Nvidia promotes AI with cheap, pocket-size computer

Nvidia $99 AI computer Jetson Nano devkit module

The CUDA-X-based Jetson Nano AI computer delivers 472 GFLOPS of compute performance for running modern AI workloads and consumes as little as 5 W. The Jetson Nano comes in two versions: a $99 devkit for developers, makers, and enthusiasts; and a $129 production-ready module for companies looking to create mass-market edge systems.

Digital Power Modules supply processing logic circuits, memory

Digital Power Modules supply processing logic circuits, memory

Renesas announced a pair of new encapsulated hybrid digital DC/DC PMBus™ power modules, the 10-amp ISL8280M and 15-amp ISL8282M. The hybrid digital power modules offer a power density of 115mA/mm2 in a 12mm x 11mm package, with up to 95 percent peak efficiency. They are complete single-channel, synchronous step-down regulated power supplies that operate over a wide input voltage range of 5V to 16V.

R&D framework will devise on-glass antennas

R&D framework will devise on-glass antennas

On March 15, 2019, AGC Inc., inaugurated anechoic chambers constructed in Gosselies (Belgium) for the development of automotive on-glass antennas. With the completion of this R&D facility, AGC has established a tri-polar R&D framework for automotive on-glass antennas in Japan, the United States and Europe for the first* time in the glass industry.

Small, updateable satellites change face of space technology

Small, updateable satellites change face of space technology

Satellites that launched one, ten or even fifteen years ago largely have the same capability they had when they lifted off. With the new architecture, users can add capability and assign new missions with a software push, just like adding an app on a smartphone. This new technology, called SmartSat, is a software-defined satellite architecture that will boost capability for payloads on several pioneering nanosats ready for launch this year.

Handheld power supply is configurable

Handheld power supply is configurable

The units from Vox Power have an input operating range of 85-264VAC and up to four single or dual output modules, allowing configuration of 1-8 outputs. Single output modules have voltage ranges from 1.5 to 60VDC with currents up to 25A. Series and parallel combinations of the modules can result in output voltages of up to 240VDC and a maximum current of 100A from a single configuration. Dual output voltages range from 1.5 to 15VDC with currents up to 5A.

Startup uses AI to control three-phase converters

Startup uses AI to control three-phase converters

The platform from Pre-Switch includes the Pre-Drive3 controller board, powered by the Pre-Flex FPGA, and RPG gate driver board, enables a doubling of power output for a typical inverter, or an increase in switching speed by a factor of up to 20 times.

Soft switching IGBT family targets induction heating

Soft switching IGBT family targets induction heating

The STGWA40IH65DF and STGWA50IH65DF 650V STPOWER IGBTs increase the energy efficiency of resonant converters in the 16kHz-60kHz switching-frequency range.

Extending ST’s trench field-stop (TFS) IGBTs for soft-switching applications, which also include the HB and HB2 series for power supplies, welders, and solar converters, the new IH-series devices are fine-tuned for the half-bridge circuits of appliances such as induction cookers and other soft-switching applications. Product designers can now choose these IGBTs to target superior energy ratings.

OneWeb raises another $1.25bn for small satellites

OneWeb raises another $1.25bn for small satellites

The fundraising follows the sucessful launch of the first six satellites last month and was led by SoftBank, Grupo Salinas, Qualcomm Technologies and the Government of Rwanda, bringing the total raised to $3.4bn.

OneWeb’s fleet of 650 small satellites is intended to deliver global high speed, low latency, seamless broadband access from 2021.

RGB LED module is ultra-bright

RGB LED module is ultra-bright

For reliability, the company has tested the LED module in an hydrogen sulfide environment, revealing superior maintenance of flux and forward voltage of the red, green and blue LEDs. The compact module features a black matte surface, a flat light-emitting surface and water resistant design (IPX8 rating), for use in a number of video wall and illumination applications.
