Average Household Electricity Consumption

The rhythm of our daily lives pulses to the silent heartbeat of electricity, an essential companion often overlooked until that monthly bill graces our mailbox. But have you ever paused to ponder the energy dance within the average American household? From coast to coast, climate, household size, and lifestyle choices mold our electricity usage. So, exactly how much electricity does a house use?
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) provides deeper insights into clean energy trends and...

DC-DC Power Density Accelerates with GaN Technology

A wide-band gap, high-performance semiconductor called gallium nitride (GaN) will soon take the place of the conventional silicon-based MOSFET technology. This is so that GaN devices can meet the fundamental conditions for boosting the power density of any electronic device, which are higher switching speeds and higher thermal conductivity. 
Almost every system that relies on electronics and has several modules operating at different voltage levels employs DC-DC power converters. Increasing the power density and thermal performance of a module has been the top ...
