I used the prior 800 and 900 volt parts on lightning suppresion high side protection circuit now flying on the Boeing 787 Deamliner.
had accidntly over voltaged these parts while trying t get to 750 volts at another LRU way from the injection point near the controller.
the tech running the power injector did not tell me how high the voltage was at the injectin location near the controller.When after many ycles over 00 volts inject the FETs finally failed. The passives and novel design integrating both the passives and active components alowed this ~ 3:1 over spec injection to pass faiure multple times.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
