Deciphering Data Sheets

Datasheets are technical instruction manuals for electronic components, and the information they contain helps you select the right part for your design. But datasheets vary between component types and manufacturers, which can lead to significant misunderstandings. This whitepaper will take you through a typical Wolfspeed datasheet and explain the meaning of its specs and sections.

RF Power Amplification 101: Waveform Basics

RF power is delivered by the power amplifier (PA), the final stage of amplification before the antenna, with each application placing on the PA its own set of requirements in terms of frequency, bandwidth, load, power, efficiency, and linearity. This article is the first in a series that will discuss these considerations.

Silicon Carbide Meets Power V2G Demands in EV Fast-Charger Market

This paper explores how silicon carbide (SiC) technology continues to be a leading solution for power and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) demands in the fast growing fast-charger market. V2G is gradually developing as companies innovate compelling business models for powerful energy storage systems (ESS) on wheels. While solar power and stationary ESS will certainly have an important place in the electrified future, V2G is being looked at for dealing with load peaks.
