With the PCIM 2016, Europe’s leading exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management kicks off today in Nuremberg, Germany. Over the next three days developments in power semiconductors, passive components, thermal management products, energy storage, sensors and new materials as well as systems will be presented. Usually you would have to wait until the show is over to identify the trend of the year. In 2016 however, one topic will predictably be the most discussed one: Wide Band Gap (WBG)Read More
SiC MOSFET STMicroelectronics
Have you ever had a nightmare that involved a MOSFET data sheet? We wouldn’t be surprised if you did. Choosing the perfect components is hard. Selecting the best MOSFET is even worse. Scrolling through tons of data sheets to find the perfect balance between on resistance (RDS(on)) and gate charge (Qg), estimating switching and conduction losses and considering die size and packaging can make for a rough day. On the other side of the table the R&D guys at semiconductor manufacturers face similar challenges, as at some point optimising parametersRead More

Embedded World 2016 – Day 3 Recap

We are back from the embedded world 2016 in Nuremberg but still overwhelmed. It will most likely take a couple of days to process everything we experienced during the three days at the Nuremberg Exhibition and Convention centre. But there is one thing that we are able to say already now: It was a lot of fun! Not surprisingly, the beginning of the third day at the embedded world trade fair was of course dominated by one topic: The EVB booth party last night. It was nice to see thatRead More
Developing for the industrial IoT? It’s easy! With open development environments (ODE) like the STM32 ODE you can build powerful applications by combining various building blocks. Ultra-low power MCUs like the STM32L4 offer the possibility of running applications on battery and implementing them in moving parts like warehouse robots and service trucks or into applications of small size. However while these innovations simplify the development of industrial applications there is still one question which could give you headaches: How to connect them? For consumer devices like wearables, smart home applications andRead More

Welcome To The Future Of Space Technology

“Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next 10.” – Neil Armstrong Having walked on the moon Mr Armstrong knows what he is talking about. His famous quote could also be applied to last week’s Space Tech Expo, but in a positive way! During the three day event which EBV joined together with STMicroelectronics we engaged in conversations around modern developments and trends like CubeSats and built promising relationships set to result in the overwhelming advancementsRead More
The Internet of Things (IoT) – interconnecting objects, data, processes and people – long ago ceased to be merely a future vision, and is now reality. It’s estimated that 1 trillion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2025. With billions of smart connected devices waiting to share their data, the engineering community is facing the critical challenge of increasing performance while reducing the energy consumption of their electronic products. An additional challenge is how to secure, store and share the tremendous amount of data collected by all the interconnected things and systems.  CEO VoicesRead More
