Toshiba has just announced they are adding two brand new N-Channel devices to their extensive family of U-MOS IX-H family of high-efficiency and high speed switching MOSFETs. TK3R1E04PL and TK3R1A04PL are the two newest additions to the MOSFETs lineup by Toshiba. They help designers improve performance while reducing power consumption in most of the power supply applications for DC-DC converters as well as the secondary side circuits of the SMPS AC-DC power supplies. They have a maximum VDSS rating of 40V and allows for operation with gate-source voltages of +/-20V and the maximum respective drain currents are between 100A and 82A. Having low typical on resistance of just 2.5mO at VGS=10V enables an output capacitance (COSS) of 1000pF which ultimately ensures the efficiency of the on-state operations, rapid switching and lowers switching losses.

TK3R1E04PL and TK3R1A04PL provides the optimal trade-off between resistance and capacitance to support optimum performance and efficiency in power supply applications. Boasting a synchronous rectification designs with low output charge that reduces the rectification power loss in regards to device contributions. Lastly the TK3R1E04PL and TK3R1A04PL will primarily operate with channel temperatures up to 175 degrees Celsius thanks to the U-MOS IX-H technology devoted to ensuring stable operations over a variety of load conditions and temperature ranges.

Recently, On-chip tuning capacitors have had a major issue with being too lossy and causing problems for the user. This issue has been identified and according to the university of California, Santa Barbara has allegedly stated the issue is within the,

"deposition of complex oxides, such as barium strontium titanate, is problematic because of the high temperatures and oxygen-rich environment involved."

Also reporting another major issue has to do with the BST- based device being limited by the deposition and processing methods appose to the actual base material. A change in fabric has become a main solution to their overloading issue by replacing chemicals commonly used in photolithography that contaminate BST. The film in the chip requires a smaller electrode dimensions and finer lithography that the standard integrated capacitor structures. Another challenge that that they face is low-loss reactive devices are microwave frequencies.

Finding alternatives is their main concern to cease the unruly effects that the chip has been encountering. Over much research they have soon discovered that the deposition of low dielectric loss is possible from a hybrid,

“hybrid form of molecular beam epitaxy that uses metal organic precursors.”

As the BST capacitor have many uses they have soon to be used to create phase shifters for phased array antennas in mobile communications or also may be used in antennas in cellular communications.

Despite these unruly materials with the BST this is not the first dilemma of its type. According to Professor Robert York of UCSB there has already been,

"some barium strontium titanate devices are already used for commercial RF electronics, and the infrastructure for deposition and fabrication already exists within semiconductor foundries.”

As a result, the University to provide ICs with films that are placed exactly on metal electrodes.

In recent News, Apple the creator of the iPhone and many apple products have finally witnessed a drop-in sales in its birth place of China. Many competitors are on the rise to surpass and beat apple sales, Samsung and Android being some of the top. Per the tar Worldpanel Comtech Iphones take 31.8% of smartphone sales with a growth of 1.3%. Android a top apple competitor has taken a plunge in the US numbers with 66% and a total of 0.6% decline in revenue sales. The release of the IPhone 6s allowed Apple to compete with Samsung’s release the Galaxy S7/S7 edge. In the US both companies competed side by side for the number one spot was recorded as the,” iPhone 6s devices accounted for 15.1% of the US smartphone OS market in Q2 while Samsung’s Galaxy S7/S7 edge accounted for 14.1%.

“Alongside the US the numbers in the UK headed in the same direction showing that.”

Apple grew 3.1% to 37.2% market share, in France it took 20.2% share and in Germany its share went up 1% to 14.2% share.” Although these sales in the US and UK have gone up it has not been the same for China. Some say that the plunge was due to market share loss or even the being,” outmaneuvered and outclassed.”As iphones are released almost every year many state that they are lacking newer features rather than just an average software upgrade with a better camera. These numbers that were lost due to these factors are quite a large impact in the company. Tim Cook the CEO of apple tries to explain their downfall and says, “we had a surge of upgraders that came into the market for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and the upgrade rate increased relatively more in Greater China than elsewhere around the world.” 

ASAP Semiconductor is a leading distributor of electronic parts and board level components. Being able to provide a broad variety of parts for your very needs. Look at our proprietary website ASAP-Purchasing.com and explore all Apple broad level components for use in various applications.

PSMP Cable Plugs

In Danbury, the company Amphenol RF is expanding to its new PSMP interface. Due to the flexibility there will be four new cable connectors that will be available. These specific cables are designed for 0.141- and 0.86-inch diameter semi-rigid and conformable cables which allow engineers to have way more choices than they currently have.

These new cable plugs are made to operate in high power applications. These applications can run all the way up to 200 W at frequencies of 2.2 GHz. These connectors look similar to the SMP interface, with features of gold and copper outer contacts in white bronze as well. The purpose of these specific finishes ensure a mechanical fit and maximize electrical performance.

The company Amphenol RF is one of the top manufacturers of connectors for use in radio frequency such as microwaves and data transmission systems. Their headquarters are located in Danbury, Connecticut, USA. While they are located in the United States they have global sales that include countries such as Asia and Europe. Some of their standard products include RF connectors, coaxial adapters and RF cable assemblies. Aside from their standard products they also have custom engineered products that include multi-port ganged interconnect, blind-mate and hybrid mixed-signal solutions.

While their main focus is on building on flexibility of PSMP designs, the 4 cable connectors that are available are designed in semi-rigid and conformable cables. These designs suit high-power applications that can range all the way up to 200 W. The mating style is similar to SMP interface, where as well the white gold-plated female center contacts with copper plated in white bronze. These plates ensure mechanical fit and they also optimize electrical performance allowing the high-power ranges to reach a 200 w. This company also adds versatility to the board to focus on their PSMP line.

Senate Confirms a US New Air Force General

On August 23rd 2016. John Vandiver wrote an article for Stars and Stripes talking about the newest Air Force General to be nominated to lead the U.S. Africa Command as well as the U.S. Air Force. These two positions were approved by the U.S. Senate on the prior Wednesday.

For the newest Air Force General, David Goldfien was appointed. Goldfien replaced General Mark A. Welsh. Goldfein was the vice chief of staff for the service before taking over as the Air Force chief of staff. Goldfein has experience in combat experience as well as flying in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Here’s what Air Force Secretary Deborah James had to say about Goldfien being appointed.

“There is not a better person to lead our airmen into the next century of Airpower dominance.”

For the newest U.S. Africa Command, Marine Lt. General Thomas Waldhauser was appointed. Waldhauser replaced General David Rodriguez who was in charge for the past three years. Waldhauser was the director of joint force development with the Joint Chiefs of Staff prior to taking over as the U.S. Africa Command. Waldhauser will be focusing on the instability of Libya in attempts to defuse the situation with the Islamic State trying to establish ground in Libya.
