Powering ahead with SiC research – Feature Article by Caroline Hayes

Jul 16, 2014

After recently heading to Nuremberg for PCIM Europe 2014, my head is filled with thoughts of power: power management, energy efficiency, new regulations and alternative power sources. I realised this had become an obsession when listening to someone discussing the use of ‘Sic’ after a phrase, and I immediately thought of silicon carbide (SiC) before

Planning to achieve low impedance package traces By: Jitesh Shah, Integrated Device Technology

Planning to achieve low impedance package traces By: Jitesh Shah, Integrated Device Technology Compared to traditional wirebond approaches, flip-chip interconnects provide a better option where superior electrical performance and high signal density are required. However, if the chip I/O floor-planning is not well thought out and optimised for the application, then the benefit of the
