Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2019, the Asian leg of Shell’s global competition for science and engineering students to build ultra-efficient cars, will be held at Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur from April 29 to May 2. Objective of the race is to navigate the circuit using the least amount of energy.  In jeopardy of missing the competition just 9 months ago, Team UP Dagisik from University of Philippines Electrical & Electronics Engineering Institute recently finished a successful test run of its newly built battery-power concept vehicle.

New SCALE-iDriver SiC-MOSFET Gate Driver from Power Integrations Maximizes Efficiency, Improves Safety(New!)

February 26th, 2019

Power Integrations, the leader in gate-driver technology for medium- and high-voltage inverter applications, today announced the SIC1182K SCALE-iDriver, a high-efficiency, single-channel silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET gate driver that delivers the highest peak-output gate current available without an external boost stage. Devices can be configured to support different gate-drive voltage requirements matching the range of requirements seen in SiC-MOSFETs today.
