Less Silicon, More Brain

The 2016 MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress

It all started in 1976 with a pressure control sensor in an automotive design. The sensor revolution began, and we had no idea that in forty short years we would be looking at sensors and MEMS-enabled systems that would drive around thirty million connected devices. In this week’s Fish Fry, we bring you the coolest innovations and groundbreaking designs from this year’s MEMS Executive Congress in Scottsdale Arizona. We’ve got a selection of interviews from the Technology Showcase including a new always-on piezoelectric MEMS microphone, a biometric gaming application that uses real-time biometric data, the world’s first SmartCase with built-in microprocessing technology, and much more.

DC-DC for Gate Drive Power

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Murata

In motor control and industrial applications, semiconductor switches such as IGBTs and MOSFETS of all types - including newer wide-bandgap devices are used extensively to switch power to a load. This makes DC to DC conversion for gate drivers a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Barnes of Murata about DC to DC conversion for gate drivers for industrial and motor control applications.
