driver photocoupler monitors IGBT modules

PCIM 2014: Smart gate driver photocoupler monitors IGBT modules
Delivering the ability to monitor IGBT modules to prevent problems rather than react to an incident is a theme at this year’s PCIM exhibition in Nuremberg. Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) contribution to meet this demand is a smart gate driver photocoupler with 4A (max) output current housed in a thin SO16L package for use in driving medium-power IGBTs and power MOSFETs.
