A semiconductor-based, high-speed switching device for electrical power. Such products, which open and close at nanosecond speeds, are expected to be widely used to distribute clean, uniform power for computers and electronics.|
From Power Grids to Motherboards
Instead of using electromechanical switches, huge powerchips can be used to switch electrical feeds in the national power grid. Medium-sized powerchips can switch a building from grid power to backup batteries, while small powerchips switch at the circuit board level in power supplies and UPS systems.
