ST boosts bipolar power transistor current by 50 Percent
Product News  
2/27/2011   Post a comment
The 3STR1630 NPN transistor from STMicroelectronics is the first member in a new family of high-performance bipolar power transistors manufactured using a new low-voltage planar technology. This technology incorporates a double-metal process that allows the cell density to be almost doubled without requiring the use of sophisticated photolithography equipment. In addition to increasing the current capability by about 50 percent for the same die size, the double-metal process enables transistors

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
