TDK Announces SFL Series 300W and 1,000W Programmable Electronic DC Loads
The SFL Series incorporates high-speed current feedback control to eliminate load current overshoot and oscillation to generate a stable and predictable load waveform. The technology is capable of operating in seven different load modes and four operating modes, and this flexibility allows the user to perform up to seventeen different types of load tests on DC power supplies, fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, and other components.
Power transient response is 3x faster than 12V battery.
You may wonder why does an EV need a conventional battery when there’s a 400V or 800V battery already in the vehicle to power the motors? Today the 12V or 48V batteries power all the other systems in the vehicle, but they add cost and weight and take up valuable space. Why not remove the 12V battery and use the 400 – 800V battery to power everything in the car?
Flexibility meets increased power density and performance
Infineon Technologies AG launches new current ratings for its EconoDUAL 3 portfolio with TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 chips. With the broad range of current classes from 300 A up to 900 A, the portfolio offers inverter designers a high degree of flexibility while also providing increased power density and performance. In addition to solar and drive applications, the portfolio is also tailored for Commercial, construction and agricultural vehicles (CAV) ...
Reliability Considerations for Peltier Modules
Peltier modules, also known as thermoelectric coolers (TEC) or thermoelectric modules (TEM), are solid state devices which transfer heat when electrical power is applied. This blog post will provide an overview of Peltier module construction followed by a summary of common failure mechanisms and ways to improve TEC reliability.
Nexperia surface-mount device passes BLR requirements
Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, has announced that one of its surface-mount device packages - the clip-bond FlatPower package CFP15B - has, for the first time, passed Board Level Reliability (BLR) testing for automotive applications by a leading Tier 1 supplier.
