I2C – Everything you need to know

There is no need for a wordy introduction to I2C protocol. We all know it's main parts - 2 wires, multiple slaves, sometimes multiple masters, up to 5MHz of speed. Often so have we all implemented an I2C connection. Still, every now and then, there's that module that just won't work. This time, we will do an in-depth research about the I2C protocol, and try to cover as much ground as possible. Overview ...

BUK9J0R9-40H – A Super Junction MOSFET with Low On-State Resistance

A MOSFET known as a metal-oxide-semiconductor-field-effect transistor is a special type of field-effect transistor which has an insulated gate where in this case the voltage determines the conductivity of the device. Just like conventional transistors, they are also used for switching and amplifying signals. MOSFETs are now more commonly used in digital and analog circuits than BJTs (bipolar junction transi ...
