Infineon - 600V CoolMOS™ P7 SJ MOSFET
The 600 V CoolMOS™ P7 in the new improved TO-247 4pin package with asymmetric leads offers optimum balance between ease-of-use and highest energy efficiency, targeting a broad range of applications ranging from low power SMPS up to highest power levels.
600 V CoolMOS™ P7 achieves up to 1.5 percent better efficiency and 4.2°C lower MOSFET temperature versus competitor offerings. Its gate charge Qg and Eoss are 30 to 60 percent lower compared to previous CoolMOS™ families and competition, which leads to reduced driving and switching losses that allow high efficiency in various power classes.
RFID revolutionizes security in IoT
Security is one of the most important topics in the automotive industry. The speed of IT integration into cars requires a rethinking of conventional solutions. One new solution for boosting security in cars is CAN-FD (for Flexible Data rate).
CAN-FD enables manufacturers to increase the communication bandwidth and implement suitable cryptography methods to secure data and authenticate devices connected to the bus. Werner Busch, Field Application Engineer at Avnet Silica, explains how CAN-FD fixes security issues that arise with controlled area network.Read article now
