AppetizerHome Energy Monitor Project: CurrentIntroduction: An ExperimentThe diode and the negative end of the power supply are connected in series to monitor the current, and the fixed range digital multimeter (DMM) is used to detect the current. This simple design example can realize the current monitoring from a number of μA to 100mA in a single range. This design example has proved to be very useful and simple. Only 3 to 4 modules are needed to monitor the current from the μA over to 100mA in ...
Warm hint: The word in this article is about 1000 words and reading time is about 5 minutesIntroduction1. Composition of DC Stabilized Power SupplyFIG.12. Basic ConceptsAC voltage (current): both amplitude and direction change periodically with time.FIG.2Sinusoidal Voltage/Current Waveform (AC): alternating voltage/current whose amplitude and direction both change sinusoidally and periodically over time. It is often called AC for short.Effective value: the direct voltage/current thermally e ...
Light emitting diode (LED) is a light source that meets the requirements of green lighting. LEDs are safe, efficient, environmentally friendly, long-lived, responsive, small in size and robust in construction with many features that are unmatched by ordinary light-emitting devices.Moreover, it is one of the first semiconductor devices and is widely used. Currently, LEDs are widely used as indicators for various electronic products and as light sources for fiber optic communication.How dose a dio ...
The simplest semiconductor component, the diode, has an astonishing number of applications that are enabled by a number of practical and unique types of diodes that are vital in modern electronics.Now let's get start to learn about diodes.Applications of DiodesWhile only two pin semiconductor devices, there are a number of applications of diodes that are vital in modern electronics. Diodes are known for only allowing current to move in one direction through the component.This lets a diode ac ...
The world's smallest diode, the size of a single molecule, has been developed collaboratively by U.S. and Israeli researchers from the University of Georgia and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU)."Creating and characterizing the world's smallest diode is a significant milestone in the development of molecular electronic devices," explains Dr. Yoni Dubi, a researcher in the BGU Department of Chemistry and Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. "It g ...
Induction cooking appliances commonly make use of resonant topologies which allow bidirectional current flow. Additionally they demand a discrete IGBT that performs best at switching frequencies from 18 to 40kHz and has low losses. Infineon has launched a family of discrete IGBTs to address these needs. The RC-E devices are cost optimised and specifically meet the demands of low- to mid-price range induction cookers and induction rice cookers.Monolithically integrated re ...
