At the 62nd annual IEDM taking place in early December two of the leading groups in process development will take the wraps off their 7nm finFET technologies.
Researchers describe at IEDM 2015 how they are making gallium nitride fit into a wider range of power-handling applications and may even result in mass-market vertical transistors.
Intersil is aiming to remove the intermediate converters from the power buses of industrial systems using a buck converter that can take a voltage of 48V and provide power rails down to 1V.
To make a high-efficiency power supply XP Power used heat as an additional design variable with an architecture that turns conventional wisdom over one aspect of component reliability on its head.
Power converters are arriving on the market with the aim of simplifying the job of building energy-harvesting systems for wireless sensor nodes and the Internet of Things.
