The Angstrom Era of Electronics

Angstrom is a unit of measurement that is most commonly used for extremely small particles or atoms in the fields of physics and chemistry. However, nanometres are almost too big for new electronic components, and in the not-so-distant future angstrom may be used to measure the size of semiconductors. It could happen soon Some large […]

What are GaN and SiC?

Silicon will eventually go out of fashion, and companies are currently heavily investing in finding its protégé. Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) are two semiconductors that are marked as being possible replacements. Compound semiconductors Both materials contain more than one element, so they are given the name compound semiconductors. They are also both […]

Semiconductors in space

Blast off A post about semiconductors being used in space travel would be the perfect place to make dozens of space-themed puns, but let’s stay down to earth on this one. There are around 2,000 chips used in the manufacture of a single electric vehicle. Imagine, then, how many chips might be used in the […]
