Maxim Integrated – Choose a Flexible and Scalable Front-End Tuner for Your Software Defined Radio

FTMSept2017-MaximIntegrated-tile-200x200

Introduction Traditional radio receivers integrate a front-end tuner with a baseband processor, hardwired to one specific radio standard. This means that there are as many radio receiver chips as there are standards. In contrast, Software Defined Radio (SDR) architectures perform the baseband processing using software, enabling reception of a wide range of radio standards with […]

Infineon – EasyDUAL™ Half Bridge Topology with CoolSiC™ MOSFET Featuring the FF11MR12W1M1 and the FF23MR11W1M1

FTMSept2017-Infineon-EasyDUAL-tile-200x200

Silicon Carbide (SiC) opens up new degrees of freedom for designers to harness never before seen levels of efficiency and system flexibility. In comparison to traditional silicon (Si) based switches like IGBTs and MOSFETs, the SiC MOSFET offers a series of advantages. These include the lowest gate charge and device capacitance levels seen in 1200V […]
