ON Semiconductor Announces New Full Silicon Carbide MOSFET Module Solutions for Charging Electric Vehicles at APEC 2021

APEC 2021 – PHOENIX, Ariz. – June 7, 2021 – ON Semiconductor® (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, announces a pair of 1200 V full silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET 2-PACK modules further enhancing their range of products suitable for the challenging electric vehicle (EV) market.

As sales of EV continue to grow, infrastructure must be rolled-out to meet the needs of drivers, providing a network of rapid charging stations that will allow them to complete their journeys quickly and without ‘range anxiety’. Requirements in this sector are rapidly evolving, requiring power levels in excess of 350 kW and efficiencies of 95% becoming the ‘norm’. Given the … Read More → "ON Semiconductor Announces New Full Silicon Carbide MOSFET Module Solutions for Charging Electric Vehicles at APEC 2021"

Antenova’s new flexible Fera antenna for new miniature devices on 915MHz ISM and LoRaWAN

Hatfield, UK – 8th June 2021 – Antenova Ltd, UK-based manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is announcing a new flexible embedded antenna for the next generation of small monitoring devices on North America’s 915MHz ISM and LoRaWAN networks.

This antenna, named Fera, part no SRFI068, is a flexible printed circuit (FPC) antenna measuring 33 x 13 x 0.15mm. FPC antennas do not require a ground plane to function, which is an advantage in small designs where space is tight, as no empty space is needed around the antenna on … Read More → "Antenova’s new flexible Fera antenna for new miniature devices on 915MHz ISM and LoRaWAN"

Choose the force you need: new high-power Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers

MUNICH, JUNE 2021

Modern industrial automation solutions, energy systems and professional equipment are often extremely specialized devices that require high safety and design flexibility for switching elements like semiconductor relays. A photovoltaic driver for galvanic separation in combination with a distinct MOSFET power switch leaves nothing to be desired.

The new APV models of Panasonic Industry’s Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers can control MOSFETS in a new range by offering high-output voltage or high-output current.

The Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers come in a miniaturized SSOP housing and provide … Read More → "Choose the force you need: new high-power Photovoltaic MOSFET drivers"
