Global Rectifiers Market 2014-2018
July 28, 2014
Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report: Global Rectifiers Market 2014-2018 https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2225710/Global-Rectifiers-Market-2014-2018.html About Rectifiers Rectifiers are the electronic devices that convert AC to DC. It includes one or more diodes, electronic components that conduct current in only one direction. Rectifiers are predominantly used as electronic components of DC power supplies and high-voltage direct current power transmission systems. Because of their predominant rectifying characteristics, they are predominantly used for power and signal conditioning in numerous applications such as power plants, and military and aerospace. They can be used as clamping networks for SMPS, dampers, and modulator diodes for the deflection circuits in CRTs freewheeling diodes for inductive loads. They are are also used in signaling, switching, electroplating, electrocoating, and processing applications. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Rectifiers market will grow at a CAGR of 8.45 percent over the period 2013-2018.

A microcontroller contains a processor core, memory, and programmable input/output peripherals, which means small computer on a single integrated circuit. Microcontrollers are used in devices which have automatic control functions such as medical devices, power tools, and smart homes devices. Any control system is brainless without microcontrollers. A DSP can be used for the enhancement of signal strength and also for the signal filtering purpose. DSP is majorly used for processing the digital signal to provide the needed signal strength.

Semicon West 2014: Positive outlook for chip makers, suppliers
January 01, 1970
Expectations for improved semiconductor demand, driven by the latest smartphones and tablets and the internet of things--the term used to describe the increasing use of chips in applications like thermostats and refrigerators--helped fuel optimistic sentiment at Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International's (SEMI; San Jose, CA) annual Semicon West conference, held 8-10 July at San Francisco. Mario Stanghellini, v.p. and business director/chemical mechanical planarization technologies at Dow Chemical, says he expects modest but healthy growth in 2014. "The smartphone market has stabilized," after a correction in 2013, Stanghellini says. "I think we will have a slightly better year. Healthy growth would be around 3-5%." Last year was essentially flat, with retractions in the third and fourth quarters essentially erasing "gangbuster" growth in the first quarter, Stanghellini says. The current year started off similarly, with a strong first quarter, but Stanghellini expects this to stabilize and flatten in the second half of the year. "I think inventories are healthy; the cell phone market has settled down. Regionally, the business is doing quite well in Korea, China, and Taiwan."
