The physical kilogram, the last of the physical primary-standard artifacts, has been made obsolete. The world’s metrology and standards organization voted to define all physical standards in terms of just seven universal constants.
Sponsored by Digi-Key and Analog Devices: To prevent the propagation of dc and unwanted ac currents between input and output, while passing the desired signal, isolation is needed. Here are some ways to ease its integration into motor-control design.
Sponsored by Texas Instruments: FOC capability, once considered too expensive to implement in cost-sensitive applications, is now possible using a microprocessor family combined with an innovative new module.
Sponsored by Digi-Key and ON Semiconductor/Kemet: These components, typically built to withstand tough conditions, are critical for maintaining the reliability and long-term life of energy-harvesting systems that are often installed outdoors.
In this three-part series, Dr. Cuk discusses a 48V to 1V, 200A Hybrid Switching topology that supplies present and future microprocessor power requirements along with the ability to handle fast load transients in a single module.
