Built for full-switching power factor correction in 3-6 kW-power range motor drive applications, these devices include two fast-recovery diodes, two freewheeling diodes, two IGBTs, a gate-driver IC, a shunt resistor and a thermistor, all in a 44 x 26.8 mm package, using half the board space of other modules. They offer 99 percent power factor for the mandatory PFC standard, plus 40 kHz switching operation. They offer under-voltage and over-current protection with a built-in gate-driving IC. They have an isolation voltage rating of 2500 Vrms/min. They use the company's own Direct Bonded Copper-based transfer-molded packaging technology for better thermal efficiency.

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
