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.
