third phase of the RoHS 2 directive will take effect. The rule, part of
the Directive 2011/65/EU of 2011, directly affects the import,
manufacture, and sale of medical devices in the European Union . New
products that do not comply with the Directive’s restrictions on
hazardous substances won’t be allowed to be sold in the EU.
semiconductor giant quietly shut down its business unit that was
responsible for its once-thriving wearable devices. Many wearable
applications are still out there, but the market may not be growing as
fast or as broadly as some device manufacturers would like. Intel is
increasing efforts within the New Technologies Group on other advanced
the race for time-to-market in the Internet of Things (IoT), proper
security is inconvenient because it adds development and component cost
and design complexity. While many traditional industries have not been
exposed to security issues, they suddenly become hacking targets when
their products become smart and connected.
paper discusses two approaches for power systems within medical
equipment for patient-connected applications. The part of the equipment
that comes into contact with the patient is known as the ‘applied
part’.Learn more about the different standards and about their
issue of counterfeit semiconductors in the supply chain extends well
beyond the borders of the United States, of course. Quantifying the
size and scope of the problem is problematic, even for the
semiconductor industry itself. Industry Association (SIA) estimates
that counterfeiting costs U.S.-based chip companies alone more than
$7.5 billion per year.
Internet of Things is not growing as fast as expected but it is growing
thanks to more integrated parts and low power networks, an analyst
said. Fueling the engines, Andes Technology announced four new cores
for IoT gateways and other uses.
software developers normally are applying defect prevention techniques
early in the lifecycle. But the demand for IoT requires a new testing
paradigm that more closely resembles the challenges that Enterprise IT
have faced for decades.
techniques are an interesting solution in switched mode power supplies
to achieve high efficiency at high switching frequencies. This webinar
focuses on Phase-Shift Zero Voltage Switching (PS ZVS) topology, with
special attention on the benefits of using 1200 V silicon carbide (SiC)
power devices in comparison to counterpart silicon IGBTs.
