Less switching losses: Energy efficient SiC-MOSFETs of Rohm at Rutronik

  Knowledge

Six Silicon Carbide MOSFETs with trench gate structure (650V / 1200V) build the SCT3xxx xR series of Rohm. The product range comes with a 4-pin package (TO-247-4L) maximizing switching performances and reducing switching losses by up to 35% over conventional 3-pin package types (TO-247N). The Sic-MOSFETs are especially suitable for the energy efficient use in server power supplies, UPS systems, solar power...

Thermal fuse with that certain extra

  Knowledge

In modern highly compacted electronic devices, safety in operation is increasingly threatened by excessively high temperatures. As a rule, thermal fuses are used to counter this risk. But only in combination with a shunt resistor is it possible to provide a fail-proof protection.

New technology prevents mosquito bites - No more itching for me

  Suppliers

The one thing worse than a buzzing mosquito is its bite – and those affected know that the itching is enough to drive one almost insane. Up to now, most remedies have focussed on alleviating the itchiness. However, a start-up company has now developed a wristband that prevents mosquitoes from biting in the first place.
