Best-in-Class Grid-Protection for Next-Generation PV Inverters By Steve Drumm, Omron Europe

Jul 16, 2014

The latest standards for grid-connected solar inverters call for high-performing electromagnetic relays that are designed specifically for grid-protection duties As consumers’ dependence on electricity continues to increase, and governments seek to meet carbon reduction targets by increasing reliance on renewable energy sources, an increasing number of small solar plants are expected to supply energy to

Powering ahead with SiC research – Feature Article by Caroline Hayes

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
