1. Germany plans to spend 14 billion euros to attract chipmakers
The German government hopes to attract more chip manufacturers to invest in chip manufacturing locally with 14 billion euros (about $14.71 billion). The reason behind this plan is that global chip shortages and supply chain issues are taking a toll on automakers, healthcare providers, telecom operators, and more while the demand for chips is increasing.
2. Metal 3D Printing Offers New Opportunities for HP
On plastics, the problem with 3D printing is that it competes with the most efficient technology in the world, injection molding. HP and other manufacturers are already experimenting with other materials such as high-temperature glass and fabrics, but those solutions are still some years away from being commercially viable.
3. Onsemi announces world's first TOLL-packaged SiC MOSFET with 60% smaller packaging, enhanced performance and lower losses
Onsemi recently announced the world’s first TO-Leadless (TOLL) packaged silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET which is intended for demanding applications including switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), server and telecommunication power supplies, solar inverters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and energy storage. The device is suitable for designs that are required to meet the most challenging efficiency standards including ErP and 80 PLUS Titanium.
