ST’s latest BCD shows how SOI yet again enables huge reductions in power consumption. What if you had to reduce power dissipation by 40x? That’s exactly the task that fell to ST, under an EU program called Smart Power Management. At the recent ISPSD (International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs) conference, STMicroelectronics and […]
