Featured Report Analysis
Both leading foundries allowed customers to claim they were using a 4nm process when, in fact, they were using 5nm technology. This situation renders node names meaningless. Featured in our July 22 Microprocessor Report we are making this available, in full, for a limited time.
A collaboration between Dr. Stephen Russell (TechInsights) and Prof. Peter Gammon (PGC). ROHM released their 4th generation (Gen 4) MOSFET products this year. The new range includes MOSFETs rated to 750 V (increased from 650V) and 1200 V, with a number of the available TO247 packaged components automotive qualified up to 56A/24mΩ.
