Toshiba introduces Mosfets Product News 3/26/2009 Post a comment Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. introduced a new series of MOSFETs for synchronous rectification in the secondary stage of switched mode power supplies (SMPS).
TriQuint rolls new driver amplifiers Product News 3/25/2009 Post a comment TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has rolled out two new driver amplifiers, including the industry's first surface-mount technology (SMT) device for use in 40-gigabits-per-second networks.
Fujitsu: industrial motor control kit with 32-bit MCU Product News 3/25/2009 Post a comment Fujitsu introduced a motor control starter kit equipped with source code to support development with the MB91F479 32-bit RISC microcontroller for industrial motor control applications. The new kit is geared towards driving a 3-phase brushless DC motor (BLDC), or permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM).
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
