Power Distribution Planning Design How-To 4/17/2002 Post a comment In UDSM design power distribution can be more important than power consumption. This primer on managing UDSM power grid design issues, by Resve Saleh, Michael Benoit, and Pete McCrorie of Simplex Solutions, addresses IR drop, ground bounce, pin inductance, and electromigration.
High Repetition Rate Thyristor Driver for a Magnetic Modulator Design How-To 4/5/2002 Post a comment You find pulsed laser modulators, driven by a distributed-gate fast
thyristor, in several high current/high volatge applications such as
pulsed gas lasers and particle accelerators. Dharmraj V. Ghodke and
Muralikrishanan. K. of the Laser Systems Engineering Division Center for Advanced Technology in India describe a thyristor gate-driver for delivering a 4µs, greater than 80A pulse with a rise time under 100ns and a 7kHz repetition rate.
