Teledyne e2v, pSemi and GaN Systems unveil industry’s fastest HiRel GaN power solution at Satellite 2018

GaN Power solution features GaN FET and half-bridge driver for high-reliability applications

Teledyne e2v is launching a complete GaN power solution based on technology from pSemi (formerly Peregrine Semiconductor) and GaN Systems. The solution features GaN FETs and the industry’s first rad-tolerant, half-bridge power driver for GaN high-reliability applications. The technology will be demonstrated at Satellite 2018 March 12-15 in the Teledyne Defense Electronics booth (#619).

Transient Load Tester for Time Domain PDN Validation

Power distribution networks (PDNs) delivering power to ICs in a system need to be thoroughly designed and analyzed in order to make sure any voltage fluctuation on the rail is within the tolerance of every IC connected to that rail.  As ICs on the rail draw power, they generate a voltage fluctuation on the rail.  The PDN must have the capacity to supply enough charge such that the resulting voltage drop is less than the maximum voltage drop each IC on the rail can tolerate.  If voltage fluctuations appear outside IC tolerance limits, a slew of problems can surface such as IC damage, failure, or reduced lifespan.

A Design Rule Check List

No matter how well you understand the design principles, and no matter how much experience you have in designing boards, it’s easy for some problems to slip through the cracks because you just forgot to check that feature, or your design is just too big to manually check. This is where a design rule checker comes in.
