Gate Driver Board and SPICE Models for Silicon Carbide Junction Transistors (SJT) Released
November 21, 2014
Dulles, VA, November 21, 2014 --(PR.com)-- GeneSiC Semiconductor, a pioneer and global supplier of a broad range of Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors today announces the immediate availability of Gate Driver evaluation board and has expanded its design support for the industry's lowest loss switches - the SiC Junction Transistor (SJT) - with a fully-qualified LTSPICE IV model. Using the new Gate Driver Board, power conversion circuit designers can verify the benefits of sub-15 nanosecond, temperature independent switching characteristics of SiC Junction Transistors, with low driver power losses. Incorporating the new SPICE models, circuit designers can easily evaluate the benefits GeneSiC's SJTs provide for achieving a higher level of efficiency than is possible with conventional silicon power switching devices for comparably-rated devices.

EJL Wireless Research adds the Nokia Networks LTE FSME Unit to its DesigN Analysis Infrastructure; DNA-I series of teardown reports.
November 20, 2014
  Salem, NH (PRWEB) November 20, 2014         EJL Wireless Research is announcing a new report within its proprietary DNA-I series, a Nokia Networks (formerly Nokia Siemens Networks) LTE FSME (Flexi System Module version E) eNodeB.         "This is our second look into the Flexi digital baseband unit design for Nokia Networks (we previously analyzed a FSMB for W-CDMA) but our first analysis of a LTE capable eNodeB. The FSME forms the core of the Flexi eNodeB platform for Nokia Networks and allows mobile operators a seamless migration path for a multi-mode configuration supporting both W-CDMA/HSPA and LTE. We note however, that the FSME does not support GSM/EDGE technology. A separate Flexi EDGE system module is required for GSM/EDGE support" said founder and President, Earl Lum.           "The FSME eNodeB unit supports a maximum downlink throughput of 150Mbps and uplink throughput of 50Mbps.
