A longside resistors and inductors, capacitors are one of the fundamental electronic components. In fact, an argument could be made that they are more versatile than their other passive counterparts, essential to providing everything from energy storage and filtering to smoothing and RF tuning. About one trillion capacitors are produced every year, with around 80% of that … [Read more...] about Silicon Alternatives to the Ubiquitous MLCC
An insurmountable wall of acronyms glued together with complex organizational dynamics can present a complicated scenario for those wanting to become more involved with the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS). This wall can feel even more unsurmountable to those new to engaging with the IEEE, especially students, recent graduates, or diverse members. Industry members may … [Read more...] about Getting Involved With IEEE Power Electronics Society: Successful APEC Event for WIE, YP, and You!
Globally, governments are mandating a switch from internal combustion engine (ICE) technology to electric-drive vehicles in 100s of millions of vehicles to combat climate change. For example, on 29 June 2022, the European Union (EU) agreed to a framework to eliminate carbon emissions from new cars and vans by 2035, effectively removing the ICE option for large-scale auto … [Read more...] about Accelerating the Transition to Vehicle Electrification
