Muxcapacitors and a Quantum Shift in Power Supply Technology

Smarter Power Part One

What has your power supply done for you lately? In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at a revolutionary new technology that’s taking power supplies by storm. My guest is Michael Freeman (CEO/CTO – Semitrex) and he’s here to introduce us to the power of the muxcapacitor and unveil how Semitrex plans to stem the tide of the world’s energy consumption…one power supply at a time. Also this week, we take a closer look at the newest rumors surrounding Intel’s buyout of Altera.

New package technology improves EMI and thermal performance with smaller solution size

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Power supply designers have a new tool in their effort to achieve balance between efficiency, size, and thermal performance with DC/DC power modules. The Enhanced HotRod™ QFN package technology from Texas Instruments enables engineers to address design challenges with an easy-to-use footprint that resembles a standard QFN. This new package type combines the advantages of flip-chip-on-lead with the improved thermal performance presented by a large thermal die attach pad (DAP).

Fuses in Automotive Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Littelfuse

Automotive applications put a high demand on fuses. With the increasing electrical content in modern vehicles, correct fuse specification is a critical item for safety, and standards have been slow to catch up with demands. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Saad Lambaz from Littelfuse to discuss the evolution of standards for fuses in automotive use, and how to do about choosing fuses in your next design.
