Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Panasonic Corporation announced plans to conduct a research experiment in Indonesia on battery sharing using the Honda Mobile Power Pack (â€œMobile Power Packâ€) detachable mobile battery with electric mobility products, including electric motorcycles powered by the Mobile Power Pack.
Power Electronics World invited the gallium nitride (GaN) transistor experts at GaN Systems to provide an introduction to the capabilities of high power density, wide bandgap semiconductors for designers who have worked primarily in silicon technologies. This article is the first in a three-part series. By: Paul Wiener, VP Strategic Marketing, GaN Systems
Many nations have mandated the phase-out of internal combustion engines in the coming decades to meet global greenhouse gas reduction targets. Electric vehicle (EV) performance can be optimized by utilizing advanced design and simulation tools that save manufacturers time and money. By Guilherme Tondello, Creative Solutions, and Puneet Sinha, Mentor-A Siemens Business, Mechanical Analysis Division
Advanced semiconductors now support previously unattainable efficiency and power density. But these devices place high demands on test and measurement (T&M) equipment; oscilloscopes with isolated input channels are ideal solutions with wide-ranging analytical abilities.

Imec and UTAC have developed a unique process for the wafer thinning and backside metallization of highly stressed GaN-on-200 mm silicon wafers.
This has resulted in a packaged 650 V GaN device â€“ smaller than state-of-the-art. Stefaan Decoutere, Program Director GaN Power Electronics at imec and Nicolo Ronchi, Researcher at imec explains the process.
