Benefits Of Using Wireless Communication Technologies In Power Electronics Systems Employing AGDs


A technical paper titled “Wireless Control of Active Gate Drivers for Silicon Carbide power MOSFETs” was published by researchers at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Abstract: "Active Gate Drivers (AGDs) enhance controllability and monitoring of switching devices, especially for fast switching Silicon Carbide (SiC) power Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transis... » read more

Research Bits: Aug. 23


Algae-powered microprocessor Engineers from the University of Cambridge, Arm Research, Scottish Association for Marine Science, and Norwegian University of Science and Technology used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power an Arm Cortex M0+ microprocessor continuously for over a year. The algae, Synechocystis, is non-toxic and harvests energy from photosynthesis. The tiny electri... » read more
