ENIAC targets energy savings News & Analysis 10/23/2007 Post a comment The European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC) has named increased energy efficiency of electronic equipment as a major research target. Up to 30 percent of the world's electrical energy consumption could be saved by using intelligent energy management functions, believes ENIAC Chairman Wolfgang Ziebart.
DS2 readies 400 Mbit/s powerline chip News & Analysis 10/18/2007 Post a comment DS2, the Spanish powerline chip specialist, will start demonstrating next month a device said to double the peak data rate of broadband over powerline equipment and networks to 400 Mbits/second.
Step-down devices up efficiency News & Analysis 10/15/2007 Post a comment More often than not, power efficiency drives the market success or failure of today's consumer electronics products. By dictating the length of a device's operating life between charges, power efficiency plays a pivotal role in users' perceptions of a product's quality.
Power MOSFETs deliver lowest on-resistance Product News 10/10/2007 Post a comment Vishay claims its new family of p-channel MOSFETs sets a new record for lowest on-resistance per unit. Built on a new generation TrenchFET silicon technology, the devices offer maximum on-resistance ratings of 29 milliohms in the PowerPAK SC-70 package.
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.
