New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Power sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

Power for change

A national power electronics strategy is being developed in order to take advantage of the opportunities available in the emerging low carbon economy. By Graham Pitcher.

Cover Story: Work in progress?

Not all technologies have been the success their developers assumed they would be. But, while some have fallen by the wayside, others remain 'work in progress'.

Understanding DC-coupled and DC-blocked power sensors and how your choice of sensor would impact measurement accuracy

Understanding power meter and sensor key specifications is vital for selecting the right equipment for power measurements. An often overlooked area is the DC or AC coupling characteristic of the power sensor. Choosing the wrong type of sensor can result in measurement inaccuracy and – or even worse, damage to the power sensor. This article compares the DC-coupled sensors to AC-coupled ones (also known as "DC-blocked" sensors). Several application examples are included to illustrate the key differences. The article concludes with choices of both DC-coupled and DC-blocked sensors from Agilent Technologies to suit the user's application requirements.

The next generation of low VCEsat bipolar transistors

Major improvements in saturation resistance and power choice have very much expanded the application horizon of medium-power bipolar transistors in recent years. BISS 4, the latest generation of SMD-packaged medium-power transistors from NXP, is convincing evidence of the capabilities of bipolar transistor technology — to serve switching applications with more power and fewer switching losses, and to create new possibilities of application.

Engineering portable power

Providing mobility in a product can provide additional revenue and open new markets beyond the scope of fixed applications. A good example of this is the portable ultrasound market.

Packing in the power

Creating a high energy battery system is a challenge, but there are a number of reasons why the electric car presents a huge green opportunity.
