PFC Design – Maximizing Efficiency and Lowering Cost with GaN Transistors

Achieving efficiencies greater than 98% in conventional Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuits is challenging. The major hurdle is fixed diode bridge losses. An option to overcome this is to use silicon MOSFETs in place of the diodes to achieve efficiencies of 99% or more. However, this BTPPFC approach suffers from poor reverse recovery performance, is suitable only for low power, and requires complicated control parameters.

Smooth Traffic Flow Through Automatic Barriers: Infrared LED Optimizes License Plate Recognition

Osram Opto Semiconductors is expanding its offering of high-power infrared LEDs for illumination solutions to include a new wavelength (810 nm). This development will benefit camera systems, such as those used to read license plates. They can use this additional wavelength to improve image contrast making it easier to read patterns from recorded images. Moreover, camera sensors have higher sensitivity at 810 nm. At the same optical output, the new device therefore extends the range of camera systems as compared to 850 nm.
