To design robust power supplies, designers need to understand some basics and pitfalls.

Is power density the same as energy density?

Power density and energy density are quite different. Read more

Discrete GaN transistors, whether in die or packaged forms, offer high power density to boost pulsed signals in C-, L-, and S-band radars and communications applications.

The blame game is in full swing in the aftermath of Texas’ severe ice storm. Between February 14th and the 19th, Texas experienced record-setting low temperatures for a sustained period. It is estimated that over 3 million customers lost electricity, not just for hours, but for days. During the course of that week, many people also were without water. Read more

Soon, your home may be able to generate solar power from places other than your roof. As the solar market evolves and expands, companies are looking into new solar technologies aimed at spreading solar energy generation beyond traditional rooftop and ground-mount solar panels. One such idea, solar panel windows, has gained momentum recently, and could represent part of the solar market’s future. Read more

With the latest breach of foreign security, we wanted to research the thoughts of the Department of Energy.  We found this article from the office of the Secretary of Energy.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette issued a prohibition order designed to reduce the risks that entities associated with the People’s Republic of China pose to the Nation’s bulk-power system (BPS).   Read more
