Würth Elektronik showcases learning kit to study magnetics in power supply

first_imgWürth Elektronik eiSos will introduce the new TI-PMLK – Würth Elektronik Edition at electronica 2018. The TI-PMLK (Texas Instruments Power Management Lab Kit) Würth Elektronik Edition, developed in collaboration with Texas Instruments and Prof. Nicola Femia, University of Salerno, Italy, is a learning kit that helps engineering students and electrical engineers study and understand the impact of magnetics on a buck power supply. The inductors and transformers are key components of DC-DC converters that are widely used in power management applications. Most universities do not offer courses in the area of power management, especially those addressing the challenges associated with design and optimization of power electronics, which is a key element of any electronic system.This kit is composed of a single board and an experiment book. The board consists of two independent buck circuits with six different inductors that can be individually selected. The hands-on kit allows the users to investigate the performances of inductors with different core materials, inductance, and size to analyze their impact on the static and dynamic performance of regulators. Each circuit features adjustable operating conditions including a flexible switching frequency (100kHz – 700kHz) to observe its effect on inductors and on switching regulators operating with different inductors.Both regulators incorporate a passable EMI input filter, to analyze the influence of inductors on conducted noise attenuation, and to compare the performances of filters with inductors selected according to different design strategies. Each regulator includes over-voltage, over-current and polarity reversal protections to prevent damage to the board. Current sense transformers and integrated current shunt monitors on the board allow easy current measurements using standard voltage probes.In addition to the hardware, an experiment book with structured labs helps the users investigate the board, by autonomously performing six detailed experiments for steady-state, transient and dynamic conditions seen in real-world applications. The kit allows analyzing the inductance of different inductors, investigating inductors saturation and thermal behavior, estimating DC and AC power losses, measuring ripple current and ripple voltage, and observing continuous and discontinuous operation modes and transient response.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components, Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Winbond announces 64Mbit addition to 1.2V SpiFlash memory familyNext Everlight to demonstrate smart automotive and infrared productslast_img read more

IT raids continue for second day against people linked to CM Kamal

first_imgNew Delhi/Bhopal: The Income-Tax Department raids against close aides of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and others continued Monday with search teams making seizures of documents and cash, officials said. Officials said the searches, on charges of alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions during the ongoing poll season, are continuing at various premises in Bhopal, Indore and in Delhi and national capital region as tax sleuths are gathering details and evidences. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details While there is no official word on the exact amount of cash seized, sources said over Rs 10 crore suspected cash has been seized till now. At least half-a-dozen people, linked to alleged hawala dealer Paras Mal Lodha, are being questioned by the department. The department had launched pre-dawn raids at 52 locations on Sunday on people and associates linked to Nath. Sources had told PTI that there is a “strong possibility” of the cash recovered during the operation being used as an election inducement to fund political campaigns and bribe voters in the poll-bound state and in Delhi. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday A preliminary report of the raids was also shared by the department with the Central Board of Direct Taxes and the Election Commission in Delhi. A cash van with large-sized trunks has been sent by the department at a location in Bhopal to seize and collect the cash found during the raids, they said. Those searched included Nath’s former Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Pravin Kakkar, former adviser Rajendra Miglani, Ashwani Sharma and executives linked to his brother-in-law’s firm Moser Bayer and his nephew Ratul Puri’s company. Nath had reacted late Sunday to the development. “The situation about the I-T raids is not clear yet. It would be appropriate to speak on this after the situation is clear. But the entire country knows how the constitutional institutions were used and against whom they were used during the past five years,” he had said. “These institutions were used to scare people. When they do not have anything to say on development and their work, they used this kind of tactics against their opponents,” the CM’s statement had said.last_img read more

Lighthouse Cubans appeal decision to be sent back to Cuba

first_imgSUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. (WSVN) – The group of Cuban migrants found on a lighthouse near Sugarloaf Key plan to appeal a federal judge’s decision to send them back to Cuba.The group of 24, dubbed the “Lighthouse Cubans,” were hoping to stay in Miami based on the “wet foot, dry foot” policy after they made a swim to the American Shoal Lighthouse when they came in contact with the U.S. Coast Guard. Twenty-one of the migrants made it to the lighthouse, just seven miles off Sugarloaf Key.On Tuesday, the judge ruled the that the lighthouse did not constitute as U.S. land. Therefore, they must return to Cuba.Had the judge determined that the lighthouse constituted land, it would have allowed the group to stay. Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Penthouse Plans 250M IPO

first_imgPlayboy’s stock price closed at $7.77 per share Thursday, down more than 30 percent from its 52-week high of $11.85 in October.Led by CEO Marc Bell, the company has tried to reposition the magazine—long thought to be a seedier version of Playboy—to compete with Hugh Hefner’s brand juggernaut.”We put the magazine back to its roots, where it used to be,” Bell told Reuters Wednesday. “We made it a young man’s magazine, slightly edgier pictorially than Playboy.”It’s a category that is hemorrhaging at the moment.Playboy said last month that it expects a 30 percent decline in advertising revenue during the first quarter of 2008. Playboy publishing group’s net revenue was $93.8 million in 2007, down from $97.1 million in 2006. The grim advertising projection came on the heels of its Audit Bureau of Circulations Fas-Fax statement, which indicated that single copy sales of the magazine fell 35.8 percent during the second half of 2007. Total circulation fell from 3,001,723 to 2,700,262—a 10 percent drop.Total paid circulation for Maxim, a magazine both Penthouse and Playboy purport to compete with, was flat. Penthouse’s average paid circulation was 350,000 during the second half of 2007, down three percent over the second half of 2006, according to ABC. Penthouse’s single copy sales—which make up roughly a third of its total paid circulation—were down 11 percent.Bell bought Penthouse in 2005. Penthouse Media Group has announced their intent to register for an initial public offering with the Securities and Exchange Commission during the second quarter of 2008.The Boca Raton, Florida-based publisher plans to offer $250 million worth of stock in order to pay down its debt.The company has been aggressive in the digital space. Penthouse Media Group acquired 25 Web sites, including adultfriendfinder.com, for some $500 million in December. (Penthouse projected the acquisition would put its annual revenue at $340 million. Playboy’s 2007 revenues were $339.8 million.)last_img read more

After Arrest Of Suspected Golden State Killer Details Of His Life Emerge

first_img Share FBIA sketch of the Golden State Killer, an individual associated with a spree of rapes and killings between 1976 and 1986. On Tuesday, police arrested Joseph James DeAngelo and named him as the suspect.A day after authorities announced the arrest of the suspected Golden State Killer, a few details have come into focus.A can of dog repellant and a hammer from a suburban Sacramento Pay N’ Save: the things that Joseph James DeAngelo shoplifted in 1979, costing him his job as a police officer in Auburn, Calif.The coins and small items that the man then called the East Area Rapist would take during his attacks.The as-yet-unidentified item discarded by DeAngelo that had a sample of his DNA on it — enough to provide the evidence leading to his arrest.The FBI posters seeking information about a white man with blond or light brown hair and an athletic build, sketched many decades ago — now with “Captured” emblazoned in red.The 72-year-old from Citrus Heights, Calif., has now been charged with eight murders in three California counties. Police suspect he committed at least four other murders and about 50 rapes.The crimes terrorized Sacramento in the late 1970s, FBI case agent Marcus Knutson said in a 2016 video.“If you lived in Sacramento during that time frame, you have a story of what happened and where you were and what was going on,” Knutson said. “Everybody knows about East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer here in Sacramento. During that time frame, everybody was in fear. We had people sleeping with shotguns. We had people purchasing dogs. I think locksmiths’ business went way out of control because of the fact that everyone was changing locks on their doors.”So, who is Joseph DeAngelo? According to The Sacramento Bee:DeAngelo was born in New York state and graduated from high school east of Sacramento. He enlisted in the Navy and fought in Vietnam, then returned and got a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.From 1973 to 1976, he worked as a police officer in Exeter, Calif., close to the city of Visalia, which in 1974 and 1975 was terrorized by 85 burglaries and a murder, a series of crimes attributed to a perpetrator known as the Visalia Ransacker.In 1976, DeAngelo became a police officer in Auburn, Calif., until his termination for shoplifting. He married in 1973, later divorced, and was living with a daughter and granddaughter until he was arrested this week.Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office/APJoseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested this week.“The time frame of the crimes supports that the suspect was a police officer when he committed some of these crimes,” said Sean Ragan, special agent in charge of the FBI Sacramento office, according to the Los Angeles Times.The Bee compiled a long list of the crimes associated with the Golden State Killer — or as he was previously known, the East Area Rapist or the Original Night Stalker. The majority of the rapes occurred in the years while DeAngelo was a police officer, but from the December 1979 to May 1986, 10 people in California were killed in murders later tied to the East Area Rapist.In 2011, the Times reported that new DNA technology had allowed authorities to connect the spree of rapes Northern California with the killings in Southern California.The search for Golden State Killer picked up renewed intensity in 2016, when Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert helped create a task force to find him. The FBI offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.“If he is still alive, the killer would now be approximately 60 to 75 years old,” the FBI said at the time. “He is described as a white male, close to six feet tall, with blond or light brown hair and an athletic build. He may have an interest or training in military or law enforcement techniques, and he was proficient with firearms.”Writer Michelle McNamara became obsessed with the case, and she started the True Crime Diary website. Earlier this year, McNamara’s posthumously published book on her search for the killer, I’ll Be Gone In The Dark, became a bestseller. It’s slated to be turned into an HBO docuseries.Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said they used DNA evidence from a discarded item to link DeAngelo with samples the killer had left behind years ago.Schubert said there was a break in the case six days ago, but authorities haven’t yet revealed how they came to suspect the former police officer, who retired last year after 27 years working in a supermarket distribution warehouse. A man who worked with him for years told the Bee that the DeAngelo was “a regular joe” — except that he never smiled.Neighbors told the Bee differing accounts of whether DeAngelo seemed normal, but many mentioned he had a very short temper. His recent criminal record shows nothing major, according to the Times.Police waited outside DeAngelo’s house for days, monitoring the retiree’s movements, The Associated Press reports. Authorities finally moved in and arrested him without incident at his home in the Sacramento suburb of Citrus Heights.DeAngelo told the officers that he had a roast in the oven, and they told him they’d take care of it.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Staggering pay but no risk culture econ inquiry told

first_imgBy Elias HazouSOME OF the top executives at Bank of Cyprus (BoC) were taking home close to half a million euros during the lender’s heyday, the panel probing Cyprus’ financial meltdown heard yesterday.Yet the hefty bonuses, though linked to profitability, did not encourage a risk culture, former bank officers insisted yesterday.They also repeated the mantra that the bank’s purchase of Greek government debt – which later crashed and burned – seemed a good idea at the time.The bank’s ex-CEO Andreas Eliades, who resigned in July 2012, earned €324,000 in salary and €273,600 in bonuses.The data relates to the period 2005-2008, during which Andreas Pittas – testifying before the panel yesterday – sat on the bank’s remuneration committee.Meanwhile BoC group chief general manager Yiannis Kypri got a paycheque of €213,750 plus €128,250 in bonuses. Charilaos Stavrakis, appointed chief executive officer for Cyprus operations and deputy group CEO in 2005, earned wages of €242,820 and a bonus totalling €171,000.And according to Pittas, the top execs’ earnings rose further in subsequent years – amid the global financial crisis.In 2004 the bank commissioned McKinsey & Co consultants to review the remunerations. The consultancy recommended a salary cut for Eliades and a raise for Kypri and Stavrakis. They also proposed higher incentives for bonuses in a bid to boost bank profitability.Profit-making was one of the criteria governing bonuses, Pittas said. Though acknowledging that these amounts may sound outrageous today, he said that at the time they were in line with top bankers’ remuneration in other countries, like Greece.Anna Diogenous, head of the remuneration committee from September 2008 to June 2010, dismissed the notion that pay policy at the bank encouraged risk-taking.“Both the executives and the board members were extremely careful,” she told the panel.Quizzed about the bank’s purchase of Greek debt in late 2009-early 2010, Diogenous said that at the time Greek government bonds (GGBs) had a good rating and were considered ‘a safe investment’.Manthos Mavrommatis, who chaired BoC’s remuneration committee from 2010 to 2012, had a slightly different take on the bank’s buying up of GGBs.In retrospect, he said, the acquisition of GGBs at the time was risky, even though the European Central Bank deemed the bonds as risk-free.No one then anticipated the ultimate extent of the write-down of the Greek bonds, he added.Mavrommatis said that in his opinion, BoC did apply sound corporate governance.“But implementing regulations is one thing and the lack of culture quite another,” he said.Mavrommatis noted also that the bank lacked a single private investor with enough muscle on the board to ‘offset’ the influence of executives.A report by financial forensics experts Alvarez & Marsal found that in late 2009 and early 2010 BoC spent billions of euros buying Greek bonds – at a time when international banks were cutting exposure to the heavily indebted Athens government.Those Greek bonds lost most of their value in last year’s EU-sanctioned bailout, playing a key role in plunging Cyprus into an economic maelstrom.The report said that executives may not have revealed details of bond purchases to board directors, avoided showing losses on the bonds, and may later have delayed external investigation of the bond purchases.In December 2009, managers told media and their own board that most of the bank’s Greek bond holdings had been sold – but the bank did not then disclose that it had almost immediately bought more.By April 2010, the bank had expanded its holding of GGBs to €2.4 billion, a third more than the amount Kypri had told Stockwatch had been sold four months before. The investigators said this went beyond the bank’s own approved €2 billion limit but was approved retrospectively in May 2010.The same report noted “a culture whereby senior management decisions were not challenged”.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
