Converter series for gate circuits
Murata's MGJ1 1 W dc-dc converter series are designed for driving high- and low-side gate circuits such as insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) and silicon carbide metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (SiC MOSFETs) for optimal efficiency.
Murata's MGJ1 1 W dc-dc converter series are designed for driving high- and low-side gate circuits such as insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) and silicon carbide metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (SiC MOSFETs) for optimal efficiency. With high isolation characteristics, up to 5.2 kVdc, the MGJ1 offers the popular nominal output voltage combinations of +15/-5, +15/-9, or +19/-5 Vdc. The series also offers a choice of 5, 12, or 24 Vdc input. The MGJ1 series is characterized for high dV/dt immunity, which is designed for continued operation in fast switching circuits, and partial discharge performance that contributes to a long service life. Also, the converter's low input-to-output coupling capacitance assists in reducing the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI). The series suits a broad range of medical applications and the converter also can be used for reinforced insulation by incorporating a 9.3 mm creepage and clearance space helps safety agency approvals for high working voltage applications.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
